Chris Shays, at yesterday's House Oversight Committee's review of Lehman Brothers, threw a bit of a hissy fit when Chairman Henry Waxman followed committee rules by allowing only the Chairman and the ranking minority member to make opening statements at the hearing.
Apparently, Shays felt that this was a golden opportunity to bluster about economic issues and get some local coverage in the 4th District, where he's obviously feeling the heat from the challenge of an experienced businessman who knows a lot about Wall Street.
Waxman was having none of it, and shut down Shays's attempts to usurp the rules twice. You can see Shays getting more and more annoyed at the rebuffs.
Hey Chris, maybe the time you should have spoken up was when your party rammed deregulation on us about a decade ago. You were there. You didn't stop it.
(h/t to Scarce, who's obviously some kind of machine, because humans can't possibly be as prolific as him!)
