Thank you for pissing off John Mica.
The guy is obviously distracted by his own self-importance:

Florida Republican fumes at not having a chair in meeting, leads walk out

A Florida Republican, who is the ranking minority member of the Transportation Committee in the House of Representatives, stormed out of a meeting last week, leading other Republican members with him. An article today in Roll Call reports that he was angry because he was not seated properly during an orientation session.

Ben Pershing writes in this morning's "Heard on the Hill" column that Rep. John Mica was not seated at the head of the room with the committee's Democratic chairman James Oberstar (D-MN) and two guests during the meeting. Instead, he was offered a seat in the audience section set up in the room. The gathered representatives and their staffs were to hear basic introductory information about the committee's work and remarks by former U.S. Ambassador Felix Rohatyn and ex-Transportation Chairman Bud Shuster (R-PA).

Mica was angered that he was not given a seat at the head. He asked for a new chair, and while waiting outside the room for it to arrive, asked all the Republicans to quit the meeting. "I was not pleased with the arrangement to sort of exclude the ranking member at the first meeting," he told Roll Call.

One of the Republican members pulled from the meeting was Rep. Bill Shuster, son of the guest speaker of the same last name.

I've noticed this about anglo high-jinxs. I've seen it on many levels. When they conspire to black-ball someone, they act like they're incredibly clever. But, if they suspect someone is doing it to them, why, they either melt from the ostracism, or they act like self-important prima donas, just like Mica did.

1. Good riddance
The way they behaved for 12 years, they're lucky to even be in a meeting. I wouldn't let them in- and if they did get in, I wouldn't listen to a word they said.

2. Now let's see
when the repukes were in power, didn't they lock the Dems out of conferences where they were crafting the Medicare drug legislation--and let the drug lobbyists in? Didn't the pukes bring bills to a vote before the Dems had a chance to even read them? Didn't the pukes make Rep. John Conyers hold a meeting in a basement, and then kept holding votes so that the meeting was disrupted?

Seems to me that a seating problem is small potatoes.
