Update on the updated update: STUPAK CAVES

Update on the update:

First hat-tip item: the work of military chaplains in Afghanistan, from the Sacramento Bee. A post to truly inspire.

Next hat-tip, a surprisingly informative 90-second version of how the American House of Reprehensibles came to be voting on health care today [talk about your "servile work on the Sabbath!]:
