World Class Gassbag

Chivas connoisseur Ted Kennedy to Judge John Roberts today: "Judges are appointed by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, and it is our duty to ask questions on great issues that matter to the American people and speak for them. Judge Roberts, I hope you will respond fully and candidly to such questions, not just to earn our approval, but to prove to the American people that you have earned the right to a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land."

Oldsmobile Submarine Captain (in training) Ted Kennedy to Thurgood Marshall in 1967: "We have to respect that any nominee to the Supreme Court would have to defer any comments on any matters which are either before the court or very likely to appear before the court."
