Watermelon Dan is at it again

Republican Congressperson Dan Burton calls for a Plexiglas shield to be built over the congressional chamber to protect the congresspeople from attack. This is the same guy who carried out the famous and embarrassing reconstruction of Vince Foster’s suicide:

Burton gained attention for re-enacting the alleged crime in his backyard with his own pistol and a pumpkin standing in for Foster’s head. After hearings into Democratic fundraising (see section below) began, a Democratic National Committee staffer appeared in a pumpkin suit with a button that read, “Don’t shoot.”

  1. Occasional news from meatspace, but the fact that my car finally gave up doesn’t make headlines.

    So, does Burton want to build a “cone of silence” too? You know; to keep some of those secret conversations really secret. The guy is just a few steps back from reality.
