Sounds like the GOP is starting to act out...

Nobody expects to get a letter from a member of Congress that ends with an expletive.

The letter ended with a profane, seven-letter insult beginning with the letter a — "i think you're an. ..."

Emerson says she can't explain how the offensive language made it into the letter, which otherwise reads like a typical response to a citizen's question about last year's testimony of oil executives before the Senate Commerce Committee.

It's not every day you get called an "asshole" by your U.S. Representative. I wonder how much the letter will go for on eBay.
