Just when the day couldn’t get any crazier…

A ranting woman unleashed a bizarre tirade on the House floor Wednesday night, as the chamber hurriedly voted to pass a bill to raise the debt ceiling and reopen the government.

“He will not be mocked, he will not be mocked,” the raving woman — reportedly House stenographer Diane Reidy — screamed.

“This is not one nation under God. It never was. Had it been… the Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons, they go against God,” she said, according to a Public Radio International reporter on hand.

“You cannot serve two masters,” she said.

Security officers quickly escorted the woman out.

The bizarre outburst came as Congress passed an eleventh hour deal to avert a first-ever default by the U.S. government on its debts.
