    An amendment that has previously been voted on TWICE by the U.S. Senate in the past ten years? Voted on six times in the past ten years by the House?

    Excuse me if I don't share your shock and awe.  Yes, it's pretty crappy.  It is a waste of time.  And it's a stupid political ploy.  But it's not like we didn't know it was coming.  They've wasted time on this before.

    But to call it a day that will live in infamy, invoking FDR's Pearl Harbor address, is a wee, wee bit over the top don't you think?  This is a Congress that wasted time on fake Iraq war debates and Terry Schiavo, all under the guise of the nation's business.

    You miss the greater point, as well.  The amendment FAILED.  

    So, excuse me if I'm not girding my loins and haramphing about this "waste of time".

    This Congress has been wasting time for approximately 12 years now.

      It was a device not to be taken too literally in the present context.
      However I do find credible the suggestion that children will be snickering about this sidebar in their historybook chapter on the Iraq War and the Great Healthcare Depression.

      9/11 + 4 Years = Katrina... Conservatism Kills.
