1. For Emoters Anonymous, the equivalent of Nixon going to China.

2. Oh Gawd, it’s getting worse.

3. Put that in your typology!

4. Like I said, he’s just McConnell and Cantor’s patsy.

5. Ha! And you thought I was planning to riff on the phallic implications of the giant gavel.

6. Just let one Dem wet the hanky, and see what happens.
