Outrage of the day

"I'm sure they [al Qaeda] are watching, and I'm glad they finally have a chance to see you, Mr. Addington, given your penchant for being unobtrusive." --Rep. Wm. Delahunt (D-Mass), spoken to Cheney Chief of Staff David Addington in a hearing broadcast by CSPAN

Their exchange, with more context, is at CBSnews and in the video below. According to FoxNews, Rep. Delahunt's explanation is:

Delahunt said he was just trying to express that he was glad to see Addington. Delahunt said he recalls saying "I," not "they," during the testimony – though the video, broadcast on C-SPAN, shows he was talking about Al Qaeda.
