That was really special. Do we know if anything like that has ever happened before?

I would bracket it against the money quote from the 1985 Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation hearing where the Reverend Jeff Ling confronted Frank Zappa with the "obscene" song lyrics "Bend up and smell my anal vapor / Your face is my toilet paper"

Guided by the holy spirit the stenographer now is qualified to run for Michelle Bachmann's seat.

For a minute I thought your title referred to the Washington "press".

People say stupid shit in the house all the time. Most of the time it's idiots who don't work there (like code pink) who are promptly hauled off. Actual congress critters do it as well, they get to keep ranting.

This might be the first time a government worker who's not a congress person decided to go on a lunatic rant, but it's hardly the first time someone went on a lunatic rant in congress.
