Not Oscar Mayer*: But I Love My (Anthony) Weiner

It doesn't get any better than REAL!

As retold on FDL:

Anthony Weiner just made a fiery speech in the middle of the House debate on repealing the insurance industry’s anti-trust exemption. Angered by a motion to recommit, he lashed out, saying “the Republican Party is a wholly owned subsidiary of the insurance industry!” While continuing on this theme, Republicans asked that the words be taken down, an attempt to rule Weiner’s remarks out of order and ban him from speaking on the floor for the rest of the day. Weiner then asked unanimous consent to substitute remarks, and after withdrawing the initial ones, said “Every single Republican I have ever met in my entire life is a wholly owned subsidiary of the insurance industry!”

I love that guy, really!!


* Oscar Mayer used to be pretty great, too, but it's been awhile so I can't speak in present tense terms.

No votes yet


... from interviewing Rep.
Himes last week that gives you an idea of what Rep. Weiner is really
like behind closed doors and when the cameras aren't on him:

Being almost as interested in advocacy as I am in getting
politicians' POVs, I had to mention that his position on single payer
is one of the reasons Rep. Weiner is one of the most popular Democratic
party members.

doesn't it!? So what if he gets no more AF1 rides, Rep. Weiner put it to Obama the way it needs to be put, straight up and not mincing of words.

Same qualities are what made my post of this video essential, no bullshit about the essential message!
