Quote of the day, part II

Hat tip to RadioBlogger. Lt. General Honore to a male reporter asking dumb questions: "Don't get stuck on stupid!" Transcripts and audio here. Partial transcript follows:
Honore:...You're asking last storm questions for people who are concerned about the future storm. Don't get stuck on stupid, reporters. We are moving forward. And don't confuse the people please. You are part of the public message. So help us get the message straight. And if you don't understand, maybe you'll confuse it to the people. That's why we like follow-up questions. ...

Male reporter: General, a little bit more about why that's happening this time, though, and did not have that last time...

Honore: You are stuck on stupid. I'm not going to answer that question.
Aside from the embarrassed reporter, who doesn't love this guy?
