An incredibly attractive woman who has the hots for tall men dressed in black suits, preferably accessorized with blue ties. Swoonbats generally like to bite their victims on the neck but are rarely dangerous. They merely nibble when given the chance. Swoonbats may or may not be tattooed with the symbol of a bat. They also have a strange predilection for watching Congressional hearings.
The Swoonbat sidled up to the handsome senator BATTing her eyelashes and trying to cop a feel of his pretty, blue tie.

1. Scooter Libby's scamnesia defense in 2004 Congressional hearings re: the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame, whose former diplomatic corp husband was a vocal war critic.

"The simple truth is, 'I don't remember - period'" - President Reagan writing to the Tower Commission to set the record straight about whether he authorized the arms shipment (to Iran)in advance.
A porno metal band that sounds like Black Sabbath meets Hustler magazine that formed in the late 70s. Originally fronted by a bald bearded beer gut voclist/drummer guy known as El Duce. Who later got ran over by a train and killed back in April 1997. Also in the band was Dr Heathen Scum on bass and Sickie Wifebeater on guitar. The Mentors biggest claim to fame was back in 1985 when somebody during the Tipper Gore's PMRC congressional hearings read the lycics to "Golden Showers", from the album "You Axed For It".
Dr Heathen Scum still continues the Mentors band with a whole new crew.

What some dumbass from Texas deems as english worthy for the United States Congressional Hearings. To misinterpret or to misunderstand.
Roger Clemens: I believe Andy Misremembers.
Congressman Shay: Excuse me, I didn't hear you (haha).

U.S. Congressman Joe Barton (R-Texas) was the lead
Republican at the congressional hearings about the bp oil spill.
As his opening remarks with bp's Tony Hayward, he actually apologized to him for President Obama's "harsh treatment." Barton actually said Obama's insisting on bp setting up a $20 Billion victim compensation fund was a "shakedown."
The appropriate shock and awe followed. Even John Boehner was embarrassed and Barton eventually apologized for his own assisnine insensitive stupidity.
Some of Rep. Barton's Republican colleages were surprised to hear he was a bp sympathizer, but many of his corporate owned colleages agreed with him. However if you look at his $1.4 million in campaign contributions from big oil you can begin to understand.
Rep. Joe Barton (R) Texas
Joe Barton is the fuckwit who, during his opening remarks at congressional hearings on the BP Oil spill actually apologized to Tony Hayward!! Barton thought the Obama Administration treated the BP C.E.O. unfairly after his company caused the worst environmental disaster in American history! Most people were annoyed because Obama didn't deal more harshly with Hayward and BP, but not this Big Oil Texan.
