If you saw the video of the tragedy that played itself out today on Capitol Hill you will know why.
It ended tragically for that lady who was getting her NASCAR on, and Congress and all the people in Washington were terrified as that surreal scene played like a Hollywood movie.
This is not a good time to go speeding through DC streets close to the Capitol. Nerves are frayed and folks are on edge. You can blame the angst on the recent shooting at the naval facility and the wingnuts holding the country hostage from their DC lair. Maybe today while they huddled like cowards they had a "come to Jesus moment. "
Anyway, I will reserve my comments about the actions of that woman today and that of the Capitol Police until I hear more about the story.
Still, there are a couple of things that I do know: She was not armed, and there was a one year old child in her car.
Another thing I know is this: A GOP representative showed the true nature of his party by sending out a tweet about the tragedy and blaming it (the tragedy) on the president. I think he sent his tweets before the shots stopped.
"Griffin posted his message after several people on Twitter commented about his original tweet, sent moments after shots were fired and which has since been deleted. "Stop the violent rhetoric President Obama, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. "#Disgusting,"' [Source]
No congressman, what is "disgusting" is that you continue to get paid and go on with your destructive life, while the men and women who protect your sorry ass have to worry about their checks.
