Naming Names in the 109th

Don't call the 109th Congress "do-nothing." They sure named a lot of buildings. CNN reports:

"Of the 383 pieces of legislation that were signed into law during the two-year 109th Congress, more than one-quarter dealt with naming or renaming federal buildings and structures -- primarily post offices -- after various Americans."
Three-day work weeks, the least time in session in decades, and most of last year's budget left unfinished.

I'm sure we can all come up with a few choice names of our own for this Congress. The Capitol may be built of granite and marble, but it's sure been infested with a lot of goldbricks. (CNN)
