We have to admit that we’ve long been obsessed with the stellar charts that sometimes end upon the House and Senate floors. So imagine our delight upon discovering a tumblr dedicated entirely to showcasing the best in Congressional cardboard posters.
Floor Charts includes screenshots from C-SPAN showing members with various charts that presumably prove policy points of view. The blog is heavy on the Sen. Chuck Grassley content—lots of dragons and still frames from “Groundhog Day.” But there are some choice charts from other members.
There's Sen. Mary Landrieu's simple blue poster with giant yellow letters reading “MAIN STREET," for instance. And who could forget Rep. Luis Gutierrez’s side-by-side of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez? Not this reporter, that's for sure. Here's a clip from that choice moment:
