Past The Dregs, Past the Bottom of the Barrel, Straight Through to the Bare Earthen Floor of the Cellar

I was listening to The Hearings while on the Nordic Track a little while ago (because nothing gets a girl's heart rate into the training zone like being infuriated with Sen. Kennedy, that's why), and Sen. Feinstein actually asked Roberts about his "role" in Iran-Contra. Oy! At this rate they'll ask him whether, in a previous life, he was responsible for Teapot Dome.
