Congressman Was Actually Shouting 'Baby Killer' At Bill Guy Supported, Not At Actual Guy

Baby killer shouter"Last night was the climax of weeks and months of debate on a health-care bill that my constituents fear and do not support. In the heat and emotion of the debate, I exclaimed the phrase 'it's a baby killer' in reference to the agreement reached by the Democratic leadership. While I remain heartbroken over the passage of this bill and the tragic consequences it will have for the unborn, I deeply regret that my actions were mistakenly interpreted as a direct reference to Congressman Stupak himself."
-Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) explains that whole unfortunate "shouting 'baby killer thing" during yesterday's health care debate. It's understandable. When you're in The Party of Shouting Terrible Things, the intent of the terrible things you shout will occasionally be misinterpreted.

"I just meant you were in favor of killing babies. Not that you'd always do it yourself."

It's our inalienable right as Americans to shout "Baby Killer" in a crowded theater.

Ironically, when I got a better look at his picture I exclaimed, "Boner Killer!"

He lies.

Looks like a man with a sizeable beer hall putsch.

By "exclaimed," he means "ejaculated."

Don't they have mouth condoms? Oh right he probably cut funding for the program.

Abstinence only blathering.

It's so hard to control yourself at the "climax of … debate."

They don't tolerate this sort of thing in England.

In all fairness, the baby he was shouting at was the primary suspect in all those murders.

This really would have been the correct way to spin the situation.

I remember when I was in middle school, shouting things from the back of assemblies was always funny. Didn't even have to make sense, as long as everyone in Ms Moon's fourth period English class heard it. And then I would get picked in the middle for basketball instead of last during lunch.
