This is insane.
See Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (PA) completely over-reacts to a slight tough from a colleague during the middle of a meeting.
"I'm a heterosexual, I have a wife, I love my wife, I don't like men as you might, stop touching me."
He should have said:
"I'm a jerk, I have a problem not being a jerk, I love being a jerk. I don't like being reasonable, stop being nice to me."
