A crack up

It’s pretty certain that Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., would have loved a do-over on one remark he made while talking to Wade Henderson, president of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, about scheduling a Senate Judiciary hearing on the crack cocaine problem.

Sessions said he and Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., had been in discussions, saying: “Senator Leahy and I were talking during these hearings — we’re going to do that crack cocaine thing you and I have talked about before.”

The hearing room cracked up.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., looked over at Sessions. “Please rephrase it, Senator. please rephrase,” he said. Sessions laughed along with the crowd, but also clarified: “I misspoke.”

Allot of funny things happen in Congress, but this is real funny and if you want a political laugh this is it.   We spend our days discussing such serious topics, so when I come across something like this I take the time out to let people know about it.  Nothing politically scandalous about it, just a conversation and some misspoken words….
