Alright, before I get into the post, I want to be upfront and state this is not a post about Republicans or Democrats. It is just merely a funny incident that happened here in Texas earlier this week.

It appears that Democrats have finally heard enough about the redistricting map and ended up losing the fight. During Rep. Phil King's argument for the new boundaries...<blockquote><font class="small">Quote Houston Chronicle:</font><hr>about 30 Democrats in the gallery donned white socks as hand puppets to mock King. Every time he spoke, the little white mouths flapped. <hr /></blockquote>

I think I would have cracked up if I was there and saw this happening. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

If you wanna read the whole story here is the article (http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/topstory2/1983867).

I would have loved to see those antics also. That had to be pretty funny. My favorite politician is Jim Traficant. The congressman from Ohio who just couldn't keep his mouth shut. Here is a copy of his letter from prison. http://www.rense.com/general38/prison.htm

I think 10.

Traficant was from Youngstown where organized crime is king. The only bright spot in Youngstown in the last 30 years was the Phar-Mor drugstore chain which started there and was headquartered there. Turns out it was run by a bunch of crooks too /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif. Chain went bankrupt, crooks went to jail.

Gotta admit though, Traficant was one hilarious dude.

I just liked him. When I feel like an idiot for some reason or another, I just think about Traficant and know there is a bigger idiot than me. LoL
