Speaker O'Brien Speaks ...

1:40 p.m.

Moments after he took the oath, O'Brien was presented with the gavel by former Speaker Bob O'Donnell.

"I am truly overwhelmed. This is not something I thought about 24 hours ago. This is going to be one of the shortest speeches in Pennsylvania history. This is unexpected and I'm completely honored," O'Brien said with his son, Dennis, at his side.

He went on to pledge that he would move forward with a series of unspecified reforms.

Is he going to be a Democrat?

who cares if he's a Democrat, a Republican or a Mummer. I want to know what those reforms are, if they're good, and if he's serious about them.

Nothing funnier that seeing State Reps dressed as Mummers on NYE marching down 2 street drunk off their asses. I saw Bill Keller all dressed up a few years ago with Jokers I believe...

Gotta love Philly politics.
