This is video of a recnt town hall meeting. The video is kind of long, but worth the 10 minutes to watch. The Congressman's attitutde just defies description.
"Whether you think I'm a liar or not, I still want to get your input -- and I'll make up how I'm gonna lie about it after i get it."
"What good is a new job if you don't have the healthcare to go with it?"
Here's a Huffpo link for the libs
And a conservative link

Now see when I brought up inappropriate levity or language while conducting their "official duties" previously I was basically told I was being uptight...
An ill timed joke or an inappropriate colloquialism...is there a difference?

Raintree - IMO the language an ordinary citizen chooses to use (an elderly one at that) should not dictate the language the elected official chooses. The man made that comment to elicit a response from the crowd which they gave him. The Congressmen didn't have to respond in kind. I would like to hope that those I have voted for would be above that.
