Editor, Times-Union:
Greeting to the poor voters that put this used buggy whip salesman Dan Coats into the  just U.S. Senate. It seems ol’ Dan has become senile to the point where he can’t find the right committee meeting room in La Cesspool Grande. He starts to testify but to the wrong committee and has to be told he is in the wrong room.
SEN. TOM UDALL: Undersecretary Cohen, I just wanted to –
DAN COATS: I just got a note saying I’m at the wrong hearing and the wrong room
COATS: I’ve got the right room number but the wrong hearing.
COHEN: Well, that would explain why I didn’t know anything about this letter. (Laughter.)
COATS: Well, this is the first time this has ever happened to me, but I hope it’s not a precursor of what –
UDALL: You’re always welcome in our committee.
COATS: Well, thank you. I saw some familiar faces and I thought this is where I should be.
COHEN: Thank you, Senator.
COATS: I hope you’re able to respond as quickly as the undersecretary of the Army responded. I’ll go try to find out where I’m supposed to be. Thank you.
"The best representatives money can buy!" Pleasant dreams.
