Maybe They'll Get a Snow Day

One of my favorite things about Congress is how they tend to behave just like 7th graders. Capitol Briefing at the Washington Post has a blog entry that features these words:

Turning the traditional threat about Congressional recesses on its head, Reid issued an entirely different kind of recess proffer yesterday on the floor. He offered to wrap things up lickety-split this week and send all 100 senators home early, maybe even a full week ahead of schedule, for the planned week long Presidents Day recess scheduled to begin Feb. 16.

Forget about ideaology, intellectual honesty, political expedience, or any of the other infinite number of reasons you could vote for or against something. What's really important is that you get out of work a week early!

Last one to cast their vote gets a swirly.
