This Week's Senate Schedule

Our man for Senate business, Bob Geiger, has the schedule of the Senate's comings and goings on. While all eyes will be whether or not Sara Taylor will actually appear before the Judiciary committee (I'll go out on a limb and say "no"), Bob noticed something on the agenda that should quiet all you naysayers that the Senate is working on the people's priorities (/snark):

Oh, and on Thursday, the Judiciary Committee will move on to the weighty subject of too many Americans not knowing the words to the national anthem and will consider S. Res. 236, "a resolution supporting the goals and ideals of the National Anthem Project, which has worked to restore America's voice by re-teaching Americans to sing the national anthem."

Hey, it's bipartisan -- having such unlikely fellow cosponsors as Ted Kennedy (D-MA) and Trent Lott (R-MS) -- so I'm sure it's harmless enough.

But let's get this one out of the way quickly, OK?
