Al Franken is the shit
Franken Cuts Lieberman Off, Won't Let Him Finish Floor Speech (VIDEO)
In a fun bit of drama on the Senate floor today, Sen. Al Franken cut off Sen. Joe Lieberman during a speech, angering Lieberman's good friend Sen. John McCain.
Here's what happened; Lieberman was giving a ten-minute speech on health care reform. Franken, who was presiding over the Senate, cut him off when his ten minutes were up. When Lieberman requested unanimous consent for an extra few minutes to finish his speech, Franken, in his capacity as a senator from Minnesota, objected. And, in his capacity as presiding officer, Franken honored the objection.
After a brief moment of tension, Lieberman laughed and said he didn't take it personally, and requested that the rest of his speech be put in the record.
Then McCain took the floor to defend his friend, saying he'd never seen anything like it.
and then this
I find myself really just not caring about what the people in charge of my country are doing. and that scares the shit out of me.
Ive never really been one for politics, too much smoke being blown, no way to really know the truth, just have to believe what you are told, and if you decide to look elsewhere for facts you never know if they are scewed either....
