The House Speaker Vote Is the Best Thing on TV

From a Washington Post story by Karen Heller headlined “The House speaker vote is the best thing on TV right now”:

Our representatives-elect were hamstrung in governance, stuck in legislative limbo as of dusk Thursday, but the fight to become the next speaker of the House — whoever that is — makes for compelling and mesmerizing television. For three vote-thronged days, Americans have been treated to how the scrapple is made.

Or, in this case, not. Lights! Cameras! Inaction!

Instead of the traditional camera seemingly bolted to the floor and stuck on some pooh-bah doing Hamlet to a near-vacant chamber, we were treated to a panorama of views of the House in all its befuddling glory.
