    House Stenographer Seizes Microphone In Bizarre Rant

    House Stenographer Seizes Microphone In Bizarre Rant : The Two-Way : NPR

    "He will not be mocked," the stenographer, later identified as Dianne Reidy, yelled into the microphone at the chamber's rostrum. "The greatest deception here is that this is not one nation under God. It never was. It would not have been. The Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons. They go against God."



    The mic was dead apparently, but you can still see her in the video. Just when you thought you've seen enough craziness in Congress, this happens. I guess it's a fitting tribute.

    The video is great. She very calmly walks up, looks around, and just goes off. I'm surprised she didn't take her shoe off and bang it on the podium.

    If my job was to record everything said by those lunatics in the house, I'd probably go crazy too. Poor lady, hope she's ok.

    No - I actually feel bad for her.

    Congress is full of a bunch of invalids who behave like children. That poor woman is supposed to listen to ALL OF IT and write it all down - day in and day out?

    That's enough to drive anyone over the edge.

    I'm being serious - how much BS can a person take without flipping out?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    It's a good point. This position should come with hazard pay on par with frigging special forces.

    you don't know what it was like... You weren't there...

    Sure, totally bring sympathy and empathy into it while I was imagining her at the booby hatch having a nice conversation with a jesus about how she got there. let us bring some al queda prisoners in, or maybe some rapists or child molestors. Why torture good citizens with having to listen to congress prattle on and transcribe their insanity.

    c'mon rocket, let's not mock a genuine mental health issue
    that it was on the congressional floor is no doubt enticing, but it is still bad form to make fun of the mentally ill
