We just can’t make up our minds about Baron Hill, a Democrat Congressman from Indiana. Part of us thinks he’s a complete jerk, but a kinder, gentler part of us says, no, he’s just a complete ignoramus.
Hill called on a young woman at a recent town hall meeting. She told him she was a journalism student working on a school project and objected to the fact that she was told she couldn’t videotape the event.
Student: Why can’t I film this? Isn’t this my right?
Hill: This is my town hall meeting, and I set the rules, and I’ve had these rules … (crowd jeers) … Let me repeat that one more time. This is my town hall meeting for you. And you’re not going to tell me how to run my Congressional office. Now, the reason why I don’t allow filming is that usually the films that are done end up on YouTube in a compromising position.
Apparently Hill didn’t notice that someone else in the crowd was breaking his rules and taping his answer.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, we’re proud to present Congressman Baron Hill’s YouTube debut.
