It looks like democrats are having trouble enjoying the finer things in life, judging by this tweet from Congressman Ted Deutch:
This came about in the lead-up to the senate’s votes on several gun control practices, all of which have been shot down so far (pun not intended). In the mounting tension of both the talks and the protests happening outside, it’s refreshing to see some good, old-fashioned petty social media bickering between the two parties.
While the Dems are all locked up with these protests, it looks like the conservatives are treating this more like any other afternoon. Perhaps it’s for the best that they can chill out and have a drink and a cigar against the backdrop of some of the fiercest debates in recent memory. It reminds one of the attitude that investment bankers would show when walking to work through hordes of Occupy Wall Street protesters a few years back.
If a U.S. congressman can take a nice booze and cigar break, then I don’t see why I can’t do the same thing around here every now and then.
(Editor’s Note: Fuck you, Intern. Get back to work.).
UPDATE 5:40 p.m.: The democratic sit-in has ended, with nothing having been accomplished. Sounds about right.
