The Deaf Claque

Because they’re worth clapping for…probably…

Them’s fightin’ words: Passion in da’ House! (Video)

Rep. Pete Stark from California was not too happy with Bush’s veto of SCHIP. Stark comes down on the President pretty hard in this one, prompting Speaker Pelosi to repeat,

“Members are reminded not to refer to the President in any personal way.”

Strong words, Madam Speaker. Not to rag on Pelosi too much though, it’s her job. Her comments next to Stark’s just seemed to highlight the absurd mix of extremes in Congress with respect to speech in general. Maybe it’s a good thing though: the voice of rationality, or at least the voice of rote reminders, keeping fiery passions in check.
