They're all Quayle quotes. At least they left out the bogus Latin America quote.

this one I've heard quoted to both Al and Dubya:
"It's not the pollution that's harming the environment, it's the impurities in the air and water that are doing it." (It's from memory, and probably a little off).
So who actually said it?

What I always found funny about the "America is in Europe" quote is that it is essentially true -- the US is culturaly, politically, and militarily "in" Europe.

In fact, I thought that was one of the concerns of the European leaders, that the US does not want to be "in" Europe but leave Europe, NATO and the rest to its own devices.

What is also interesting is that in the UK, there is a big question if that country ios or should be "part" of Europe, meaning the EU, not whether the British Isles should be cut lose and towed smorewhere out into the Atlantic.
