I thought it was funny that the way Republicans were going to block the Democrat spending bill was to force it to be read.
"GOP senators, led by Tea Party acolyte Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), had demanded the entire 2,000 page bill be read by the Senate clerk -- a formality that is almost always dispensed with."

Well, if they're going to make an informed vote on the entire thing, they really should read it. And not just speed-reading either, but reading the whole thing with total concentration.
