Senate Constipation

I don’t know if Chuck Grassley’s been having digestion issues, but he rates my quote of the day. From the Senate floor this morning talking about how the Dems plan on doing a package of popular bi-partisan tax extenders outside of regular order:

The Senate is constipated. This legislative body needs a function, a laxative. Legislation needs to circulate through this body in the usual form, like food through your (system)… I’m hopeful that the Democrat leadership can relieve the constipation on legislation in the Finance committee and the Senate just needs to function just like our intestinal system functions.

Is it just me or is he saying the Senate is full of sh*t?
