All ‘pooped out’ – Kid Catches His Zzzz’s

If former UPI White House reporter Helen Thomas couldn’t stay awake for the entire White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, how could a little blond boy be expected to stay awake for Rep. Ted Poe‘s (R-Texas) entire floor speech Tuesday night on national domestic violence awareness? Even as Poe’s voice angrily rises in decibel over the issue, the boy falls deeper into slumber, falling over and swaying in a leather chair. Pubs like Politico and Roll Call ran stories on this incident this week.

As explained¬† on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” Thursday morning by Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas.), the kid is Poe’s grandson, Barrett Travis. “I think he just got pooped out,” reasoned Brady in the following clip.

As for the kid nodding off, we could watch this all day.
Watch after the jump…
