Dems shout "Shame, Shame" on House floor

BradBlog's got the video of the latest GOP trickery in the House:


Republicans House members DeLay, Barton, Hastert and Blunt held the vote open on a controversial energy bill until they were able twist enough arms for the bill to pass.
Although, only 5 minutes are allotted for voting, Republicans refused to close the voting for 40 minutes until enough votes had switched to pass the energy bill which will gut environmental standards in favor of building more oil refineries.
The video is a CNN clip, and it's must-see TV.
