    I knew he smoked, but not what brand.

    That's an important distinction.

    I'm a Marlboro Light guy, myself. Can't stomach the Reds.

    I saw a report out there that he's quitting the habit, so I guess the smoke and fire go away.

    The article was wrong about FDR being the last president who smoked. Eisenhower smoked, publicly. I've seen the photos.

    Not before flavoring them a bit.
    And I don't mean dipping them in brandy.

    And Bush smokes crack, so he has to be considered a "smoker".
