Let’s get this out of the way: I’m not much of a fan of Crooks & Liars, as I think they tend to engage in far too much of the name-calling and blind assumptions that drags down political discourse on both sides of the aisle, but this clip was simply too priceless to pass up:
Texas’s 5th District Representative Jeb Hensarling made an appearance on CSPAN and a C&L contributor mashed together all the calls utterly lambasting Hensarling and the GOP for blaming all of our country’s ills on Democrats. Hensarling sits there with an increasingly uneasy grin on his face while the CSPAN host looks to have a hard time not laughing. Watch it here.
Now again, to be fair: We don’t get to see Hensarling’s remarks, nor his replies so I think this should be taken more as a ‘for comedic effect’ clip rather than legitimate political discussion.
