A Couple House Keeping Tips For Congressman Silvestre Reyes

Just a couple house keeping tips for Congressman Silvestre Reyes.........

1.) Do not have your office release a statement just minutes after the State of the Union Address is over and date it three days in advance. Plus yesterday would mean the address was given on the 27 when it was actually given on the 25th.


Documents... - US Representative Silvestre Reyes

Jan 28, 2010 - Congressman Silvestre Reyes released the following statement today on the President's State of the Union address delivered yesterday at the ...reyes.house.gov/News/DocumentQuery.aspx?CatagoryID=4817 - Cached"
2.) Do not have a big wad of Hubba Bubba bubble gum in your mouth when you could possibly be on national television. Didn't your mother teach you that?

and last but not least........

3.) Don't be lazy and stand up and applaud when your other Democrat friends are doing it. It didn't look to good to have a Democratic Congressman sitting on his tush when the rest of the Democrats were giving the President a standing ovation after he mentioned the new health care law. I didn't say it was wrong for you not to give a standing ovation, I wouldn't have either. I'm just saying that you have to play along with your little friends so you won't look bad. But as I see these suggestions were a little too late.


  1. I guess I wasn't the only one who saw Reyes chewing on bubble gum. Check out what Peter Morello, associate professor of broadcast journalism, University of Missouri-Kansas City called his gum chewing.


    "Least civil moment: One member of congress chewing gum while reading, instead of listening to, the address."

  2. Sammy you are hilarious! In your zeal to try to embarrass the Congressman and his staff, you made a huge and hilarious mistake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The document you refer to is from the LAST State of the Union Address!!!!

    Just a couple of tips for Sammy...

    Never point out a mistake by the Congressman's office that never really happened and only refer to events that actually happened when they happened as opposed to the previous year.

    And...Never have the nerve to quote a guy who has the audacity to say the congressman was the least civil while just last year a Republican congressman blurted out "you lie"!

  3. Six days after I posted the piece and finally a come back. It must have been a long six days of analyzing to find that mistake. Guess what happens when this happens, I come in and say "I sure did make a mistake" but my mistake was not as big as the Congressman's. His gum chewing was seen by the whole nation. My tiny following will soon forget and forgive my slip up. But the Congressman's act will live forever on YouTube.

    Now in defense of the person I quoted.....he had the audacity to say the Congressman's gum chewing was the "least civil moment" of this State of The Union address. Not last years, not off all addresses, but this years State of The Union Address. Last year least civil moment was obviously the "you lie" moment. In fact that has to be the least civil moment in recent history if not in all of history. But that does not change the fact that Reyes' gum chewing was this years "Least Civil Moment"!
