Amongst the heirs to Washington and Lincoln in the US Senate came two senators from New Jersey, looking to raise a resolution praising Bruce Springsteen for selling records and living a long time. Normally stuff like this passes through with a unanimous vote, which made it all the more surprising that the Republican leaders in the senate even refused to allow the senate to consider praising the Boss.

Not because they thought that this sort of thing was really more appropriate for Entertainment Tonight rather than the debating hall of the nation's government. Oh, no, it was a purely partisan move to punish Bruce for supporting Kerry in the 2004 election race.

This is the democracy they're busy exporting worldwide, you know.
