Congress To Use Emoticons for Votes on Bills

WASHINGTON - In an effort to appeal to the younger viewers of C-SPAN, members of Congress have decided on abandoning the traditional "Yea" and "Nay" for the "hipper" :) and :( .

Once a Congressman decides his vote, he must text his response, which on television shows up on a graphic next to an advertisement for Red Bull.

There are some negative reactions to the decision, however.  Considerable blame has been attributed to the Democratic members for the decision, but one Republican poses a question.

"What is a text?" asked Sen. John McCain (AZ).
