Pic of the day: The most meta shot ever taken of the House floor?

This screenshot of a congressman on the House floor Thursday, standing with a screenshot of himself on the House floor two years ago, wearing an identical suit and tie, and making the same hand gesture was just too good not to share.

Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Ga.), who is stepping in to replace incoming Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) as the conservative Republican Study Committee interim chairman, spoke at length about the Supreme Court decision that President Obama’s recess appointments were unconstitutional, and criticized Obama for other executive actions.

Woodall’s point? That he’d made the same exact argument about Obama circumventing Congress two years before.

Luckily, C-SPAN’s Jeremy Art grabbed a screenshot of the congressman with the C-SPAN screenshot. Meta.

We called Woodall’s office to ask about the inspiration for the blown-up picture, but his spokesman declined to speak about it, saying he was only interested in discussing the substantive policy matters.
