The Congressional Christmas Tree Lighting was last night. For Hastert, he lamented that in nine years as Speaker, that this was one of the duties he most looked forward to because it began a season of hope. It seemed like a somewhat sad event for him since it was his last time to light the Tree.

As if things weren't bad enough for the Republicans, when Hastert pushed the button to light the tree, all assembled looked up to see a BLUE Christmas Tree!

Apparently, GE donated the lights to the tree. The donated lights were red, white, and blue. But, the blue lights completely overpowered everything else. I'll be on Capitol Hill tonight and will definately be checking this out! I'll get a picture if I can, so check back this evening to see if I was able to.
