Good to know the maturity in the House of Delegates hasn’t increased

From Anita Kumar’s blog at The WaPo: U.S. House Members Stop by Virginia House:

Even the introductions are partisan in the House of Delegates.

Del. Lacey E. Putney, an Independent from Bedford who caucuses with Republicans, introduced two visiting members of Virginia’s congressional delegation, Republican Reps. Thelma Drake and Robert J. Wittman.

A third member, Democrat Rep. James P. Moran Jr. was sitting close by but was not recognized until House Minority Leader Ward L. Armstrong (D-Henry) stood up to introduce him.

Say what you will about James “Jim” Moran (and if you can say it, I’ve said it) but at least have some damn respect for the office!

Do Republicans not know the definition of “political suicide”? First, you boo youth visitors to the General Assembly, and now this? Did you learn nothing from “macaca”?

Can you at the very least show some damn maturity?

Wait, with John Hager running the Republican Party of Virginia, I’m not sure why I’m expecting so much.

    Not trying to make any excuses for not recognizing a Member of Congress (I agree he should have). Was there more to his recogniztion – Drake and Wittman were both members of the HOD not too long ago – was he making mention to that effect?

    Yes even if he was he should of either recognized Rep. Moran as well or at least had it worked out with the Armstrong for him to recognize him.
