World's Greatest Deliberative Body
Chuck Grassley plays the dozens on Kent Conrad:
Note to Grassley: dude, did you have a colonoscopy earlier in the day or what?
Mr. Grassley: I’d like to suggest to the chairman that he might want to support this because, you remember, you asked me two years ago not to take a vote on it and you said if we did take a vote on it you might not get your budget resolution adopted. So I did not ask for a vote on it and you said it was a very statesmanlike thing for me to do at that particular time and so I would hope that you would return the favor.
Mr. Conrad: You know, I used to like you. Let me just say: Oh, you are good.
Mr. Grassley: Well, your wife said the same thing.
