Mr. CROWLEY. Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend my remarks.

The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the request of the gentleman from New York?

The SPEAKER pro tempore. The time of the gentleman has expired.

Rep. Joe Crowley 'Speechless' Speech on the House Floor
He broke a little new ground in the area of floor speeches by giving an entire floor speech but not speaking at all. Standing in front of an easel, he ripped down sheets of paper with words on them, giving his angry speech, but not actually saying a word of the partisan invective.
