Yup, Alabama Congress Members WERE Yelling ‘Roll Tide’ on the Capital Floor (Video)


Sure, Alabama’s got a pretty great college football program going. And they’ve had a great one in the past, too. So it’s no surprise that the state’s residents and representatives are beaming with pride this week after the team took home yet another College Football National Championship.

So I don’t want to be TOO critical of the fact that the state’s congressional reps took to the capitol floor to give the world a big “Roll Tide” that it never asked for. Alabama wins the title like every other year, and shouldn’t these politicians be up to something else, like getting the reading rate in their state up or parsing down the number of hate crimes in their districts?
