Speaking of TVW…

"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."
