In case you missed it, House Democrats staged a sit-in Wednesday to push for gun sale restrictions. They vowed to stay on the House floor until Republicans allow a vote on gun control legislation, in what they called an “unprecedented” move.
But the political endeavor quickly turned into a running internet joke once pictures emerged from the House chambers. The “sit-in” started to look more like a daycare with Democrats throwing a temper tantrum.
CR’s Steve Deace summed up the situation best, in a way that only he can:
The irony of politicians thinking they're accomplishing something by sitting on their rear ends is, well, striking.

Then, conservatives on Twitter took a stab at characterizing the tantrum:
To be honest, the image above, though meant as a swipe, is way more dignified than what was actually happening within the Congressional chambers Wednesday.
This is more accurate:

Well, actually, even that offers the daycare Democrats a little too much respect.

CR’s Rob Eno suggested the House Dems make better use of their time while they sit around on the floor. Anyone up for a game of duck duck goose?
