Why did the chicken cross the road?

DONALD TRUMP: We will build a big wall to keep the chickens from crossing the road, and we will make the chickens pay for it.
JOHN KERRY: We will trust the chicken to tell us whether it crossed the road or not.
CHRIS CHRISTIE: We need to water board that chicken to find out why it crossed the road.
RAND PAUL: It’s none of our business why the chicken crossed the road.
NANCY PELOSI: We will have to wait until the chicken crosses the road to see what it says.
CARLY FIORINA: Hilary Clinton lied about why the chicken crossed the road.
BRIAN WILLIAMS: I crossed the road with the chicken.
BEN CARSON: This isn’t brain surgery.
SARAH PALIN: Because, gosh-darn it, he’s a maverick!
HILLARY CLINTON: What difference at this point does it make why the chicken crossed the road?
GEORGE W. BUSH: We don’t really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or against us.
BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken.
DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won’t realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road.
OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross the road so badly. I’m going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so he can just drive across the road.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in the rain, alone. 
BILL GATES: I have just released  a Chicken –2015, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents and balance your checkbook.
ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?
COLONEL SANDERS: Did I miss one?
AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white?
AL GORE: I invented the chicken.
BARACK OBAMA: Let me be perfectly clear, if the chickens like their eggs they can keep their eggs.
BERNIE SANDERS:  All the eggs this chicken laid on the other side of the road, need to be shared equally with all other chickens, even if they didn’t lay eggs.

Subject: POLITICO Breaking News: RNC drops NBC partnership

The RNC has canceled plans to partner with NBC News for a Feb. 26 debate, citing a “bad faith” performance by CNBC in Wednesday night’s meeting of the candidates.

“The CNBC network is one of your media properties, and its handling of the debate was conducted in bad faith,” Priebus wrote. “We understand that NBC does not exercise full editorial control over CNBC’s journalistic approach. However, the network is an arm of your organization, and we need to ensure there is not a repeat performance.”

Priebus argued that CNBC assured the committee that the debate would focus on substantive policy issues like jobs and taxes, but he said the network failed on that count. He also said it failed to guarantee relatively equal speaking time for the candidates.

“While we are suspending our partnership with NBC News and its properties, we still fully intend to have a debate on that day, and will ensure that National Review remains part of it,” Priebus added.
