Obvious sentence of the day

Not graphics related at all, but I laughed when I read this (USAToday):

If a Republican replaced any Democrat in the Senate, a 50-50 tie would be broken by Vice President Dick Cheney, giving Republicans the slimmest of majorities. Such a majority wouldn’t only be critical in party-line votes, but also in selecting committee chairmanships and controlling Senate procedures.

The last 50-50 Senate also involved a South Dakotan, former Sen. Tom Daschle, who was head of the Senate Democrats at the time.

South Dakota became a state in…1889. I’d say that the chances that the last 50-50 Senate included a South Dakotan are pretty high.
