I hate meetings and town halls, especially in the evening when I want to be grilling or baking and quaffing a good bottle of (still lightly taxed) California central coast wine and rough-housing with the kids, but God bless the Tea Partiers and others who show up to speak their mind as citizens to Congresscritters. And I'd like to buy an expensive steak dinner for the do-ragged dude in this YouTube clip
who totally schools an idiot Republican
congressman (I'm in danger of repeating myself here) about the Constitution. Notice this fellow's complete command of the text of Article I, Section I, and of the First Amendment, and the embarrassing ignorance of the Congressman, and the necessity to shut down the speaker at the end before the embarrassment turns into a complete rout.
Dude--whoever you are, I salute you. I think we've just found the next Joe the Plumber.
UPDATE: Michelle Malkin passes along the strong possibility that the dude I've offered dinner to is a nutty 9/11 Truther
. Oh dear; I hope not. Could make for an awkward dinner. On the other hand, it makes LoBiondo out to be even more pathetic and useless.
UPDATE 2: I mean, maybe I should have known better. If you really want to make a congresscritter squirm, ask them to discuss the meaning and boundaries of Article I, Section 8. Right?
