  2. His resignation speech: doesn't want his "family" to get dragged through gutter. He threw them in the gutter. He claims not to have broken any laws. Thanks, mom and dad, for making that possible.
    But wouldn't you think he would consider his marriage vows a kind of law? Who's making marriage look bad?

  7. Cryin' out loud: the expression is Yiddish and Rachel's Jewish. Cut her some slack.
