1. That's outrageous. - Three paragraphs from the story:
WASHINGTON House Republicans' reading of the Constitution was interrupted Thursday by a woman who shouted "except Obama, except Obama" to the venerable document's words on a U.S. citizen's eligibility to be president.

Just as Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J., was reading "no person, except a natural-born citizen, or a citizen of the United States" is eligible for the presidency, a woman in the visitor's gallery yelled out that it did not apply to President Barack Obama.

Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, who was presiding over the House, banged the gavel and halted the proceedings, warning that such action from members of the public was a violation of House rules. The woman was quickly removed by Capitol police.

11. crap, I forgot all about that one! 140 hrs of testimony about Clinton's Christmas cards!
http://www.boston.com/news/nation/washington/articles/2... /

WASHINGTON -- Back in the mid-1990s, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, aggressively delving into alleged misconduct by the Clinton administration, logged 140 hours of sworn testimony into whether former president Bill Clinton had used the White House Christmas card list to identify potential Democratic donors.

12. I hope that the American people are sufficiently fed up with politics as usual
that they will rise up in disgust if such stuff is pulled again by repukes bent on bringing down a popular president. I hope they will demand that legislators spend their time solving some of the problems of our society today...
