News of the Bizarre: Domenici Bolts & Shouts

I really am at a loss of words about this bizarre report on Raw Story about Sen. Pete Domenici. Excerpt:

Before bolting from the Senate chamber, U.S. Senator Pete Domenici (R-NM) shouted at Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR,) "I just violated the rules!"

Fact is, Senator Domenici is unquestionably an oil company whore. He has received a considerable amount of money in the way of contributions from oil and gas companies, he strongly supports drilling in the ANWR so it's no surprise that he would be upset that someone would have the nerve to suggest that oil interests have their subsidies taken from them. Perhaps it's time for the Senator to retire so that, someone that will put the interest of our state and our citizens ahead of corporate crony capitalists can work for us in Washington.

No surprise he's complaining. But how he did it was a little strange, wouldn't you say?
