Mr. Speaker, I suggest that we will need to take our pants off

You are invited.

You are invited.

The regular session’s over, a special session looms, and uncertainty is all around. What to do? Well, it turns out that Rep. Jeanne Darneille keeps track of some of the more memorable quotes from speeches on the House floor, and while we wait for the other shoe to drop, they make hilarious reading.

Joe Turner over at the Tacoma News-Tribune has the full list, but here are some of our favorites:

Mr. Speaker, I suggest that we will need to take our pants off. We’ll need to take our pants off and buy a pair that is about three sizes smaller. This is not a sufficient belt tightening bill, Mr. Speaker. -Rep. Alexander

Mr. Speaker, I’d like permission to use my hand as a prop. -Rep. Klippert

We’re just clipping the hair off the fur ball of government, cutting something that doesn’t work anyway. -Rep. Dunshee

So the other body changed the title, proving the other body is good for something… -Rep. Goodman

The Senate sent us a virgin…a VERSION…of the bill. -Rep. Hurst
