The truthiness of George Tenet.

"The truthiness of George Tenet."

Former CIA Director George Tenet in his new book:

In a way, President Bush and I are much alike. We sometimes say things from our gut, whether it’s his “bring ‘em on” or my “slam dunk.” I think he gets that about me, just as I get that about him.

Stephen Colbert at the White House Correspondents Dinner:

We’re not so different, [Bush] and I. We both get it. Guys like us, we’re not some brainiacs on the nerd patrol. We’re not members of the factinista. We go straight from the gut, right sir? That’s where the truth lies. Right down here in your gut.
