What level of service does your tax dollar buy in D.C.?

This level:

That horrible Washington weather.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took to the Senate floor this morning to explain why the scheduled 10 a.m. vote on a homeland security measure would have to take place at 1 p.m. instead.

Noting it might seem strange for those outside the Beltway that a little white powder falling from the sky could cripple Senate operations, the Nevada Democrat said Washington is "different from a lot of other places."

He added that some might scratch their head at "an inch or two" of snow creating "all the pause, but it does."

To be honest, I think that might be the best value we get out of the Senate all week. Here's to more one inch snowfalls!
