I was wondering about that myself

Concerning Lurch cursing out one of his Secret Service protectors, some email to The Corner:
A lot of emails like this in the in-box:
I'm asking myself what I would say to a man who has pledged to lay down his life for me, to take a bullet for me, if he accidentally knocks me down on a ski slope *while* trying his best to protect me.

I think that I say: "Don't worry about it. You're doing your job. I appreciate it."

And to onlookers: "Got tangled up with my guardian angels up there and went down. We need more practice at this."

But: "I don't fall. That blankety-blank knocked me down"?
They obviously fail to appreciate the hauteur of Senator "Do you know who I am?" But then, so do I.
