You can’t make this shit up

Think Progress makes a great catch on C-SPAN this morning: Someone calls in while Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) is answering the lines, practically in tears because Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) missed this morning’s procedural vote on health care.

He was apparently concerned that — after following Sen. Tom Coburn’s (R-OK) instructions to pray that someone couldn’t make a manager’s amendment vote Sunday night — his prayers for Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV) to die struck the wrong senator.

This guy calls in all the time, I have heard him before. He is hilarious.

Notice the lack of surprise on the whole “praying for someone to die” concept on the Senator. Kinda chilling or regular mode of operation, isn’t it?

J-

I think this is a hoax, that guy calls in all the time, and he is usually rattling the cage of Republicant’s. Not sure if he actually called in or rigged the video, but the crying was fantastic.
