Video: Weiner stands up for Car Talk during congressional hearings on NPR funding
Congress' Anthony Weiner on Car Talk – Click above to watch the video after the jump
U.S. congressman Anthony Weiner has had more than his fair share of rants during his time in the House of Representatives. And let's face it, the man seems to really enjoy grandstanding and shouting – or perhaps he just suffers from voice immodulation.
At a recent hearing concerning the de-funding of National Public Radio, the Democrat from New York took to the podium packing some serious decibels. The congressman didn't show up for rant duty empty-handed, either, carrying a poster of NPR Car Talk hosts Click and Clack. In his own unique tongue-in-cheek fashion, the New York congressman takes the stance that the longtime gearhead show is worthy of government funding. Hit the jump to watch the impassioned clip. Hat tip to Marcus!
