I write this from the House floor at 1:15 a.m. Yes, it is the middle of the night. We started 12 hours ago. In that time period, we have voted exactly 20 times and passed exactly 7 bills. You probably don't care, and it would be hard to fully explain the procedures involved, but suffice to say, I am quite sure "we" do not know what we are doing. Certain individuals need to go to school and learn Mason's Rules of Parliamentary Procedure.

This is the most surreal day I have experienced in my 4 and a half years in the House. It is a day I will tell my grandchildren about...and their eyes will glaze over.
