Weiner Employs 720-Point Font in 72-Hour Rule Fight
BY Nancy Scola | Thursday, March 17 2011
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) got the U.S. House of Representatives worked up this morning when he challenged House Republicans on whether a bill to defund NPR had been posted online for 72 hours before consideration, a point he drove home by waving around the giant poster featuring Speaker Boehner's quote on the topic that he carries around with him. Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX), presiding, pushed back by saying that the rules adopted by the House actually require three working days of public posting; indeed, dem seem to be the rules. More from the Hill on what went down, but let's just say, it's worth a watch.
