Here’s my totally unconfirmed account. I post this without researching right now simply because it is Friday and on Friday no blogs or reads blogs except my wife and I.

There are reports shots have been fired in Rayburn House Office Building across street from U.S. Capitol. Entire Capitol complex is locked down.

they are now putting yellow tape around the entrance

swat teams and bomb sniffing dogs going into the building

Hey, I’m here 🙂

And it probably will be a balloon popping from some Congressional aide’s “Lordy Lordy, Susan’s 40” birthday party.

I was going a little more Rube Goldberg than that. Car backfired causing Susan to jump and let go of her balloon which popped on the concrete ceiling causing Barney Fife to shoot his bullet causing an onslaught of ambulances and police to the scene bring Dick Cheney to alert who pulls his gun and shoots President Bush and tries to cover it up as a hunting accident.

See, and I just figured that Cynthia McKinney (D-Ga) was stopped by Capital Police again, and this time decided to pop a cap in some Cracker Cops ass.
