Senators couldn't wait to skip town after the long-delayed passage of health care reform legislation this morning. High on the agenda, up there with celebrating the holidays, and visiting with families, will be sleep.
A tired Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV) set the tone for the event. When the clerk called out his name, Byrd broke with protocol. Instead of calling out his vote, Byrd shouted "Mr. President, this is for my friend, Ted Kennedy. Aye."
Man kicks more ass before breakfast than the rest of us do all day long.
