Alberto Gonzalez Smirks, and the Liveliest "Coot Off" You've Ever Seen

Awesome footage from the Daily Show of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales answering question after question about unauthorized NSA wiretaps with "I would be uncomfortable addressing that..."

That is, until Sen. Patrick Leahy cracks wise with "Of course, I'm sorry, Mr. Attorney General, I forgot you can't answer any questions that might be relevent to this." Gonzales then lets go with a smirk, and it's fantastic.

Almost makes me wish I had cable tv. Some of that Senate floor stuff is unexpectedly hilarious. Two aged senators whooping it up with all kinds of Daniel Webster drama, to the point of ridiculousness.
