Origin of "Most dangerous place is between Schumer and a camera"

Today's New York Post editorial follows up on its story from the Democratic National Convention, where Senator Chuck Schumer took the microphone away from Governor David Paterson. Truly, the most dangerous place in the world.

Who first said that?

Bob Dole said this about then-Rep. Schumer in 1995. However, Dole didn't invent the quip.

Texas Senator Phil Gramm (the "nation of whiners" guy) was long known for his "grammstanding" for the media and taking credit for things he had nothing to do with.

By at least 1984, the most dangerous place to be in Washington was between Phil Gramm and a tv camera.
