Florida Congresscritter Will Now Be Famous For Eating Ear Crud On C-Span


If, like Yr Wonkette, you aren't from Florida, chances are pretty good that the name and title "Congressman Joe Garcia (D-Florida)" do not instantly make anything spring to mind. We had to go to the Source of All Internet Truth ourselves, and we actually did have a brief moment of recognition near the middle of the piece when we saw that his chief of staff/ campaign manager had pleaded guilty in 2013 to an attempted absentee vote-registration scam in the 2012 primary, which didn't exactly rise to National Outrage, but did get cited by some wingnuts as an excellent reason for Voter ID laws (which rather misses the "absentee" part). But now, Rep. Garcia has an actual achievement to his name: He is The Guy Who Picked His Ear On C-SPAN And Ate What He Found. God Bless You, Mr. Garcia.

Gawker brings us both the video:

Take your pick.

Actually, it's a perfectly normal primate behavior, though usually you want to save that sort of thing for being stuck in traffic, where nobody can see you. Can't imagine anyone liking the taste, though, said Yr. Dok Zoom, on the basis of his sole 3rd-grade experiment with the practice.

Rep. Garcia is actually in pretty good company, as former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was also caught on camera having a little taste of Eau de Earcanal in 2007:

We're rather impressed with the self-assured Rudd's direct ear-to-mouth technique, although from a consumer perspective there's also something to be said for Garcia's careful visual inspection of the sample before ingesting it.

We now return you to the last six rows of the schoolbus on a field trip.

Corey Stewart, the Minnesota transplant to Virginia who's made protecting "Confederate Heritage" a top issue in his campaign for the US Senate, accused a nosy New York Times reporter of breaking into the apartment of one of his aides. It's a terrific accusation, because while there's no evidence at all and the story makes no damn sense, that doesn't matter at all to people who'd vote for Corey Stewart. They already hate the evil media and know those nasty reporters are capable of all the depravity in the world.

Hey, remember that hilarious time when Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy got caught on tape joking that LOL, Donald Trump and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher were totally on Putin's payroll? WaPo got the goods:

"There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump," McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016 exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy's assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

It's funny 'cause it's true! ALLEGEDLY. Earlier this month, Congressman Lubyanka Rohrabacher told Fox reporter Elex Michaelson that DNC hack was obviously an inside job.
