Boring C-SPAN2 Panels Go Wrong, and Get Good

When Boring C-SPAN2 Panels Go Wrong, and Get Good

I was kicking back watching C-SPAN2 recently, as I often do — no, wait. I never do that, because it's usually painfully, agonizingly boring. But luckily someone at The Daily Caller was watching and was able to call the rest of the Internet's attention to one of the most awkward and bitter breakup-revenge-fantasy-come-true moments ever witnessed on live TV. Or at least on C-SPAN.

Midway through what appears to be a pretty dry panel discussion about young conservatives, panelist Todd Seavey can contain his distaste for ex-girlfriend and copanelist Helen Rittelmeyer no longer. He begins to let her have it in a strange, rambling monologue that at first feels like a joke, but as Todd's face gets more red and Helen's more shocked, it becomes clear is not. I'm not sure Todd won this round, but it's certainly one way to get back at an ex! Check out the video; the ugliness starts around 1:45.

I think it's safe to say they're both having a bad/awkward day...

Well, neither of them are very attractive, so he has no right to be ugly on the inside. If you're going to be a douchebag at least be a hot one.

He is such a jerk! Why would you do that? These comments didn't make her look bad, it make him look bad. There's one thing for sure, he will not be getting any girls anytime soon.
