New York Times Select

If David Brooks keeps writing columns like this one, eventually we'll all be forced to cough up our $50, even though we won't admit it to anyone else. Really, this is home-run stuff:
John Roberts Jr. Aw, shucks. This has been a humbling experience, Mr. Chairman. To think that a boy from an exclusive prep school and Harvard Law could grow up and be nominated for the Supreme Court - it shows how in America it's possible to rise from privilege to power! That's the hallmark of our great nation. . . .

Jeff Sessions This may be a good moment to remind my colleagues on the other side of the aisle that in this country unelected judges don't write the laws. We have unelected lobbyists to do that. Under our system, judges merely interpret the law and decide presidential elections. . . .

Edward Kennedy Starry De Cysis? Didn't she do a fan dance down at that old burlesque house in Providence?
