I won’t say too much about the revolt in the House of Representatives on Friday. I found it amusing in a very frustrating, sad, sort of way. There has been a great deal of coverage on the internet on the event, and little or none in the MSM. If you missed it here is the short version:
- Congress recessed
- House Republican’s, recognizing the current energy crisis as a crisis were pissed that the house recessed without considering any legislation.
- In an effort to take some action, the republicans refused to recess and stayed on the floor of the chamber debating the issue without camera, microphones, etc. until the lights were turned off by Capitol Police.
Those are the big components. However it doesn’t give you the feel for the atmosphere of the event. For that go here and follow the various links.
