Between drunk Secret Service agents and Eleanor Holmes Norton, maybe we need to give all of Washington a refresher course in how to drive.

The D.C. delegate tried and failed to park her car outside the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, and the mess was all captured in the video above.

“If she parks like that she should not be a member of Congress anymore,” says one of the people watching the disaster.

In addition to being completely out of alignment with the rest of the vehicles, she apparently banged into the car next to her multiple times during the half-hour long debacle. Eventually she and her aide just walk away as if it’s all NBD.

Her office later told Roll Call that there were no damages and they left a card on the windshield so they could contact them.

Not sure that warrants the “worst parking job ever” award – a quick YouTube search reveals much worse – but it’s certainly up there in the rankings.

And Mr. Piggly Wiggly is theclear winner for recent parking lot fails. That one will be tough to beat.

Specifically, Colbert dives in on a little rant about how he thinks that Trump thinks Presidents get the weekends off--or least that big celebration that'll follow Inauguration Day on Friday.

That's Iowa Republican State Representative Ross Paustian, enjoying what he claims was a "gag gift" while totally paying attention to his political duties.

Big kudos to Kelsey D. Atherton for hunting down the image for what it really was...even in spite of the image's little disclaimer at the bottom righthand corner, I'm doubtful how many people actually noticed.



And the golden internet reactions are already rolling in folks...
