The United States Congress Is Laughably (And Horrifyingly) Vulnerable to User ErrorUS Congresswoman Lois Capps found out the hard-and-super-embarrassing way that the House of Representatives doesn’t allow take-backs. Capps was the only person in congress to vote against championing the release of a Christian minister in Iran—a bill she co-sponsored—because she pressed the wrong button during the vote. And then wasn’t allowed to fix it.

It’s hard to feel too too bad for Rep. Capps, since you should probably be paying attention during a vote on a bill you co-sponsored. But shouldn’t we maybe install some sort of ARE YOU SURE mechanism to the decisions our national leaders make? [The Tribune via The Daily What]
