The Corner

Bond, Kit Bond

Sen. Kit Bond (R., Mo.) on the floor:

“It’s the economy, stupid . . . the majority doesn’t seem to be paying attention . . .  The bill before us is the crowning achievement of the drive to destroy our economy and our future . . . Instead of debating how to create jobs, we’re debating a bill that will takeover one-sixth of our economy and probably kill jobs.”

Plus this gem:

“We’re like a mosquito in a nudist colony — so many targets, we don’t know who to hit.”
