Al Gore took similar issue recently when he was trying to tout the environmental benefits of a vegetarian diet while at the same time his current weight, cholesterol level and what he ate for dinner the night before were displayed on a monitor above the stage.

From the Daily Caller:

During a House Financial Services Committee hearing Tuesday on the budget, two Democrats complained after House Financial Services Committee chairman Jeb Hensarling instructed that two monitors in the hearing room display a real-time running national debt clock.

California Rep. Maxine Waters and Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison both issued complaints about the displays, according to video of the hearing.

“Clearly it is a political prop designed to message ideologically,” Ellison said.

Waters asked that the debt clock not be on display whenever Democrats spoke, Hensarling said during the hearing.

“At the request of the ranking member, the national debt clock will not be put on the screens during Democratic time,” said Hensarling, a Texas Republican.

Did you see Ellison on with Hannity last night? Ellison was so worked up you’d have thought Hannity was displaying a debt clock every time he spoke.
