The Legislative Branch
“Let me tell you something, some of these freshmen are just so weird. Workaholics, worse than Leahy and Durbin. And I know how to be a workaholic. But these guys, it’s almost like they’re cooped up in their offices 24/7. At least I take breaks for food.”
—Lawrence O’Donnell, “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell”, January 27, 2017.
