The Senate webcasting camera -- which of course was up and ready to go BEFORE the session started -- is once again up and ready to go when the Senate convenes this morning. The link is HERE. That page also has a link to the House audio feed and the Senate audio feed, I guess for those who don't want to look at the back of the senators' heads.
Here's a tip to slweepy senators: Be sure to nap with your face down on your desk rather than leaning back in your chair. That way if the camera catches you, you can claim you were just studying revenue projections.
And remember, folks "Any political use of this stream is prohibited." Even if your senator stands on the floor and calls for higher taxes, less money for veteran services and says "the children" can go to Hell, you can't use the video in an attack ad when that senator is up for re-election in 2012. As President Nixon used to say, "That would be wrong."
