The running joke among reporters covering the House of Representatives is that they only accomplish two things: name posts offices and pass non-binding resolutions.
Today was resolution day and the 410 members that were not on a junket or asleep in the chamber voted on a resolution to honor the LSU football team for their BCS Championship. You know.. for that game in which they spanked your favorite team.
Simple stuff -- everybody throws up a "yay" so they don't look like a poor sport and the resolution is quickly passed.
A dick move, to be sure, but that's gotta be worth a couple of thousand votes come reelection time, don't you think?
