It was a Dark and Stormy Morning…

Washington awoke to a dark morning today with an unusual amount of lightening.

“I feel like sort of ghosts of Congress past are weighing in on this conversation this morning,” said C-SPAN host and President Susan Swain, who sat before a black backdrop – otherwise known as the storm.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough also mentioned the stormy D.C. weather on “Morning Joe.” He told a guest, WaPo‘s Ezra Klein, that the storm was making him look like he was on another program.

“We have gone from CNBC prime time to the Charlie Rose show,” Scarborough cracked. As everyone chuckled, Klein laughed and tried to look behind himself without turning around (an impossible task) and replied, “You guys are making me feel like I want to turn around!”
