12:44am EDT: "The reason they keep trying to attack Halliburton is because they want to obscure their own error. And senator you have a record in the senate not very distinguished. You missed 33 out of 36 meetings of the judiciary committee, 70% of the meetings in the intelligence committee. You have missed a lot of key votes on tax policy, on energy, on Medicare reform. Your hometown newspaper has taken to calling you senator gone. You have one of the worst attendance records in the United States senate. In my capacity as vice president, I am the president of the senate, the presiding officer; I'm in the senate most Tuesdays in session. The first time I met you was when you walked on the stage tonight."
