The Punch yet lives

Thought you'd heard the last of the Punch Heard 'Round the World when a Senate committee decided to drop the matter last week?

Think again. Today, mere hours into Alabama's 2008 legislative session, 19 Democratic senators approved a resolution allowing the Senate to vote, if it later chooses, to require that any lawmaker who hits someone on the floor be accompanied by a security guard. You know, just in case any lawmakers happen to do that sort of thing in the future. But such a hypothetical lawmaker could have the restriction lifted by finishing anger management.

In other, surely unrelated news, a group of legislators today stripped Sen. Charles Bishop, R-Jasper, of most of his committee assignments. When Bishop left the building shortly thereafter, he was, to put it charitably, displeased.

One day down, 29 to go. Learn to love the gridlock.
