"This is Bullshit!" The Aborted Mine Safety Hearing

When I reported last week about the about Congressman Charlie Norwood shutting off a hearing on mine safety before a second round of questions, I somehow missed the link to a video of the hearing on Mine Safety Watch

It's an epic battle between one of the best Congressmen (George Miller D-CA) vs. one of the worst, (Charlie Norwood R-GA).


Miller, after Norwood told him there would be no second round of questions: "This is bullshit!"

Norwood's response: "When you get in charge, you get to run the damn thing."

List to the whole thing if you have time. But if you just want the fireworks, fast-forward to 1:22:40.
