"Let's get back to you being good at talking to God but not so good at listening."
"So what's your point?"
"George, communication is a two way street, but you never stick around for the second part, where you listen and maybe learn something. If you did, you never would have invaded Iraq."
"So then what would I have done?"
"You would have spent those trillions of dollars on rebuilding the infrastructure of this country instead of blowing up theirs. You could have revamped the educational and transportation systems, funded research to find nonpolluting alternative fuels while creating millions of good paying jobs beneficial for everyone."
"Don't tell me God is a liberal democrat."
"I'm your conscience."
"So my conscience is a liberal democrat?"
"George, this has nothing to do with partisan labels or political agendas. The Boss doesn't make such petty distinctions. It's simply about doing the right thing at the right time, which means doing the greatest good for the largest number of people while doing the least harm possible."
"I thought that's what I did by getting rid of Saddam. He was a monster."
"Yes, he was a mean son-of-a-gun, that's for sure, but there's no shortage of bad guys on the planet - in fact, there are some right here in your own country who are doing quite well - so why was it so important to go after him?"
"I'll get back to you on that. But what I want to know is if you are my conscience, how is it I can all of a sudden hear you now but not before? Huh? Explain that, conscience boy."
"Because before your head was so full you could never hear me over the ruckus. Now you have nothing to do and you're bored so it's quieter and I'm not getting drowned out."
"OK, so let's just say - hypothetically speaking - if you are my conscience, what do you want?"
"I want to be in the loop, George. Think of all those endless hours you spent consulting with Rice, Cheney and Rummy. How about consulting with me for a change?"
"A cabinet of one."
