The Cowboy Poetry Showdown

<p>December 13, 2011 was an interesting day on the floor of the
House of Representatives.</p><p>That morning Rep. Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.) decided to take the
floor and recite his political parody of<span>&nbsp;
</span>‘Twas The Night Before Christmas’.<span> </span></p><p>A strange thing to do, certainly, but it wasn’t the only odd
moment on the House floor.<span>&nbsp; </span>I take
this opportunity to gather several moments from the House floor that day and
combine them into poetry, to challenge Rep. Tonko to a poetry showdown of
sorts.</p>
