House waves the red, white and blue (RSVP)

These feel-good measures will have even the most cynical chanting, “USA, USA . . .”

Our favorite among them is the expected House vote Tuesday on a bill reaffirming “In God We Trust” as the country’s “official motto.”  The bill also encourages the display of said motto on all public buildings.

It’s just what we needed.

Now, we’re just waiting for the House to announce that it’s voting on the Apple Pie Act of 2011.
