This Is How We Do It In Jersey
I have a new favorite Republican politician for at least the next 10 minutes. He’s Congressman Frank LoBiondo of New Jersey. Welcome to the blog, Frank.
Congressman Frank got a little fed up with the dicking around that some of his colleagues did in regards to the federal aid promised to the people in Congressman Frank’s home district who got slugged by superstorm Sandy. So, in the great traditions of the House Of Representatives, Congressman Frank apparently went hailin’ like the fireworks over little Eden tonight.
“And yes I’m angry, you’re changing the rules for hundreds of thousands of people in the middle of the game. Florida, good luck with no more hurricanes, California, congratulations, did you get rid of the Andreas fault? The Mississippi is in a drought, you think you’re not going to flood again? Who are you going to come to when you have these things? We need this, we need this now. Do the right thing as we have always done for you. Thank you.”
And then he flipped them all off, slammed a Remy, played a little Frank on the jukebox, and swaggered out of the joint, flipping a quarter in one hand.
