I don’t know where my keys are!’ And she yells back, ‘They’re in the bowl by the door! They’re always in the bowl by the door!’ And the next thing you know its 3:30. That’s why I say to hell with it.” The Senator’s “Give Me a Friggin Break and Let Me Close My Eyes for Two Seconds Will Yah? Act” is scheduled for a vote on the Senate floor Thursday at 1:30pm, just after lunch.
