Oh My Lord!!

Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho: "I’m en route from downtown Anchorage, to the Ted Stevens International Airport. And as we round the curb and pull up to exit the cab, I look up, and there is your name. And I said, ‘Oh, Ted’s got an airport, that’s neat.’ And the cab driver says, ‘Do you know Uncle Ted?’ I said ‘Yes, I do. I work for him in the United States Senate.’ He says, ‘You do?’ I said, ‘Sure do.’ He said ‘Give him my best when you get back to Washington. Because as an Alaskan, I know of no other person who has done more for my state than Uncle Ted.’ Well, Ted Stevens now knows why I call him Uncle Ted more often than not."
Larry, you ol' kidder, he's known since that layover in Chicago in '98.
