Tubular, man--more reconciliation fun

As I mentioned in my earlier post about how the Republicans in the House managed to stick in a rider that de-funded the incandescent light bulb ban, Congress can pull a Dirty Harry to the Prez and include things in a last minute budget bill that he cannot veto because the Government would shut down.  Well those crazy kids in the House are at it again.  This time in an bill that extends the payroll tax cut, they included a law that requires the Obama Administration to decide within 60 days whether they are going to approve the construction of the Keystone Pipeline.  In an election year.  Go ahead, Prez, make my day.
