Byrd Catches a few ZZZs on the Senate Floor

Click here to see the video. This is fresh footage from yesterday. Of course, who could blame him? Having to sit there listening to Harry Reid would put me asleep too.

The Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call reported today:

“Senate Sightings ... Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) sleeping in his chair on the Senate floor at approximately 3:35 p.m. Tuesday, apparently not excited by whatever Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was talking about. Byrd's nap ended when Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) began talking.”
