Someone anonymously left this comment. It deserved to be bumped up: (With apologies to the writers of the most recent episode of "24".) The Scene: A four-term senator sits at a desk in his study, contemplating the end of his political career. His phone rings. SENATOR HATCH: Hello? MARK TOWNER: Senator Hatch? Mark Towner with CTU (Conservative Tricks Unit) SENATOR HATCH: Yes, Mark. MARK TOWNER: Senator, I'm a delegate to the Utah Republican Party state convention on Saturday. SENATOR HATCH: Why are you calling me? MARK TOWNER: Because, senator, I know that your opponent Mike Ridgway is scheduled to speak from the same stage that you are. SENATOR HATCH: Go on. MARK TOWNER: Because of the threat his comments pose to the loyalty of the Republican faithful, I feel compelled to intervene and I just wanted to make sure that you would approve. SENATOR HATCH: I do, Mr. Towner. I do approve. MARK TOWNER: Very well. SENATOR HATCH: And Mark? MARK TOWNER: Yes, Senator? SENATOR HATCH: I won't forget this. MARK TOWNER: Thank you, Senator.
