Congressional partisan politics reached a new low at around 11:10 last night when Republicans walked out of the House en masse after a bizarre voting snafu that appeared as if the Democrats were trying to rig a vote on Agricultural spending. Shouts of “shame!” from Republicans sparked off a chaotic shouting match between both sides – that resulted in the room mics being turned down until a re-vote was ordered – at which point the Republicans walked out. Then the Democrats had the disaster striken from the official record.
Do you think they’ll be talking this one up on the pundit circuit on Sunday? Hmmm? Just maybe. I think the conversation should be “What’s next for our esteemed representatives?”
Might I suggest a Taiwan-style cage-match?
