“I will expect a level of decorum appropriate for being delivered into someone’s living room.”
That’s Rep. Ross Hunter a few minutes ago, warning the standing-room-only crowd — both fans and foes — at a NASCAR speedway hearing that they’re on live TV.
Here are some samples from the testimony of Bremerton’s Jacob Metcalf this morning:
“…the most obscene piece of pork-filled corporate welfare…horrible precedent…ponzi scheme…frivolous entertainment…radical path…questionable lobbying activity…an army of astroturf followers and hired-gun lawyers…dangerous misadventures…”
Still, Metcalf showed some restraint. We noticed that in his written remarks, he’d crossed “bastard” out of the phrase “bastard child of corporate greed.”
