One of the Best Congressional News Releases ... Ever

By sheer coincidence, I ate at an Asian restaurant last night and received a fortune in my fortune cookie that said "Leaders are readers."

Here is the entirety of a news release from the office of U.S. Representative Jeff Flake (R-Arizona):

Congressman Flake Releases Statement Regarding His Vote Against Honoring the 2560th Birthday of Confucius

Washington, D.C., Oct 28 - Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents Arizona’s Sixth District, today released the following statement regarding his vote against H.Res.784, a bill “honoring the 2560th anniversary of the birth of Confucius and recognizing his invaluable contributions to philosophy and social and political thought.”

He who spends time passing trivial legislation may find himself out of time to read healthcare bill,” said Flake.

This is great. I couldn't agree more with Rep. Flake. I haven't gotten around to reading the bill myself, then again, I'm not a congressman. :)
