GOP: Rules Are Only For Our Opponents, Part 2

Evan McMorris-Santoro of TPM, one more time:

The Republican-controlled House voted this morning to wash away the massive fail caused by Reps. Pete Sessions' (R-TX) and Mike Fitzpatrick's (R-PA) decision to skip Wednesday's swearing-in ceremony in favor of taking the oath to a television set at a Capitol complex event for Fitzpatrick. 

By a vote of 257 to 159, the House voted in a special rule written for Sessions and Fitzpatrick to essentially rewrite Congressional history so the votes they cast as unsworn members-elect Wednesday and Thursday never happened. 

What is there to say but "IOKIYAR" ...

AFTERTHOUGHT:  Taking an oath to a television set does seem to me to make a lot of sense for an American. Many of us worship the damned thing.
