Quote of the Holiday Weekend

"You're a great baseball man."

-- U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va. to Sen. Jim Bunning, R-Ky., during an argument on the Senate floor overheard by The Washington Post.

The Post reported that when Bunning retorted that he "he has the same rights on the floor as Byrd," history's longest-serving U.S. senator replied, "Yeah, man, you're a senator," and laughed hysterically.

The Politico also has the exchange, which made Quote of the Day on Taegan Goddard's Political Wire as well.
