Weiner calls out GOP

We love Great Britain's Parliament. We've said it before, our Congress shows its immaturity with its inability to have real back and forth debate actually on the floor. Today, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) did his part to bring a little House of Commons flair to CSPAN.

"You gotta love these Republicans," Weiner said. "I mean, you guys have chutzpah. The Republican Party is a wholly owned subsidiary of insurance companies."

One of Weiner's Republican colleagues asked that the Democrat's words be stricken from the record because they were inappropriate for debate. Weiner's comeback: I'd be glad to -- I'll just substitute other words.

Those other words?

Make no mistake about it, every single Republican I have ever met in my entire life is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the insurance industry.

Hey now, I is a Republican, and don't nobody own me !!! Weiner looks like one of the kids with the big mouth that ended up getting his ass kicked after class..
