There's some amazing TV happening right now. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) apparently got caught sticking a provision in an appropriations bill allowing senate members to snoop into citizens' and business' IRS records. CSPAN2 has suspended its Book TV hooha to carry this. The Democrats are going nuts, as did John McCain and a few other moderate GOPers. Barbara Boxer just went off, and Robert Byrd is currently taking the senate to school, decrying what has happened to it over the "last few years."
It's GREAT TV. Tune in...this ain't ending soon.
UPDATE: Byrd said he's voting against the bill out of protest. It's also his 87th birthday. Well played, Mr. Byrd.
