but not some boring policy (bleep),

they cooked up a loophole to push last call to 4:00 a.m.

Not for everybody, though.

Just for DNC delegates.

Good times.

I have two beers.

BOTH:Two beers.

Double up on the privilege.

WOOD: Man, these Democrats is getting tore up

till 4:00 in the morning and we were getting stuff done,

according to my main man, Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey.

You do a lot of networking.

For example, someonejust bought me this beer,

and I'm gonna networkwith that person.

Okay, let's role-play.

-You be you.-Okay.

And I'll be another senator.

I want to be a Republicanfrom Alaska.

is hypocritical as hell, man,

you know what I mean?

WOOD:I understand.
