Transcription of a clip I saw from Thursday's session in congress on the Daily Show. They were making fun of Byrd's dramatic gestures, but if you listen to what he was saying, it's no laughing matter.
"I've been in this Congress fifty years. I have never seen a President of the United States or the Vice President of the United States stoop to such low levels," said Senator Robert Byrd (D) West Virginia, as he turned and pointed at the people watching at home. "It's your blood," he said. "Your sons and daughters."
