Well, first you'd have to have an unrepentent repeat congressional

No one is being prosecuted for laughing.
 
That's like saying Sirhan Sirhan was arrested for firing a pistol.

Wow. It's hard to believe y'all are defending this.
 
Or, rather, it should be hard to believe, but it's unfortunately very easy to believe.

You are mistaking people for having an ounce of pride. There's very different emotions out there today than pride.
 
Try prejudice.
