Lefty panties are in a bunch because the Republicans used an obscure, but valid, rule to silence the irritating drone of someone.
Here's the thing.
I've been saying, for a long time, that sooner or later the Republicans were going to have to be just as rude as the Democrats often are to effectively fight back.
The peaceful Tea Party rallies where the location was left cleaner afterwards than before was how we wanted to cause change.
Look where that got us?
If being raging assholes is how it must be done, then it is how it will be done.
That's how manners works.
You don't get to be an asshole to someone and expect them to be nice back to you for very long.
