Joe Garcia, meet 21st Century media.

Last Wednesday, the Democratic congressman from Florida was caught—in full HD glory, thanks to C-SPAN—picking his ear, examining what he found, and then eating it.

The only mystery more baffling than what exactly was in Joe Garcia’s ear or how it tasted, is why he would do such a thing in the middle of a House Judiciary Committee markup when TV cameras are pointed in his direction.

It just goes to show you that there’s a time and a place for everything ... like the men’s room during a recess.
