    As a canadian I’d certainly vote for him as president.

    I think your hanging preposition just fell completely off that sentence.

    Maybe I should run for president. I can do that from Singapore, right? I’m still a citizen, after all, and I think running the US from Singapore would be safer anyway.

    “And when I split an infinitive, God dammit, I split it so it shall stay split.” – Raymond Chandler.


    (went parenthesis happy with it — any better?)

    Where is that quote from? It’s pretty awesome and I haven’t encountered it before in my Chandler readings.

    Slightly better, as it is now grammatically correct, though the parenthesis make it feel clunkier than it actually is.

    The quote’s from a letter Chandler sent to the copy-editor at The Atlantic Monthly back in the day; I’ve got the complete text someplace. I’ll see if I can’t dig up the reference for you.

    That would be great, thanks.

    Here’s the quote in full, taken from “Lines to a Lady with an Unsplit Infinitive,” in The Notebooks of Raymond Chandler, published by Ecco Press, 1976.

    When the galleys for one of Chandler’s articles in the Atlantic Monthly were returned for his corrections, he noticed that certain changes had been made in his text. Accordingly, he wrote as follows to Edward Weeks, the Atlantic’s editor: “Would you convey my compliments to the purist who reads your proofs and tell him or her that I write a sort of broken-down patois which is something like the way a Swiss waiter talks, and that when I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split, and when I interrupt the velvety smoothness of my more or less literate syntax with a few sudden words of bar-room vernacular, that is done with the eyes wide open and the mind relaxed but attentive.”

    beautiful quote, wonderful video.

    in order to fucking skip the middleman – (M)Palin for Prez!

  9. thecomicman

    Awesome! Thank you very much. I will have to go book hunting later this week.

    Come and see the violence inherent in the system!

    You know, this idea just never stops being funny. I’d take a member of Monty Python in office over a Republican any day of the week.

    Go see if the neoRhino party is putting up a candidate in your riding!

  12. shanejayell

    Oooh, thanks.

  13. thatnickguy

    I’d vote for him!

    Then again, I’d vote for Zod, but he can’t be any worse than Bush.

  14. slick_nyc

    …and he probably is more qualified that Sarah Palin.

    Let’s not forget that he’s better traveled.

  16. the_fallen_

    only probably? ;)

    The second I watched the video I was like, yeah I’d vote for him in a second.
