Like overgrown spoiled children, a lot of protesters are trying these days to disrupt Congress by yelling, crying and acting out. It’s been interesting to see how quickly the Republican Congress members have adapted to these tantrums.
For instance, a Senator will ask Judge Brett Kavanaugh a serious question about Constitutional issues, and Kavanaugh will get about two sentences into a thoughtful answer, and then a lot of idiotic yelling will break out. Instead of letting it detail their conversation, the adults simply stop talking for a moment while security drags the nuisance from the room and off to the big playpen with iron bars for a well-deserved “time-out.” Watching the hearings now reminds me of watching two parents who’ve learned to patiently time their conversations so that their words fall into the brief pauses between the screams of their terrible two-year-old’s tantrums.
That’s almost amusing, but this was downright hilarious. Before going into politics, Missouri Republican Rep. Billy Long had a real job as an award-winning auctioneer. When a protester started yelling during the hearings into social media bias (this was a rightwing protester, sadly adopting the left’s childish tactics), Long responded by drowning her out with his triple-time auctioneer’s spiel. Talk about fighting fire with fire…or in this case, gibberish with gibberish! That protester should have known that nobody wins a battle of baffling blather with a man who spent 30 years as an auctioneer and the last seven years in Congress.
