“Clyburn rose to spoke...”?

What kind of grammar is that? Did that come from the Hill?

The “done” was left out, as in “Clyburn done rose to spoke...”

That's the past imperfect tense.

Hehehehe. I bet it was Clyburn who said it! Furthermore, what the heck did this idiot want to talk about that was so important that it couldn’t wait?
