I miss Ronald Reagan

Somehow I stumbled upon this quote of his about hippies, to wit a hippie is someone who “dresses like Tarzan, has hair like Jane, and smells like Cheetah.”

Is there anyone on the political scene right now that has come up with a better one liner? Clinton did have a few good ones in the early nineties, but the only pithy statements lately are Rice’s “Franco-American relations work much better in reality than in theory” and Rumsfeld’s response when asked him if he thought the Taliban would fight to the death: “We won’t know that until they’re all dead!”.

Rumsfeld and Rice were appointees though. Have there been any good one-liners by anyone running for the 2008 election?
