Is it an insult to the taxpayer or just a guy trying to make his elderly mother happy and proud? Congressman Andy Harris (Rep., Maryland) took advantage of being on C-SPAN to mug for the camera behind a fellow lawmaker who was speaking from the floor of the House of Representatives. Congressman Harris, sitting behind Rep. Buddy Carter of Georgia and speaking at the time, was repeatedly looking at the camera, winking, grinning and sending text messages. 

You would hope our congressional folks could display a better attention span, but maybe Congressman Harris can be excused, given he was sending text messages, winking and mugging for the C-SPAN cameras because his mom was watching him! His spokesman says that mom gets a big kick out of seeing her 58-year-old son on TV.  And it proves that not everybody nods off watching C-SPAN.
