Your Congress At Work

This video has been all over the Internet for a while now, and I'm probably the only person who hasn't posted it yet. Well, it's time to get on the bandwagon, I guess. The only difference between the previous posts you've seen and mine is the full explanation of the clip below.

As I noted in my comment to Mike's blog (he posted this yesterday), nobody has yet actually noted that the two babies in this video are actually Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who have known each other much longer than anyone realizes, and are still acting like infants and talking nonsense past each other. The only difference is that they're not smiling and laughing any more.

And neither am I. And neither should you.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

Being the linguist you are I guess you understand 'congress speak'.

Shame on you -- denigrating those two sweet infants with those horrid monikers!! :)

I was just down in the Richmond area, and I can tell you Eric Cantor is waaaayyyyy out of touch, even with his constituents. Repubs joined the wrong party. I think this "tea" is too strong for them!
