Regulating debate on regulating the Internet

Today's House debate over whether the FCC should regulate the Internet was briefly interrupted when a Democrat mistakenly thought Rep. Lee Terry (R-Neb.) spoke twice on the matter.

Rep. Norm Dicks (D-Wash.) asked the chair if Terry spoke twice, but the chair said he believed Terry spoke only once. Terry then demanded time to explain.

"Yield to me please, give me a little bit of respect," he snapped. "I spoke one time right now. I don't know who you're confusing me with."

Dicks quickly replied: "You're such a handsome guy I thought you spoke twice, I'm sorry."
