Monkey Court

During the House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing on the Affordable Care Act federal exchange website on Thursday morning (10-24-13) , Representative Frank Pallone Jr. (D-NJ) severely castigated Representative Joe Barton (R-TX) for inaccurately describing a privacy requirement in the law, eventually calling the entire hearing a “monkey court.”

Hi-five Mr. Pallone.

Dem Bums

Don Yelton, GOP Precinct Chair resigned after this Daily Show interview.

“Yes, he has resigned,” said Nathan West, a spokesman for the Buncombe County Republican Party. The party had asked for Don Yelton’s resignation in direct response to the interview, West said.  “Mr. Yelton’s comments are offensive, uninformed, and unacceptable of any member within the Republican Party,” the statement read. “In no way are his comments representative of the local or state Republican Party.”
