"I think as a Republican, I'm supposed to love Fox News and hate MSNBC. Now, I'm going to tell you, I do hate MSNBC, but something just happened on Fox News that compelled me to come to the floor. They've run this diagram and it really is a, I think, blaspheming my good friend Pat Tiberi from Ohio and indicating that there are nine Republicans supporting a bill that will bail out unions. Well, that's nonsense and I don't know who the pin head and weenie is at Fox News that decided to put that story together. ... It's a good Tiberi bill and I don't know what they're doing at Fox News, but they should stop smoking it and get back to reporting the facts."
