Testy, testy, testy

A reporter for Politico was questioning Rahm Emanuel about ethics legislation which is still stalled in Congress:
Before a Democratic caucus meeting, a Politico reporter asked House Democratic Caucus Chairman Rahm Emanuel of Illinois about the language of the bill's main provisions. After Emanuel demurred on the specifics, this reporter asked — in the effort for openness and disclosure — if a journalist could sit in to hear debate on the language.

"Why don't you go f—- yourself?" Emanuel replied, as he entered a men's room in the Capitol basement.
Ah, open government and civility ... bang, shot right in the head. Yup, these Dems are soooo much better than the Reps.

And our buddy David Obey keeps popping out the gems. Speaking about a meeting in which he dressed down Dennis Kucinich for "demogoging" an issue, Obey said:
“The issue was whether the caucus was given accurate information, and Dennis was giving this inaccurate information about the committee's work product," Obey said. “This isn't the first time that Dennis has twisted the facts. I didn't have time for him.”
He also had some kind words for both Reps. Diane E. Watson and Maxine Waters, two California Democrats on the committee:
Watson, Obey said, was “clueless” that he had already addressed Kucinich’s concerns in another meeting.

“And as for Maxine Waters,” he continued, “even I could win a charm school award against her!”
Heh...

Well, one thing you can say for the Democrats in Congress - while they may not be getting much done, they sure are entertaining.

Is there anything not to loathe about the political class?

At least the Republicans would say "Go F—- yourself, please."

*sigh*

Way to raise the level of debate, Democrats... Way to go...
