A Michigan congressman has turned Jonathan Papelbon choking Bryce Harper into a pithy phrase you can use at any time.

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. 

“No fire­works. No Pa­pel­bon,” Upton told Na­tion­al Journ­al.

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.
