Karl Rove, Checking Implants (Update: Caption Contest!)

Remember the scene from Blade Runner where Decker interrogates suspects to determine whether they're replicants? Well, it turns out that an implant check largely follows the same kind of procedures:

KR: When you see a New York Times editoral, how does it make you feel?

CQ: Sad, as though something once brilliant has died and still doesn't realize it ... like the network news programs.

KR: It's working!

Come on ... secretly you knew that this really happens, didn't you?

Addendum: We kid, Karl, we kid. We kid because the implant told me to do so.

UPDATE: Oh, let's have more fun at my expense. Let's make this a Caption Contest. Be sure to put your entries in the comments section -- no e-mail entries, please! -- and I'll pick a winner by Sunday night.
