The creature from the Black Lagoon paid Capitol Hill a visit this week, as D.C. institutions like C-SPAN and Speaker Nancy Pelosi celebrated their birthdays. Plus, Sen. Mike Lee roasted the Green New Deal resolution with a poster of Ronald Reagan riding a velociraptor, and Reps. Markwayne Mullin and Ann McLane Kuster clashed over a certain word that starts with the letter “S.” Also, while it was technically last week during recess, Roll Call is thrilled to wish the Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network (C-SPAN) a happy 40th birthday! Thanks for letting us borrow your footage to make dumb congressional blooper reels.
