Overheard at the Capitol...
Unidentified Senator: "If you get ten letters on an issue, it's a big issue."
Senator Graham: "I love the House [of Representatives], but I don't always trust them."
Senator Graham (paraphrase): "But I just read through their governmental regulations, and it only took me 10 minutes! That's not long enough." [We need more government control than that!]
Senator Wilson (discussing birth): "Sometimes the placenta can get tangled around the mother's neck." :P
Senator Wilson: "You know the game, and it's all a game."
Anonymous lobbyist about anonymous legislator: "If he were in a different body, he would be the perfect man." (she was kidding, just for the record)
Abram, a Christian lobbyist, regarding a petty dispute in the legislature: "Regardless of race, religion, or party, when it comes down to it, at the end of the day, all men are four-year-olds."
Greeting card: "When a man is talking in the woods and there is no woman to hear him, is he still wrong?"
Anonymous Legislator: "Oh, those Republicans! Those lazy, corrupt, foolish Republicans! Oh, wait - I'm a Republican."
Anonymous individual: "He's a nice-looking guy. Too bad he's not a nice guy."
