Senate Grudge Match

I had a nice long laugh at this article when I read it this morning. Senators Specter and Feingold got pissy with each other yesterday...
Feingold announced he was walking out of the committee session, saying he objected to the meeting's location in a small room off the Senate floor with limited public access.

That brought an angry rebuke from committee Chairman Specter (R-Pa.), who shouted at Feingold, as the Wisconsin Democrat described it later.
The room was apparently too small for Feingold's ego. Portions of it were sticking out the door and into the hallway. Specter's ego was at its most bloated too...
"You are no more a protector of the Constitution than am I. I don't take second place to you on that subject or frankly on any subject. This is an open meeting. We have a great deal of business to conduct, and this is an appropriate forum. We have a quorum here, and if you want to leave, good riddance."

Feingold responded: "I enjoyed your lecture, too. See ya, Mr. Chairman."
These are our leaders, folks. This is the best we can do as a nation. The Senate is full of these self-important, arrogant gas bags who are more than willing to get into "I'm the protector of the Constitution" pissing matches. I am much more comfortable with the Constitution's safety when Arlen Specter's and Russ Feingold's grubby little hands are nowhere near it.

I say Feingold comes out of that closet where they had this argument and really shows his support for gay marriage by marrying Arlen Specter. Don't laugh. It could happen. The senators get a couple of quickie divorces in Vegas, hop a plane to Hawaii where it is the law of the land, and then it's one big lei on the honeymoon!

Thank you for the mental image that I just got of Feingold and Specter making out.
