Well, another senator rose and said {as they always do} ‘Does the gentleman yield?’ They always say that – least they call each other ‘gentleman’ in there. But the tone they put on the word, it would sound more appropriate if they came right out and said ‘Would the coyote from Maine yield?’ ’cause that’s about the way it sounds. Well, then, the other senator says ‘I yield’ (for if he don’t the other guy’ll keep on talking anyhow). So the coyote from Maine says ‘I yield to…the polecat from Oregon!’
