I don't know....some of the Senators who spoke about "legitimate rape" and how a woman's body can "shut down" a pregnancy rank right up there. I'm surprised they weren't included.

I like: ""I'm an honorary consul general, so I have inviolability."
It made sing the following from "Pirates of Penzance":

I am the very model of an honorary Consul-General
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral
I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical
From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical

I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical
I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical
About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse

With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse

I'm very good at integral and differential calculus
I know the scientific names of beings animalculous
In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
I am the very model of an honorary Consul-General.
For this I am a master of inviolability!
