Tensions boiled over last week when House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., cut of the microphone of ranking member Elijah E. Cummings, D-Md., before Cummings could speak at a panel hearing. Harsh words followed, along with rancor on the floor and, eventually, a kinda-sorta apology predicated on the words “hissy fit.” That brings us to this week’s Capitol Quip.
