So we’re about at the half way point in the Democrat’s “100 hours”…or are we. Not according to Queen Nancy. This from Yahoo! News:
The clock is ticking for House Democrats, but it’s hard to tell what time it is.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record), D-Calif., was touting a plan to push six bills through a Democratic House in 100 hours or less as early as June of last year. She’s reached the halfway point — in fewer than 20 hours, according to her count.
But just as the official clock for a basketball or football game stops for time-outs and commercial breaks, Democrats aren’t counting the minutes spent on business unrelated to those six designated bills.
So while the House has been in session for almost 48 hours since the 110th Congress was sworn in Jan. 4, the clock on Pelosi’s Web site says only 17 hours 48 minutes have elapsed.
Ok, I’ll bite. Let’s do some math here.
The new congress was sworn in on the 4th of December and have completed, according to Queen Nancy’s official count, 17 hours and 48 minutes of legislative hours. That’s 6 of the new congress doing an average of approximately 3 hours of legislative hours a day. A day equals 24 hours. It would therefore take, in Queen Nancy’s eyes, 8 days to complete 24 hours worth of this congress legislative duties.
For the Republicans to have finished their first 100 days when they took over 1994 it would have taken 800 days according to Queen Nancy’s Fuzzy math…but wait a second, that doesn’t include weekend days which would number around 228, giving us a total of 1028 days for the Newt Gingrich house to complete it’s 100 days. For now, I’ll let the Holidays and football games slide and we’ll leave it at that.
Folks, Queen Nancy’s fuzzy math tells us that the 1994 newly sworn in congress should have had 2 years and 9 months to complete their first 100 days of business.
