The Ongoing Bid to Entertain Americans

If the goal of Senate Cons was to turn American government into absurdist theater in the wake of defeat, they're making a pretty good start of it:
As for Senate Republicans' next move, Sen. David Vitter, the scandal-plagued far-right Louisianan , offered the GOP's first two amendments this afternoon. The first is a measure to "repeal the government takeover of health care," and the second is "prohibiting use of funds to fund ACORN."

The latter refers to a group that no longer seems to exist.

It sometimes amazes me who actually gets to serve in the world's most deliberative body.
