Just watched John McCain speak in Scranton, PA – home of the fictional company Dunder Mifflin from the Office.
During his speech John McCain announced that he had originally wanted Dwight Schrute as his VP- not Sarah Palin. This makes a lot of sense, actually. Dwight and John see the world in very similiar ways, as evidenced by some of these classic Dwight Schrute quotes…
Dwight Schrute: In the wild, there is no health care. In the wild, health care is, ‘Ow, I hurt my leg. I can’t run. A lion eats me. I’m dead.’ Well, I’m not dead. I’m the lion. You’re dead.
Dwight Schrute: Women are like wolves. If you want a wolf, you have to trap it. Snare it. Then to keep it happy, you have to tame it. Feed it, care for it. Lovingly. The way an animal deserves. And my animal deserves a lot of loving.
Mr. Brown: At Diversity Today, we believe it’s very easy to be a hero. All you need are honesty, empathy, respect, and open-mindedness.
Dwight Schrute: Ah, excuse me? I’m sorry, but that’s not all it takes to be a hero.
Mr. Brown: Great, well, what is a hero to you?
Dwight Schrute: A hero kills people, people that wish him harm. A hero is part human and part supernatural. A hero is born out of a childhood trauma, or out of a disaster, that must be avenged.
Dwight Schrute: Chu chu chu chu.
Jim Halpert: What are you doing?
Dwight Schrute: Vietnam sounds.
