After his announcement of offering to replace the soon to be recalled Gavin Newsom, Governor of California, Chainsaw Chicken faced the press who wanted to ask him about the reasons he is running.

“Why are you running?” asked a reporter from the Times.

Chainsaw answered ““I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!” (Network, 1976).

The reporter continued, “You were friends with the Governor, what Changed?”

Chainsaw paused and said softly, “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.” (The Godfather Part II, 1974)

Another reporter chimed in “What did you say to the Governor when you made up your mind to replace him?”

Chainsaw raised a finger in the air and stated ”What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate.” (Cool Hand Luke, 1967)

Newsweek asked “Do you always answer in movie quotes?”

Chainsaw again starred at the reporter and slowly said “You talkin’ to me?” (Taxi Driver, 1976)

She answered “Yes, It matters to our readers”.

With a evil smile Chainsaw muttered back “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn” (Gone with the Wind, 1939)

Reuters guy asked “Is that the truth? Really?”

Again, Chainsaw simply said “You can’t handle the truth!” (A Few Good Men, 1992), then he added, “I have to wrap this up. I’m having an old friend for dinner” (The Silence of the Lambs, 1991)
