Meetings R Us … movement on the Bush tax cuts as still as the sun

Talk about diminishing the moment, removing the spark.
Yet it was so Washingtonian.
President Obama and congressional leadership agreed today that the best way to resolve differences on the soon-to-be-expired Bush tax cuts would be to hold additional meetings.
So much for the imperatives of the matter. Gulls descending raucously upon bread crusts show more energy.
In a Barnum and Bailey world, they could send in the clowns to every meeting.
Hot air in the Beltway, it seems, is every bit as expansive as my bar tab.
