DURST: Closed Doors

Through a partisan vote, the Senate voted to discuss their opinions on dismissing the Impeachment case behind closed doors. Of course as we all know,Senate rule 29 makes it an expulsionary offense to reveal what was said when the big boys and girls of Congress let their hair down. After a couple of discreet cash transactions, we are proud to be able to reveal exactly what was said without fear of expulsion since we aren't a big time Senator.* All those in favor of requiring the House Managers refer to us as the "Right High Overlord Masters," say aye.* Would someone please empty Senator Thurmond's drool cup.* Senator Wellstone is hereby refrained from calling Senator Gramm "Ole Bullethead."* No, I'm sorry Senator, there's no chance we can bend Impeachment rules so Ms. Lewinsky can conduct re-enactments.* Anybody know what a four letter word for accomplishing a task is? Starts with a w.* Yes, Senator Schumer, it's always been the tradition of this august body for all new members to make the rest of us lunch.* Who ate all the cashews out of the mixed nuts? I'm getting tired of this.* Okay, well, that's a wrap. We agree to check with the Attorney General to see if electrocution is an option.Will Durst thinks electrocution is a great compromise.
