Cap and Horse Trade

UPDATED below and often.

“We’re making deals on the floor.”

BREAKING: House leadership is refusing to provide a copy of the text of the bill.

LEADERSHIP: Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-GA) is “keeping a tally of callers and his office says he’ll vote based on the number of callers for or against cap and trade.”

REPORTEDLY: There is exactly one extant copy of the bill. It his hidden in the Congressional cloakroom. I believe it is on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying “Beware of the Leopard.”

TYPO: The “new” printed version of the bill is still missing 300 new pages. Assuming anyone can find it.

GOHMERT: New GOP star?

WHAT A JOKE: Cap and Trade as permanent welfare?

GOING: Out to dinner. Back shortly.
