See, good looking politicians submitting important and highly worthwhile resolutions. That's the kind of politics I like to see.By PATRICK GAVIN | 5/19/10 4:55 AM EDT
While most of Washington was focused on Tuesday's election results, the House was busy doing something else: Passing a resolution about beer.
House Resolution 1297, sponsored by Rep. Betsy Markey, supports "the goals and ideals of American Craft Beer Week."
"We've got quite a number of microbreweries and entrepreneurs that are creating jobs, and we wanted to celebrate that this is a craft," Markey told POLITICO.
"I think beer has been a tradition since this country was founded," said Markey. "We wanted to celebrate entrepreneurship — and good beer!"
