Boehner is on the House floor reading the entirety of the 300-page amendment added to the Waxman-Markey energy bill -- an amendment that was added at 3am this morning. Boehner started about 30 minutes ago. Break out the popcorn and soda, folks.... this could go all night.

UPDATE: Boehner only read portions of the bill, which took him a little over an hour. Some Republicans were disappointed; Boehner had said he would read the whole thing, but ended up skipping passages that were less interesting, and only reading the ones his staff had highlighted. It was a good faith effort, though, that did draw attention to the fact that nobody had actually read what was being rammed through...
