And now, I give you Illinois state Rep. Mike Bost (R-Murphysboro) in today's moment of something that is definitely not Zen.
A YouTube video of state Rep. Mike Bost, R-Murphysboro, angrily screaming and throwing a ream of paper into the air on the Illinois House floor the other day has garnered more than 21,000 views so far.
(Warning: Some of what Bost says in the video is incomprehensible, but sounds like what could be pretty high-level obscenity.)
At issue was Bost’s claim that the floor rules imposed by the Democrat-run House were preventing Republicans from properly serving their constituents. It’s a bit of inside baseball, but worth watching for an indication of how frayed tempers have become in the final days of the legislative session.
