David Wu melted down at a townhall in Oregon when asked why he won’t read the health care bill or the cap and trade bill. Watch it here:
Wu managed no coherent response. That isn’t totally unusual for him. I was in the House chambers for the Medicare vote, when I worked for Nick Smith. There were many strange things that night. But one of the weirdest was Wu’s behavior. David Broder reported (pdf) that a fellow member of the House described him as "almost catatonic."
But hey, why be able to read or explain a bill that he thinks is one of the most important ever, right?
