Capitol showdown as veteran Democrat schools Marjorie Tylor Greene – By Laura Clawson (Daily Kos Staff) / Nov 15, 2023
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene learned two important lessons on Tuesday night: how a bill becomes a law, and that an 80-year-old who rocks purple hair in Congress will probably not hesitate to call out bullshit.
“My Democrat colleague across the aisle who is 80 years old and has been here over 30 years just said we’re on the verge of a shutdown,” Greene said, bringing her characteristic snottiness to approximately every fourth word as she referred to Rep. Rosa DeLauro. “She probably just forgot that a few hours ago she voted for a continuing resolution that will extend the budget, and we are not on the verge of a shutdown, so I just wanted to note that for the record.”
Maybe Greene was posturing for some right-wing news outlet or her own fundraising emails. Maybe she just can’t help it. In any case, she got the response she deserved.
