Wait… What?

Okay, so I can understand how Republicans and Blue Dogs might think a House resolution honoring Confucius (or anyone else) is perhaps not the best use of their time these days, what the healthcare reform and the recession and all, but then why show up to vote No in the first place?  Is a Nay somehow less time-consuming than a Yea?

And are votes to welcome the Archbishop of Constantinople and congratulate Northwestern’s women’s lacrosse team less time-consuming or frivolous than the one for Confucius?  Because none of them had any problem with those.  Yes, I’m sure that must have been it – honoring Catholics and Americans is just so much quicker than honoring Asians.
