NY Rep Anthony Weiner says what we've all been thinking.

In case you're wondering, here is the specific issue which brought about the above fiery condemnation.

He's certainly passionate. I have no idea the merits of what they are discussing so I don't have any comment on the content. However, for a democrat (or politicians) to accuse a republican of using procedure to obscure his vote, delay his vote, or whatever is a bit ironic when it was procedural rules that allowed 'reconciliation' of the health care bill allowing certain democrats to get away with having to vote again on health care. It seems to me that every politician uses procedure when it benefits them, and decries it when it doesn't. One one issue a filibuster is a noble and triumphant stand, on another they paint a filibuster as cowardly procedural tricks. I don't know what the bill is, but it does strike me as procedure being upsetting because it doesn't favor him. I don't know.

Fair enough.

Thanks for the article post. Adds some context to the speech. Egads, politics can be an absolute contradictory nightmare sometimes.
