Rep. Mike Honda, for one, is apparently exhausted. Need proof?
C-SPAN noticed the 73-year-old Honda counting blue donkeys in his sleep Friday during a discussion about breaking the longjam over Homeland Security's budget.
In the video, Honda appears to have been awaken by fellow California Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard's introduction to speak on the House floor. However, Honda then squeezes his eyes tightly together, cocks his head to his right shoulder and is out, again.
Soon, thereafter, a gentleman, possibly Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) walks in front of Honda's seat and momentarily startles Honda out of his slumber.
For his part, Honda acknowledged his moment of sleepy time in response to a tweet from a C-SPAN reporter. "Yes, I'm tired of the GOP playing games with out national security," joked Honda in a tweet.
During Honda's re-election campaign, San Jose Inside highlighted Honda possibly falling asleep during a community meeting in November 2013. However, video of that incident was less than conclusive. Instead, Honda may have been merely resting his eyes for a moment since the alleged naptime clocked in at under 30 seconds.
