  • “All this because the witness who'd been out walking his dog couldn't say whether he saw the genocide happen at 10:15 or 10:30.”

  • “I'm surprised that Milosevic was able to plead his case down to 180,000 charges of vehicular manslaughter.”

  • “I hope they provided him with a good rehabilitation program while he was in jail. Otherwise, he's just going to wind up committing more genocides.”

  • “When I look in his eyes, I don't see a genocidal butcher. I see a man who needs a hug, and I'm the woman who's going to give it to him.”

  • “Who's his defense lawyer? 'Cause I just crushed three people in a drunken backhoe incident, and I totally don't wanna go to jail.”
