I don't always agree with the Chamber of Commerce (they tend to focus on the moolah, often at the expense of other values I hold dear). Even so, I find this article from last Monday quite funny, for so many reasons:
On Monday, the chamber sent out its ratings of all the legislators, based on their votes this session on bills important to the state’s largest business group.Why do you think I find this funny?
In the ratings, 73 legislators – all Republicans – received a score of 90 percent or above. Nine received a perfect score of 100 percent; none were from the St. Louis area.
Failing grades of below 70 percent were awarded to 77 legislators. That group included all the Democrats in the state House and Senate.

Let me know.
In the meantime, I'll be laying on the couch, eating a sandwich, and chuckling to myself.
