  •  I once recall Dick Cavett ...... (10+ / 0-)

    ...... asking Senator Inouye - while he was serving on that famous Senate Watergate committee - how he pronounced his last name?

       Cavett then pointed out that Inouye's committee chairman - the colorful Sam Ervin of North Carolina - pronounced his name more like "Senator Norway".

       RIP.

      of the Strom Thurmond "clementine" incident during the impeachment of Clinton:

      During a break, the G.O.P.'s Strom Thurmond, 96, drew clementines from his pockets and, with a flirtatious grin, passed them to Cheryl Mills and Nicole Seligman, two of the President's lawyers.
      Don't ask me why.

      Get your goddamned guns out of my church. This means you.
