Congress as circus; that Romney getaway; and a Loretta Sanchez video (read-this roundup)

What’s the Loop reading this morning?

Strange days — The Washington Post’s David Farenthold explores Congress’s anatomy of dysfunction. Under his microscope, it looks a little Dada-esque: hearings about hearings, debate over catfish and last-minute legislating.

A very Romney vacation — In case you missed it this weekend, staff writer Phil Rucker’s piece on the Romney summer vacation might make you feel a little better about your own family getaway. Mandatory attendance, brutal competitions and matching outfits? Uh, we’ll just be on the hammock, thanks.

Blowing off steam — And if you had to bet which member of Congress has created a video to the meme-tastic Carly Rae Jespen song “Call Me Maybe,” you’d never put the odds against Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.), right? Smart move.
