Diane Reidy: The Sanest Person In Washington DC
Diane Reidy is – or was – a longtime stenographer for the U.S. House of Representatives. Lawmakers have described her as friendly and well-liked, and she’s obviously not terrible to look at (and has kept herself reasonably “intact”). More to the point, she’s reportedly never demonstrated anything resembling erratic behavior.
Why, then, did Reidy have a major meltdown during the big vote to “re-open” the federal government this week?
Good question …
“He will not be mocked!” Reidy shouted after striding to the podium of the House during the evening vote. “He will not be mocked!”
“Don’t touch me,” Reidy snapped as House staffers made their first attempts to keep her from speaking.
“He will not be mocked,” she continued. “The greatest deception here is this is not one nation under God. It never was.”
“Had it been, it would not have been … the Constitution would not have been written by Free Masons … that go against God,” Reidy added as a pair of men in suits forcibly led her from the podium. “You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve two masters. Praise be to God, Lord Jesus Christ.”
Reidy was taken to a Washington D.C. mental hospital for evaluation after being removed from the House floor.
This woman – whose outrage strikes us as seriously dated and more than a little misplaced (assuming she’s even aware of what she’s saying) – comes off as positively sane compared to those who think the latest “DC debt deal” is going to do anything but exacerbate our nation’s fiscal dilemma.
In fact she might as well be the sanest person in Washington, D.C. – a city which needs to do all of us a favor and disappear from the map as quickly as possible.
