Lord Dykes: Fifty years ago, a former US Defence Secretary, whose name I have forgotten, said to one of his friends, "Listen, honey, I'm a politician. That means that when I'm not kissing babies I'm stealing their lollipops. Never forget it". [Hansard]
The noble Lord does an admirable job of kicking over the traces of this quote's origin, but it's worth noting that it actually comes from The Hunt for Red October.

The Hunt For Red October is up there with The Fog Of War and Hearts of Darkness as a great War documentary.
