Mardi Gras Parade Through Congress Tonight
Why not? After all, it is Mardi Gras and all of the Senators and House members will be present to listen to President Obama's assessment of the mess he found on the doorstep of the White House in late January, courtesy of the previous occupant and Congress.
What a hoot! All sorts of weird people in costume, strange music, and odd gyrations moving down center aisle would be just what these lawmakers need to see. It might just shake them up and knock them off of their high horses and ivory towers!
Here's a interesting question: will we citizens be able to distinguish the foolishness of the Mardi Gras performers from that of the Congress?
