I'm From the Government. I'm Here to Help.

Why exactly do the Democrats have to wait until Scott Brown arrives in Washington to get back to the pressing business of doing nothing? Can't the earnest pursuit of no meaningful legislation continue while Brown loads his backpack, futon and mini-fridge into the back of his pickup and heads down I-95 to his first week at Senator sleepaway camp?

The Senate should be able to spend this week doing nothing with a 59-40 Democratic majority and then when Senator-elect Brown arrives next week they can seamlessly transition to doing nothing with a 59-41 majority. That seems like it would be more efficient use of government resources and in this weak economy, efficiency is the key.
