When I was a kid, I loved visiting my mom at work because she had a candy drawer full of full-sized candy bars. Apparently, the U.S. Senate has a rough equivalent, a “candy desk” hiding in the back row of the Republican side.
That Senate candy drawer came in handy for Rand Paul as a source of sugar and calories during his filibuster. Everyone should have a candy drawer!
One thought on “Senate Candy Drawer”
Candy always helps me stay up for 24 hours when I’m doing my yearly blogathon for charity. So yeah, it would definitely help with long filibusters too! I didn’t get to watch the filibuster process, so I wasn’t aware of this.
