    There is no way those folks are making rational decisions if there's as much drinking on the House floor as HuffPost and other outlets are reporting. No one makes good rational decisions when they're that impaired.

    So my suggestion for how to resolve this quickly would be for liquor sellers, caterers, bars, etc. etc. -- and any irate staffers, which I assume there are plenty of -- to basically go on strike, and refuse to sell or serve any more booze, until this thing is resolved. Lock it up in file cabinets, lock it up at home, do whatever is needed to keep it away from the Congresscritters and staffers.

    Hit 'em where it hurts, and sober them up. After a few days of DTs, and some coffee, they may be in better shape to legislate.
