Just A Little Sweeter

Earlier today, I received a package in the mail from the White House. In recognition of the efforts made by the various bloggers to get the Coburn-Obama federal spending database legislation passed, the White House offered to send us official copies of the signed bill once the government had printed them. The offer took me a little by surprise, as I was unaware that could be done. I ordered two copies.

Figuring to frame them, I went to Michael's and shopped for the materials. Actually, I first asked about a custom framing solution, but when the estimate came to around $350, I thought it sounded like the kind of government programs we hoped to stop with this legislation. Instead, I found a way to do it myself and bought a frame and some backing paper.

While we measured the printed bill -- it comes on 10 x 15 sheets, so it's not easy to frame -- I took a look at the actual text on the two sheets. The bill had George Bush's signature (a printed version, of course) as well as the signatures of the leaders of the two chambers of Congress. Denny Hastert provided the signature from the House, but can you guess who signed for the Senate?


Ted Stevens. Ted "Bridge to Nowhere" Stevens. Ted "Secret Holder" Stevens.

Victory tastes sweet indeed.
