Best line of the campaign so far

I thought all the candidates with the exception of Ron Paul were impressive tonight in the Republican presidential candidates’ debate in Orlando tonight, and Rudy Giuliani undeniably shone (although an exception for Giuliani must be made with respect to the segment that Paul notes below). However, Senator McCain seemed to me to get in the best line of the campaign so far:

“In case you missed it, a few days ago Senator Clinton tried to spend one million dollars on the Woodstock concert museum. Now, my friends, I wasn’t there. I’m sure it was a cultural and pharmaceutical event. I was tied up at the time.”

That line deserves an entry in Bartlett’s. Quoted with an assist from NRO’s Campaign Spot, video via Instapundit.
