When The Speaker of the House stood up and began ripping up the President’s State of the Union Address, it was more than just an act of colossal ignorance and immensely bad behavior. She ripped up an official document that is supposed to be entered into the Congressional Record. In other words, the speech that the President handed her was not hers to do with as she saw fit. It was the property of the people of the United States. For that reason alone, she should be censured by her colleagues and removed from her position as Speaker. She humiliated herself and her Party.
Diamond and Silk posted on twitter a poignant example of what else she tore up in her petulant disregard for common decency.
