Winston Churchill: Gag Writer

Recently, when Tucker Carlson (AKA Bowtie Boy) told Crossfire guest John Stewart that he wasn't wasn't being funny on the show, Stewart replied, "You're right. But tomorrow I'll go back to being funny, but your show will still blow."

Wonder if anyone else has noted that Stewart was likely ripping off Winston Churchill. In response to a woman's comment, "Sir, you are drunk!" he famously rejoined, "Madam, you are ugly. But in the morning I shall be sober."

Surely one of the greatest (if also meanest) put-downs of all time.
