on the Uptake. A.hole State Sen Mike Parry Bristles At Laughter Directed At Republicans

wow.. this guy is such a jerk.
The hearing was about collective bargaining agreements with two of the state’s unions. Republicans have tried to outlaw unions for Minnesota employees.
Minnesota State Senator Mike Parry (R-Waseca), threatens to clear the room when laughter erupts over a fellow Republican’s comment that the intent of a hearing was to “treat people fairly.”
Senator Parry, who is running for Congress and will not be serving in next year’s legislature then is told by a Representative Leon Lillie (DFL-North St. Paul) “it’s probably a blessing that you’re down to your last three meetings.”
The room again erupts in laughter and Senator Perry calls an abrupt 10 minute recess to the hearing.

3. It has been my experience that people who don't have a sense of humor
usually aren't very bright either.
If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.--Paul Wellstone
