Quiet day, except for:
* Petulant Republicans, who'd rather kill a nuclear treaty than let the Senate run on a timetable other than their own. Here, of course, a mere 34 (sorry, wrote 35 incorrectly originally) senators can block action.
* And did anybody else hear about the staid Little Rock professional firm that brought in a midget and a stripper for the office Christmas party last week? I'm not sure even the 1960s gang on "Mad Men" would have come up with that.
