There is a fierce debate raging in the Senate over the proposed constitutional amendment that would ban flag burning. It's crazy in the chamber, crazy I tell ya.
That's not to say the senators were feeling energetic as they took up the amendment. The day's session started at 2 p.m., but by 2:21, there was no senator on the floor to speak, and the chamber went into a quorum call -- its equivalent of a nap -- for the next hour.

If it wasn't obvious before, it certainly is now, our government is officially asleep at the wheel.

Since it's time for my quorum call, head on over to The Carpetbagger Report and Shakespeare's Sister for more on the Senate's flag burning fever.
