Congressman Murtha used to do this sort of stuff in whispers in a corner on the House floor:
During a series of House votes Thursday, Murtha walked to the chamber’s Republican side to confront Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., a 43-year-old FBI former agent. Earlier this month, Rogers had tried unsuccessfully to strike a Murtha earmark from an intelligence spending bill. The item would restore $23 million for the National Drug Intelligence Center, a facility in Murtha’s Pennsylvania district that some Republicans say is unneeded.
Maybe once a man reaches a certain age, he just doesn’t care who sees or hears it? Or perhaps now that everyone has seen worse, there is no need to beat around the bush.
