Lisa Schiffren, Dan Quayle's speechwriter, appeared as a guest on the January 18, 1993 airing of CNN's Crosspoint show. Based on her performance, we should extend a little sympathy to Quayle during these waning days of the Bush administration, for perhaps the many gaffs he made should be attributed to Ms. Schiffren. Ms. Schiffren blasted President-elect Clinton's recent suggestion that the U.S. normalize relations with Iraq, saying Clinton should think twice before he "extends a fig leaf [sic] to Saddam Hussein." Sure adds new meaning to the insult: I wouldn't touch Saddam Hussein with a ten-foot pole.
