This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
The Washington Post website has a useful database, where you can check up on all your Senators and Representatives and see who voted how on which issues. The link to this one, HR 3222, Making Appropriations for the Department of Defense for the Fiscal Year Ending September 20, 2008, and for Other Purposes, arrived in my e-mail inbox a few hours ago.
Not only can you see how many Republicans and how many Democrats voted for or against a bill, but you can sort them by state or gender, both possibly useful information, and by boomer status, which doesn't strike me as useful so much as interesting.
And yes it's true, you can even sort by astrological sign. Congress as internet dating site. Fitting, somehow.
You can skip all the stuff in the middle if you want, but I did like the end of the video.
