Horror of Horrors...

The horror, Representative Julia Hurley carved her initials into her desk!:

In the United States Senate, Republican Leaders-whether in the majority or minority-have usually sat at a certain desk on the Senate floor. Traditionally, when a Leader prepares to retire from the Senate or stand aside as Leader, they mark their time as Leader by-guess what-carving their names into the desk. Names of great Senators like Henry Cabot Lodge, Robert Taft, Howard Baker, and Bob Dole appear etched somewhere in the desk. Most people don't even know about this custom, but former U.S. Senator and Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tennessee) talked about how it felt to carve his name into the Leader's desk along with names like Howard Baker and Robert Taft in one of his farewell speeches on leaving the Senate. What a horrible defacer of public property Bill Frist is, isn't he?

I sort laughed at that story my self. I mean our economy is teetering on the brink of collapse and this is the big story of the day?

I thought it was sort of a puff piece for her oposition. I mean, why mention him at all other then to build him up and tear her down so he can rerun.
