    I guess reading the Constitution didn't help much. :lol:

    Did I have a thread on this? Where? This is different from the House violating their own house rules, this is the GOP not following the Constitution. :lol:

    I'm sure you can see the irony and humor in this. The irony part being not only did the GOP read the Constitution on the floor but they failed to follow it from the first vote that took place. The humor part being not only were the two representatives taking a "victory lap" but now they have to go ask Nancy Pelosi of all people to not make them look even more moronic. :lol:

    The GOP brought this upon themselves though.

    If they didn't read the Constitution out loud and not have these two doing a "victory lap" when they were suppose to be sworn in then this probably would of barely made a mention.

    Of course it isn't they are not demoncrats.

    Technically they should be charged with a crime or at least ethics violations.

    The funniest thing to me is that they watched the swearing-in on television from the Capitol Visitors Center with their hands raised. :lol:

    Did they really think this would count?? God help us all!! What a couple of bozos.
