Stephen Colbert's description of Matt Cooper/Karl Rove's "Double Secret Background Check":
"It's just like regular background but with no tagbacks, frontsies or backsies, taken to infinity plus one on opposite day, circle circle dot dot now you've got a cootie shot. It was first pioneered by Edward R. Murrow."
John Stewart on the White House Press Corp re: Karl Rove:
"We have secretly replaced the White House press corps with actual reporters."
