Leaving aside the speed reader racing through a bill, back to those senators holed up behind that closed door, going through that same bill and combining it with another bill to make it an even thicker bill.
We had a camera on the speed reader. But no camera on them, because no one can see them. They're behind a door. A door that isn't opening and just leaves us wondering.
Until you realize the door is more than a door, isn't it? It represents a process that was supposed to be open, but isn't. Shielding politicians who vowed not to include any illegals under this plan, but have. Gathered in a room that was supposed to represent all points of view, but won't.
That door tells you a lot about this approach and about Washington itself. Vowing not to be in the car business, but is. Or promising to get out of the banking business, but is not.
Politicians who say they're not out to run those businesses, but are now setting pay at those businesses. Politicians who can't police their own books, now telling others how to police theirs. And politicians who'd sooner cut a break for themselves, than lasting relief for the people who put them in office -- an office whose door is closed and whose occupant is clueless to a growing tide of folks who want in on the debate.
But apparently are deemed too stupid or loud to be part of that debate. So they're not. They're on the outside looking in. Only imagining what politicians inside are working out.
Because the door is shut. Just like the minds of the people meeting behind it are shut.
It's enough to make me say: "Oh, shut."
