The Do Nothing Congress

Has anyone been watching the "Broken Government" series on CNN? A so-called international news network that I am not a big fan of. Well they nailed this one. Seems Senators and Representatives work only three three day workweeks and apparently yelled at the Congressional Leadership to approve this madness. They also have voted themselves seven pay raises in as many years while refusing to raise the minimum wage for poor people. My current mantra is " throw the bums out" Wake up people, we are losing our democracy. Well, I am off to Hunan Palace on Vermont for chinese carryout.

I'm liking CNN more but I'm really fascinated by the Reese Witherspoon break up.
