Harry Reid, speaking earlier on the Senate floor about Nebraska senator Ben Nelson's hair:

"Would be very envious, as I am, and I would even think the presiding officer, about that hair of Ben Nelson's," said Reid on the Senate floor. "I mean, that is a mop of real hair. It's often that people call his office, mail the office--they believe he has a toupee. It his hair. He'll put for you anytime just to show that it's real. I mean he has hair like a 15-year-old, Mr. President. So I have to acknowledge, I'm a little envious of his hair."
