Republicans near, far (and increasingly far-out) seem to be losing it.
Locally, state Sen. Bill Rabon's delivered a profane, arrogant, and condescending tirade against his constituents, General Assembly "colleagues," the Governor, and the state's first lady--basically everyone except state Sen. Bill Rabon.
In Washington (we think), Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) re-appeared on Monday after a mysterious and unexplained absence, claiming that part of it was a game of hide-and-seek with the media.
Last night, just prior to the President's state of the union speech, Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX) tweeted,
On floor of house waitin on "Kommandant-In-Chef"...the Socialistic dictator who's been feeding US a line or is it "A-Lying?"And following the speech, Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) menaced a reporter, yelling
Let me be clear to you: If you ever do that to me again, I'll throw you off this f***ing balcony.After the reporter attempted to reply, the aptly-named Rep. Grimm continued
No, no. You're not man enough, you're not man enough. I'll break you in half, like a boy.
At least they're not threatening to blow up the economy...this week.
