It gets 5 seconds on Fox with a camera phone video shot and reporters are amused but don't take it seriously... media will just ignore it... now they could light a bonfire in the Chamber to demonstrate an alternative energy source, then they'd get attention! No one has the guts!
If W had a set he'd call a special session to address this bill and make Pelosi get her America-hating ass back to town. If this isn't the hottest issue on the agenda, then it's certainly got to be in the top 3. But Pelosi refuses to allow a vote on this extremely important bill. No wonder Congress has a 14% approval rating.
W may have to do exactly that. Seems the Repubs are camping out, planning to stay there, and have been joined by several hundred citizens so far. Seems the galleries cannot be closed so long as any congressmen are there, so...
It's a futile gesture, done just to make political points, but still -- this is one I can get behind.
