Laugh of the Day

From Timothy Noah’s NYT review of a new biography of Nelson Rockefeller*:

“Impressed by a Thomas Aquinas quote he came across in a newspaper editorial, Rockefeller asked a staff aide to arrange a meeting with this astute theologian.  Rockefeller’s grasp of science didn’t inspire much confidence either.  After being briefed on the harm aerosol products were doing to the ozone layer, he asked: ‘How do all those spray cans get up there?'”

And you thought Dan Quayle was our dumbest Veep.
