    House guidelines for Presidential put-downs - Glenn Thrush -

    Yikes. Chairman Mao would agree wholeheartedly.



    Really? Seriously people?

    Especially useful: The section on how to properly insult the executive branch in the in the chamber.
    "Disgrace" and "nitwits" -- okay.
    "Liar" or "sexual misconduct" -- ixnay.
    Under section 370 of the House Rules and Manual it has been held that a Member could:
    • refer to the government as “something hated, something oppressive.”
    • refer to the President as “using legislative or judicial pork.”
    • refer to a Presidential message as a “disgrace to the country.”
    • refer to unnamed officials as “our half-baked nitwits handling foreign affairs.”
    Likewise, it has been held that a member could not:
    • call the President a “liar.”
    • call the President a “hypocrite.”
    • describe the President’s veto of a bill as “cowardly.”
    • charge that the President has been “intellectually dishonest.”
    • refer to the President as “giving aid and comfort to the enemy.”
    • refer to alleged “sexual misconduct on the President’s part.”
