Citing security concerns, two senators who sit on the Congressional committee in charge of inaugural ceremonies appealed on Tuesday to the mayor and city council of Washington, D.C., to reverse a decision to keep bars in the city open until 5 a.m. during inauguration week.
Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the committee chairwoman, said she had “grave concerns about the unintended consequences” of the plan approved by the city last week to extend the hours that bars and restaurants can sell alcohol.
Seriously, I’m so glad I have cool Senators now. Jim Webb would never bitch about this because he’s too busy polishing his collection of guns and telling Bush to mind his own goddamn business. Also, he would probably be drinking whiskey with the people until 5am, unlike Princess Feinstein.
