Rep. Chris Shays is a real class act.

Here's the pride and joy of the 4th District repeatedly admonishing Katy Helvenston-Wettengel (who was only trying to answer Shays questions within his endless and shameless rant).

Who is Katy Helvenston-Wettengel you ask? Well, she just happens to be one of the relatives of the four American contractors who providing private security in Iraq that were ambushed by a mob and their bodies dragged through the streets of Fallujah. Helvenston-Wettengel, and three other relatives of the victims, testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform about the outrageous conditions the contractors were forced to deal with while in Iraq (i.e., lack of body armour, lack of amour ed cars, no maps, etc).

After these individuals fought back tears testifying about the recounting how the contractors, were sent out into the meat grinder called Iraq without the protective equipment they were promised, the Republicans wasted no time and doing what they do best...attack the messenger. Shays grilling and belittling of Helvenston-Wettengel was so offensive that Rep. Henry Waxman apparently had enough of the 4th District Congressman and pulled the plug on him.

Watch and puke.
