Today, our lame duck Congress is whittling away its time until the end of its term by interrogating an Obamacare architect who said (correctly) on tape that many Americans are stupid.

Before the Americans are "stupid" Gruber hearing really got under way Tuesday, ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) mentioned that Issa's official portrait had been hung up in the committee room.

"Thank you for saying I was hung," Issa said, without missing a beat. He then laughed.
