On September 28, 2013 Rep. Lois Frankel of Florida asked for and was granted permission to address the United States House of Representatives for one minute regarding the looming government shutdown and the utter stupidity and foolishness of Republican antics in Congress.
“Mr. Speaker, with all due respect to my friends on the other side of the aisle, this shutdown talk has evolved to ridiculousness.
To quote Dr. Seuss:
When beetles fight these battles in a bottle with their paddles
And the bottle’s on a poodle and the poodle’s eating noodles …..
They call this a muddle puddle tweetle poodle beetle noodle bottle paddle battle.
Mr. Speaker, it’s time to work together and stop these beetles. I mean, stop the battle”, said Rep. Lois Frankel (source: Congressional Record http://thomas.loc.gov).
Rep. Lois Frankel serve on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
