...3, as in "the number of times that John Boehner lets the tears flow"...
In a rare occurence, the US House of Representatives will meet tomorrow, a Sunday.
The unusual scheduling is ostensibly to give the House a chance to pass a measure that would enable the country to avoid going over the "fiscal cliff".
However, while a number of measures are on the tentative agenda, no one truly expects much to be done tomorrow - the Republican caucus in the House has turned political self-immolation into an art form, and their fiscal cliff negotiating position ("stop me before I shoot myself!") may be their pièce de résistance.
While they still could surprise me (and everyone else, including themselves) and put aside ideological posturing in favor of actually, you know, *governing*, I think the only real question left to ponder is -
Who is going to cry more tomorrow, Cardinals fans or Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner?
For the record, I think that Cardinals fans will cry more often, but I'm not counting tears of joy over the end of a truly painful season.
