Congressman says meeting wasn’t like Papelbon’s dugout blow-up
Jonathan Papelbon choking Bryce Harper is now being used to describe important political meetings. At least by one congressman.
Fred Upton, a Michigan Repuplican and the chair of the Energy and Commerce Committee, attended a meeting of all House Republicans and emerged with good news: No one put their hands around somebody else’s throat.
It’s nice to know that politics in this country have really progressed since the time a congressman beat a fellow representative unconscious with his cane.
