evil spirit and demented, if you will, personality to do what he has done. >> i'm just trying to get this right. you're doubling down on what you said six years ago. >> you could say that, yes. okay. i'm leaning more towards obama being more like the son of satan. >> i'm sorry... you believe, now, he's more the son of satan? >> yes, i do. what's going on in that head of yours? >> unmitigated truth. in 16 years, we've interviewed almost 2800 people. you would assume afterwards most would be upset -- like say gun rights activist noel. >> if a doctor is keeping a list of his patients who have firearms, the great fear is if they start correcting this data, it leads to dictators, tie

animals, about how you can improve your relationship with the animals in your house and in your yard, it's incredible. i've always known -- listen, i'm so proud, i've always known that my wife is a kinder and nicer person than i am. but to know that she is funnier and a better writer? (laughter) i'm not going to lie to ya, stings a little bit. but the book is called do unto animals. it's not out right now, but when it comes out, i'm not going to have a show, and holding it up at home, from what i understand, doesn't do (bleep). so you can pre-order it or, better yet, maybe head down to your local book store, maybe your independent book store, ask them to order it for you. it's a remarkable, heartfelt, funny. jane goodall says nice things about it! so i hope you do that.
