100 Hour Countdown

The clock is ticking for House Democrats, but it's hard to tell what time it is. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was touting a plan to push six bills through a Democratic House in 100 hours or less as early as June of last year. She's reached the halfway point — in fewer than 20 hours, according to her count.

But just as the official clock for a basketball or football game stops for time-outs and commercial breaks, Democrats aren't counting the minutes spent on business unrelated to those six designated bills.

Let's keep score, time worked in 2007 (through 1/11/07):

Headless Blogger - 80.0 hours

U.S. House of Representatives - 17.8 hours
