March on Washington DC, BYOR ... Bring your own rope


I got a laugh out of this piece from the Wall Street Journal this morning:

Telephone calls and email messages are flooding into the Capitol, overwhelming the phone system and computer servers Tuesday morning after President Barack Obama urged voters to call and email Congress last night to support the Democrats’ debt ceiling plan.

An internal email sent to U.S. House Offices noted "House Telephone Circuits Near Capacity” and told users, “Due to the high volume of external calls, House telephone circuits serving 202-225-XXXX phone numbers are near capacity resulting in outside callers occasionally getting busy signals.’’

In addition, some congressional Web sites started slowing down and had trouble loading shortly after Mr. Obama’s speech last night.

I think our President would have been better off to have invited Americans to March on Washington DC.   The bottom of the invitation should have indicated ... BYOR ... bring your own rope.   If he had done this,  there would be a number of Republicans running for the hills this morning ... never to be seen again.

North Carolina deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
