It's My Gavel And I'm Taking It And Going Home

Click the link to watch James Sensenbrenner abruptly bring to an end a committee meeting about Patriot Act renewal and leave. Sensenbrenner was asked to yield the floor several times but would not. I don't have a transcript yet, but I'm pretty sure this was close to his response, "No Sir, I will not yield the floor, I demand to be a cocksucker." or something like that. He then gaveled the meeting closed and walked out the door.

C-Span kept the cameras running, and Jerrold Nadler D-NY continues to lecture the rest of the committee. Its pretty good stuff. He is followed by James Zogby who hits it out of the park. In case you don't want to listen to that blowhard Sensenbrenner, Nadler starts at 4:34 into the video and Zogby goes on at 6:11

Many shouts out to DEMbloggers for hosting this video.

Come on. Leave the gavel here. I'll bring it to school tomorrow and give it back.
