Third Place:
Aaron, “Senators Dodd, Leiberman and Kennedy attempt to demonstrate the flotation devices that will be handed out to New Orleans residents and can be worn under normal casual clothing. Although the devices appear to be a bit saggy and loose, they can aid in…wait a minute. Never mind.”

Honorable Mention:

You’ve just entered the Twilight Zone – one inhabited by a society of tinhat-moonbats.”

SCSIWuzzy, “On a conference call with the DLC: No, no. Teddy was with us the whole time. No. None of the floaters were anywhere near his car. Dont worry Chris has the keys now, and once we find some Chivas, we’ll drop Teddy in his room, and get some work done.”
Timmer, “TK: No honey, really, the hearings are over and we’re deliberating now. Sigh…no, I don’t plan on driving over any bridges, very funny. Look, the other Senators don’t have to got through this every time THEY stay in Washington for the weekend.”
