Three guilty pleasures
To go from the sublime to the ridiculous:
From the Washington Post’s gossip column, I offer the following quips from speakers at the Washington Press Club Foundation’s annual Congressional Dinner. If you take pleasure in any of these, say three Our Father’s and three Hail Mary’s.
From Rahm Emanuel, proposing himself for Vice-President: “I’ve spent more time in the executive branch than Barack, and I’ve spent more time with Bill than Hillary.
From Sen. Mitch McConnell, on the race between “a New York senator who was born in Illinois, and an Illinois senator who was apparently born in a manger.”
Sen. John Cornyn, noting that the NY Times didn’t attend this year: “Their table didn’t go to waste. They just donated it to MoveOn.org at a discount.”
