When it comes to showing respect for our political institutions far too many in this country do so. Yesterday was an impressive day for proper disrespect when outgoing South Carolina Representative Joe Cunningham gave his floor speech.
Regardless of political affiliation you have to appreciate someone who comes up with a very appropriate send off in Congress, decorum be damned.

This is the way to do it. Okay, admittedly he did not go full-Boss, as he left the mask on and did not take a full pull from his suds, but still — impressive enough.
Cunningham was evidently intent on his send off, as he skirted a previous attempt to halt him from taking more of the brew into the chamber.
Durkin did some investigative journalism and got to the bottom of the brand that Cunningham threatened to swill from on the Congressional record.

There has been plenty of praise going around for the toasting departure.

Best part is when he cracked it open, this year deserves a beer. Not sure anyone in congress does but, the hell with it! He should’ve chugged it

Had he done this earlier, I bet he’d still me a Member of Congress.

That is something to ponder.
Bring a beer to work day…I can get behind that movement…

Well with so many working from home that is becoming a daily occurrence.
(Editor’s Note: This is not to be considered an admission that beer was consumed while writing this post. It is also not a denial of such.)
Of course, there had to be a share of buzz-killing fun-vacuums when they saw this display.
This isn’t a frat house @JoeCunninghamSC—take your shenanigans home to mama. ?

Tell me is is this the proper decorum for a state employee worker to have, a republican at the very least, any of them really… Can't make a decision drinking on the job. Should be sacked…

Thanks for the lecture Karen – his manager will be contacted. Also, his party is clearly indicated in the chyron showing that–…ah hell, never mind.
The Grand Ol' Party sure does love a good prop.
