PLUS: Republicans give standing ovation to Capitol Police who are now required to work without pay during government shutdown...

Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) --- we're inclined to write "(R-Asshole)" --- makes a national disgrace of himself on the Republican Grandstanding Stage that has become the national WWII Memorial...


And speaking of assholes...

That's a tweet from Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), showing us all how proud she and the other House members are of the Capitol Police who stepped in to stop an incident today that included some sort of car chase and/or shooting outside the Capitol.

They are all so very proud of the men and women they are giving an ovation to, that they continue to ask them to work without pay to protect them during the GOP's federal government shutdown.

Or, as Politico's Adam Snider observed:

Plenty of disgrace to go around in the nation's capitol today, it seems.
