How utterly horked up is Congress, now that the enviro-wackos have taken charge? In this clip from C-SPAN Rep. Ted Poe of Texas revels in the opportunity to explain, to the obvious amusement of Rep. Tom Tancredo who is seated behind him. This brings up an interesting possibility: if members of Congress broke a CFL light bulb in chambers, would they be required to evacuate the room and engage in the same hazardous waste management mitigation strategies that the Environmental Protection Agency requires of us? It would a least stop Congress from mandating yet another idiotic rule that tells Americans what kind of toilet they can use, what light bulbs they are allowed to have, and whether they can cut the tag off of a mattress.
