Here’s a clip of Sen. Sherrod “60th Man” Brown finally showing up at a mostly empty Senate last night, saying a couple of words, and thereby giving each of you lazy slobs a job for once. CNN even shows Sherrod’s expensive Cadillac pulling up to the Senate at 10:30 on a Friday night to cast a deciding vote. In Washington, this is the very definition of “baller.”
We also learn that Brown took a government plane arranged by Barack Obama to and from Ohio — where he is burying his mother — because the Republicans quite obviously would have tried to blow up any commercial flight. Now the bill will go to Obama for a signing ceremony on Monday, and after that, they will actually have to write it.
