1000 Days

From The Hill, some Republican congresspeople want to wear buttons that say “1000 Days” at tonight’s SOTU to mark the fact that the Senate (Democrat controlled) hasn’t passed a budget for that long.

From Instapundit, an email saying:

I’m on the hill today, visiting with Congressman, and we are finding that many of the GOP members are saying, “It’s against House rules to wear the ’1000 days’ buttons at the SOTU tonight…”

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t it “against the rules” to not pass a freaking budget for 1000 days???

Tell people to call their GOP Reps and Sens and tell them show some brass and wear the danged buttons tonight. And the establishment wonders why people are gravitating toward Newt. They want elected officials who want to fight, and if the political class can’t even get up the nerve to wear a button, how are they going to reform entitlements, reform the tax code, or cut any spending?

and a recommendation to look for their senators and representatives tonight to see: button or not?

Will Fitzpatrick wear a button?  I have no idea if we’ll even be able to see him, but still, I’m betting he won’t.  And to be honest, I probably won’t watch the SOTU.  More than 30 seconds of looking at and/or listening to Obama and my mind starts screaming “where’s the scotch?

  1. If that’s the way you felt, and you followed through with a trip to the liquor cabinet, that would explain your (probable) Obama vote! (Note to self: sober in November…)

    Funny, I felt the same way when Bush Jr. spoke 🙂
