Had to see this coming. Democratic Representative Henry Waxman, tasked with the thankless duty of investigating government corruption and incompetence, comes up against the utterly non-responsive EPA Administrator, Stephen Johnson. Waxman was further aggravated when Republican Representative Darrell Issa goads him with specious objections. As a result, Waxman gives his gavel a workout and threatens to have Issa removed "physically". Issa shuts up and the proceedings move on.
By the way something, feckless republican leader John Boehner called on Waxman to apologize for his "abuse of power". After the thing about the Decemberists, this is the funniest thing I've heard all day.
