Capitol Crash: An Hour of Terror, An Hour Ago
The Capitol was shut down for an hour today (we would've put the siren out, but we were watching Allen and
Warner Webb [goddam are we out of it this morning] on Meet the Press -- because no, we aren't waking up early on Sunday to see George Wallace Lite argue with John Knox, Jr.) because, uh, someone ran a car into the barricade and walked in. Yeah, just some guy. Good to know security at the Capitol is still top-notch -- you know this shit wouldn't go down at the White House.
Did crazy guy say anything about being "late for a vote?" 'Cause if so, we totally know who it was.
Last we heard from the AP, the car ("light-colored SUV") was cordoned off and being searched. So -- any bored staffers out there snap a good picture of the CHAOS GRIPPING CONGRESS? Or baseball cap guy? Send 'em in.
