A Liberal Loses His Mind on the House Floor

Hilarious. Here's Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) having a four-year-old's temper tantrum against Republicans on the House floor. Oh boo-hoo. Does anybody think this guy must have been taunted as "Whiner-Weiner" when he was in about the fourth grade (not that I support taunting of 10-year-olds, but come on--there is certain behavior that is just patently absurd. Actually, this guy was probably one of those kids you see in the grocery store, with the parent standing over him, ringing their hands, impotently pleading with the child to stop, and you think, "I would sure as shit know what to do about that!")? "The gentleman will sit," he yells at his Republican colleague. I don't use that tone even with my dog.

Watching him this morning reminded me of a two-year old throwing a fit.
He was probably stamping his feet, too.

Good grief...

Hey! Right or wrong, it's great to see anyone act as if governing is more than an incidental bore between vacations.

Well, Anon, I guess I would agree, he is quite entertaining.

So, the narrative of "those bad, mean old Republicans" is still being played. Sigh. If every Democrat toes the party line, won't they have enough votes to pass their stinkin' stuff themselves?

Even Rahmbo agrees that Little Anthony's got the right surname.

Hilarious.

I forgot to mention his wife, get ready, swallow your adult beverage:

Huma Weiner

I'm not making that up.

This could work. Remember the Hogg sisters of Texas, Ima and Ura?

Ima Weiner, Ura Weiner, Hooza Weiner . . . I like it.
