I dunno, I wouldn't say she lost bad. She had a few good points about how, since small children sometimes spoke out of turn, it was okay for her to. I'd say the little kid had a comfortable lead over her though.
If even one of those kids knew about the Rules of Order in the City Council, though, she'd have been toast. Then again, Conyers apparently also doesn't know how or why Rules of Order work. You'd think that maybe a little of John Conyers would have rubbed off, but apparently not.
That little girl has serious balls. Good for her. And it's pretty awesome that they are taking kids to the council like that. I wish I had that in my school.

Yes, sort of like when she pointed out that as a city council member, she would expect you to be held to a higher standard than a fifth grader. And you ignored her. Three times.
"I'm not going to get combative with you, young lady."
That's good... because from the looks of things, she'd kick your ass.

She's 43. Her husband, Congressman John Conyers, will turn 79 a week from today.
Sam Riddle is Samuel L. Jackson in disguise!

After the camera stopped rolling a gun fired at which point Mr. "Riddle" said.
"OH I'M SORRY DID I BREAK YO CONCENTRATION?!"
"THEY SELL POKEMON CARDS IN 'WHAT'?!"
