7. "Vice President Joe Biden..." (rest of the statement inaudible after being interrupted by uncontrollable laughter in the chamber)

4. "I really shouldn't be here tonight, but the Republicans went ahead and nominated Mitt Romney."

3. "I wish some more marginal pro athletes would come out and say they like to have gay sex so we can stop talking about my record."

2. "Vote the chancellor emergency powers so he can end these threats to the Republic."
