Sen. Grassley as Zapf Branigan

From U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on Judge Samuel Alito's Nomination to the Supreme Court (transcript):
"GRASSLEY: And I think several horses have been beaten to death, particularly on the other side. And you've been very consistent in your answers, and I thank you. And I think that that speaks to the intellectual honesty of your positions.
It's kind of like we're in the fourth quarter of a football game and you're the quarterback and your team is way ahead here in the fourth quarter and opponents are very desperate, trying to sack you and aren't doing a very good job of it. And they haven't hit you all day, now for two days.
And you're going to keep getting these last-minute Hail Marys thrown at you. So just bear with us. "

"If we hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominos will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate." - Zapf Brannigan
"Too late or still too soon too soon to make lots of bad love and there's no time for sorrow. Run around, run around with a hole in your head 'til tomorrow."
