Today is going to be fun for many schleps on Capitol Hill — some grimacing because of stuff President Obama said, others delighting for the same words. You can’t make any of those nine-percent-approval-rating hacks happy.
One thing we can guarantee: Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) will be one of the most miserable men in Washington today. (That’s him pictured bum rushing a NY1 reporter to the left.)
Grimm skipped the ‘State of the Union’ afterglow and gave himself a big PR black eye. In one of the bajillion post-SOTU interviews, NY1 reporter Mike Scotto managed to get Grimm’s attention for an interview in the Capitol Rotunda.
His follow-up question perturbed Grimm so much that he threatened to hurl Scotto clean off the balcony. And yes, he did it on live TV.
