When the Judiciary Committee returned from a break in the confirmation hearings of Judge Sonia Sotomayor, Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) didn’t have a working microphone.

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), who has been in the Senate just over a week, said that his microphone was working and suggested they trade places.

To the surprise of many, Leahy actually traveled down the dais to use Franken’s microphone. Franken, meanwhile, stood behind the the chairman’s chair — and said, “I shouldn’t do this” and sat down.

To which Sessions said, “That’s the quickest rise of any senator in history.”
