This audio of Michele Bachmann and Arlen Specter bickering inanities and talking over each other — which the money shot being Specter telling Bachmann to act like a lady (Classy!) — only lasts one minute and twelve seconds. But it'll be the longest minute and twelve seconds of your life.
About halfway through, I started fantasizing about my upcoming dentist appointment.
The sound of that drill… So soothing…

Do you know who I feel bad for these days? The GOP. Try as they might, they just can't get any little tiny amount of bipartisanship out of the current White House…
During his appearance yesterday on Fox News Sunday, Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) appeared to give out some inside dirt from his days as a Republican — alleging that the GOP plotted early to stop any bipartisan cooperation with President Obama, and to instead look towards the 2012 election…
"[B]efore the ink was dry on the oath of office — and I know this, because I was in the caucus — the Republicans were already plotting ways to beat President Obama in 2012."
Who weeps for the Republican Party, I ask you. Who weeps for that noble dying beast?
