Monkey see monkey do

Iowa House Democrats this morning left the Capitol in protest of two gun bills the Republican majority had planned to debate today. As of two o'clock, they were still--out to lunch?
I wonder where they learned this tactic? Is this where our "democracy" is headed? If I don't get my way I'm gonna' take my football and go home. I think it harms the Democrats, more than it helps them. What's your opinion?

Why did you put "democracy" in quotes?

Going to lunch is a "tactic?" Isn't that setting the bar rather low?

The first Republican president jumped out of a state house window to avoid a vote while serving in the Illinois Legislature. If he was still alive today, the present crop of conservatives in charge of the Republican Party would call Honest Abe a RINO.
