The picture that sums up what everyone in D.C. is thinking this Friday

Senator Al Franken (D.-Minn.) tweeted out a Throwback Thursday photo yesterday that pretty much sums up how many people in D.C. -- and likely around the United States -- feel today. In D.C., things have been incredibly slow because of the congressional recess. Add to that the fact that many people are on the road or celebrating Easter or Passover, and things feel mighty quiet on the political front all around the country.

The weather is also improving, finally starting to grow more spring-like -- albeit in a painfully slow fashion.

In light of that, Franken's ode to good weather and grilling feels especially fitting. Yup, we are definitely ready for grilling season too.

Happy Friday!
