Why, yes, this does sound familiar. Think back ... waaaaaay back. Oh, right:
Richard Nixon to counsel Leonard Garment: ``Leonard, as my counsel, I think it's about time you took a look at these transcripts of the secret tapes. As you can see, there are many frank and candid remarks which, if taken out of context, might create a false impression.''
Garment: ``Yessir. I can see one here on page two.''
Nixon: ``Which one's that?''
Garment: `` `Well, John, how's the cover-up going?' ''
Nixon: ``Right! A good example!''
Garment: ``Yessir. It could be misinterpreted.''
Nothing ever changes, does it?
