The behavior of the Republicans in yesterdays Congressional hearings was so reprehensible Democrat John Yarmuth(KY) actually found it necessary to apologize. And he was absolutely correct when he attributed their misogynistic response to Ms. Warren to fear of powerful, smart women who aren't afraid to do the right thing. Meaning, Elizabeth Warren will have the "balls" to take on the GOP's most powerful supporters on Wall Street and that's got them peeing in their little pants. Republicans can't even stand the thought of any kind of consumer protection agency (they still hate the EPA). The thought of someone as tough and smart as Elizabeth Warren has already showed she can be just by the way she handles obnoxious Republicans who think they're all that because they sit on some lame congressional committee but only prove they know jack about anything, must scare the crap out of these arrogant little p*ssants. I hope Elizabeth Warren knows most Americans who saw this behavior found it as deplorable as Cong. Yarmuth and would want his apology to speak for all of us.
YARMUTH: I apologize to the witness, Dr. Warren, for the rude and disrespectful behavior of the chair. The snarky comments about a Senate race, and the questioning of your veracity when there is documented evidence that you are being totally truthful indicates to me that this hearing is all about impugning you because people are afraid of you and your ability to communicate in very clear terms the threats to our consumers and the threats to our constituents and possibly very, very effective ways to combat them. So I think, in one respect, I congratulate you for instilling such fear in the committee, on the majority side, and in some aspects, or segments, of the business community because they understand how effective you are in getting the message out to the American people.
