Via Mediaite, five minutes of your tax dollars at work. Actually, it’s a nice transition from the Thanksgiving holiday: If you’ve never been trapped at the dinner table on turkey day next to an especially dull, talkative relative and had them bore you into a stupor, just wait. You’re about to get the full experience. In fact, by the fifth minute, I was enjoying it as a type of congressional performance art. No one would think to spend this much time rambling about a football game on the floor of Senate … unless he was trying to be purposely transgressive.
