House Speaker John Perzel is so MIA.
"The Speaker is unavailable today and probably the rest of the week," writes Al Bowman, the GOP spokesman-in-chief, in an email to Mario Cattabiani.
Is he meditating? Is he milking cows? Is he twisting arms and taking names?
We don't know, but we miss ya, Mr. Speaker (for now). Send proof of life.
We do, however, know what Majority Leader Sam Smith is up to.
Hunting. Yes, deer hunting with his son.
Steve Miskin, Smith's spokesman, reports that the younger Smith took a shot but missed.
Good to know. But what about that majority his father's trying to hang on to?
"I think it’s too premature for Democrats to come down here and measure the drapes," Miskin said of the Capitol’s plush Majority Leader’s office suite. "It’s not over until it’s over, and it’s not over yet."
Is it just me, or does he sound like Bluto from Animal House?
"Over? Did you say 'over'? Nothing is over until we decide it is!"
