House Debates Touching Itself
A Wonkette operative writes in with an eyewitness account of House debate over an amendment admonishing the 9th Circuit Court for its decision that upheld a school's ability to administer a sex survey to kids. But according to our operative, the Congressmen on the floor may be wagging more than their fingers:
Tim Murphy -- a Republican from Pennsylvania -- was just quoting the survey and saying things like "I touch my private parts too much," "I think about touching other people's private parts too much," and "I wash myself because I feel dirty inside."Right. Usually House members only admit that stuff directly to Brian Lamb.
It was a series of brave admissions by him, especially in front of a national audience.
