Have you heard about the HBO documentary Diary of a Political Tourist (Alexandra Pelosi)? I’ve watched it twice now, and I need to share something with you. In one scene, Pelosi asks NY Representative Peter King (Repub.) at a 2003 White House event whether he considers Bush a lock for re-election. His response:
“It’s all over but the counting, and we’ll take care of the counting”.
I feel close to 100% certain that was the quote, word for word, though I of course would love to have further verification. I’m still absolutely floored by this.
I haven’t seen the documentary yet. Can anyone else confirm this?
