    Congressional stenographer loses it, is dragged off House floor

    Wow. Have you guys heard this? She is legitimately crazy.

    Dianne Reidy, a Congressional staffer from Long Island, went into a zany rant about Freemasons and the Constitution before being dragged off from the House floor by officers.

    If you have ever seen "Orange is the New Black" on Netflix she sounds like Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett.

    Fox have already quoted a minister complaining about her outburst being caused by being religiously persecuted... Oh dear.

    She said that she plans to come back next week to work. Personally, I would ensure she had at least a two week or longer vacation, whether she wants it or not. This seems like a mental breakdown, whatever she or her husband want to attribute it to. At the very least, she is stressed out and needs a break. What she said didn't even make a whole lot of sense, and neither her nor her husband seem to notice.

    Given the amount of fresh but somehow boring BS she has to record, I'm not surprised she lost it.

    I saw it on C-Span, but couldn't hear what she said, only her getting taken off the from the Clerks Desk and led away as she resisted.

    I looked at my wife and said "WTF just happened? I've never seen anything like that before."

    And amazingly her nonsense was better thought out than all the other nonsense that goes on in those halls everyday.

    No it wasn't. Not even close.

    I'm not thrilled with the job our Congress has been doing, especially not these past few weeks, but she was raving nonsense. At least their BS is legitimately about our country and its operation, even if it is useless in actually getting the job done. Hers was just out there.

    The perfect representative for the tea party--maybe they will all go off their rockers and be dragged off just like her...
