Mean Brazilian Plane Crash Steals Media Spotlight from Congressional Stunt Bed


A worker lays out a cot for U.S. Senators in the Lyndon B. Johnson room, just off the Senate floor, in the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington July 17, 2007. U.S. Senate Democrats, hoping to raise pressure on President George W. Bush and his fellow Republicans to pull troops from Iraq, have scheduled an around-the-clock war debate starting on Tuesday.

I love wire service photos of political novelty cots*, but I really, totally heart the above, because it's a wire service photo of wire service photographers taking photos of a political novelty cot. Good for you, Mr. Reed, for capturing the true nature of the overnight photo-op!

Bad timing with the plane crash, though. It just goes to show that, as ever, Democrats simply can't ever do anything right. Tsk.

*There's the name for your new band!

Finally! A place other than the living room couch for Senator Vitter (aka Senator Huggies) to lay his sleepy head.

How right you are... why deal with all those bothersome hotels? Just escort the escorts right to the Capitol!

Thanks for saving some taxpayer dollars king!!

What? No linens?
I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to nap bareback on those mattresses.
Talk about cooties...

Ew, using the word "bareback" in relation to this filled my head with unwelcome images.
