My Seven-Year-Olds Aren't This Childish

Seriously, WTF?

Republicans Feel Locked Out Again — Literally This Time

House Republicans have complained all year that Democrats have locked them out of the legislative process.

On Tuesday, those complaints took a turn from figurative to literal.

A spokesman for House Oversight and Government Reform ranking member Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Democrats changed the lock on the door from the GOP’s meeting room to the main committee chamber, and informed Republicans that Democrats would retain the only set of keys.

Republicans say the move was retaliation for a behind-the-scenes video they shot that showed committee Democrats leaving their meeting room through a back door 30 minutes after they canceled a hearing that the majority said conflicted with Members’ schedules.

Allow me to translate:

You caught us on tape being the corrupt, lowlife chickenshits that we are, so we're going to lock you in a room to prevent it from happening again.

Nah nah-nah goo-goo.

May God give us the strength to make it through the 2010 elections peaceably and without a shot fired.
