Florida Congressman, Alcee Hastings who sits on the House Rules Committee says, actually, there are no rules! They make them up as they go along. 

Behold! A rare glimpse into Democratic leadership:

As it turns out, Hastings is an impeached judge turned congressman. He was originally indicted on charges of accepting a bribe but not convicted.

To be fair, Hastings was technically referring to a Thomas Edison quote, but it was nonetheless meant as representative of his own views on the process. Which is basically, anything goes. You can hear his full remarks here.
