Watch closely as U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette lords over all of us from the Speaker’s chair while the House is in session.

Waving her fancy gavel around, telling folks what to do, and … wait, did she just bring the U.S. House of Representatives to a halt so she could sanitize the gavel with a wipe?

We would totally like to wipe down our House gavel, but out here in the real world, it’s like this.


Is DeGette eating ice cream while presiding over Congress and getting the gavel all sticky or something?

Or was the Democrat who presided before her just nasty?

Maybe DeGette can bring some of those wipes back to Colorado because we can’t find ANY in the stores.
