IF IT'S IMPROMPTU WHO'S FILMING IT?:

YouTube strikes again (Mike Viqueira, 3/09/07, First Read: NBC)

The powerful chairman of the House Appropriations Committee and the chief sponsor of the bill that would require a US troop withdrawal from Iraq by fall of 2008 has been caught on camera losing his temper with anti-war activists who confronted him outside his Capitol Hill office. In the video, Rep. David Obey (D) rails against "idiot liberals" who are "jumping around" demanding an immediate de-funding of the war. He says the votes aren't there, and angrily opens his coat and asks if they see "a magic wand" in there that would enable him to do that. (Obey doesn't appear to know that he's on camera.)

Perhaps the anti-war people thought they'd put the congressman on the spot and have some great footage for their propaganda? Didn't work out that way though.
