Congressional fight club! | Sheneman –



Watch out for folding chairs.Drew Sheneman
Not since the vicious caning of Senator Charles Sumner by Rep. Preston Brooks in 1856 has the United States Congress been ready to rumble. Actually, that’s not true. There are plenty of incidents of politician on politician violence in the history of America’s greatest deliberative body. There’s even a book about it. This past Tuesday there were two separate, independent incidents that almost saw dudes in suits throw down for no good reason.
The first involved former speaker Kevin McCarthy and fellow Republican Rep. Tim Burchett. Burchett accosted McCarthy during a hallway interview and loudly accused him of throwing an elbow into his kidneys. Burchett was one of the malcontents who joined with Matt Gaetz to oust McCarthy. McCarthy claims he was simply walking by Burchett in a crowded hallway and I believe him, mostly because there’s no way Kevin McCarthy knows where the kidneys are located, much less how to deliver a clean shot to them.
