"Where's the man who said unlimited corporate money was speech? Where's the man who voted against equal pay for women? I don't even know who you are anymore."

The host then put an even finer point on the treachery: "This is the worst betrayal since Benedict Arnold teamed up with Judas to stab Caesar right in the croutons."
