OBEY AND WATERS IN EARMARK ALTERCATION:

Two Democrats got into a verbal altercation — and according to one a physical one — on the floor of the House on Thursday night over an appropriations earmark one was seeking.

After the House floor had largely cleared following a series of votes, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Appropriations Chairman David Obey (D-Wis.) split apart from a heated conversation and began yelling at one another.

My favorite bit: “Obey turned away, but Waters went to go huddle with members of the Congressional Black Caucus. She could be over heard telling them: ‘He touched me first.'” The country’s in the very best of hands.
