Behold Your Government in Action

The U.S. Senate is a busy place. Lately it has been spending billions and billions over and above the trillions in unfunded liabilities. Given all this activity, who would have imagined that the senators could find the time to pass a resolution about the emergency plane landing in the Hudson river in New York?

I’m not a historian or political science expert, but this Senate is clearly determined to be the very best we have ever had. What a record pace they are setting!
