I just called and said "There's a Republican revolt going on int the House Chamber and I wasn't seeing much coverage of it." I got a run around on it. Was told several times "There are no cameras on now. Cameras are not allowed." I objected, politely, that the story could still be covered.

He seemed mildly irritated that I would question that and asked if I wanted to talk to (name garbled) and I said yes. Got a phone tree that led to leaving a recorded message. I did...

"There's a Republican revolt going on in the House Chamber. I understand that the cameras are turned off. You can still cover the story. Thank you."

I called the Whip’s office. The young lady that answered the phone sounded downright giddy! Basically, I told her it’s about time we do some “grandstanding” of our own.

i assume they will eventually. they sounded kinda harried. if you call the number (212-301-3300 Breaking News Desk) someone will pick up right away.

again, they cannot feed live and have to hand off tapes and upload them or wait until it's all over but that will take too long. keep calling them!

The news coverage is soooo frustrating! A stupid car can run through a wall in someone's apartment in Hackensack and we see coverage live, for hours. But, let the Republicans show a little gumption and stage a sitin in the House and all is quiet in the vast wasteland.

Now we’re talking! At least camera crews will be there if the police start arresting people, as it appears from Rep Hoekstra’s blog may actually happen at some point. Can you imagine, film of a whole troop of boy scouts being arrested for wanting to watch the people’s business from the gallery of the people’s House?

Update (1:27 pm CDT) Another email from a Hill insider:

“Floor is full of staff and visitors. All cheering.

Members are even cancelling flights.

Chanting vote now.”

Update 4@1:10pm CDT An email from a Hill insider says, “We’re here for the haul. Blunt just called in to order pizza.” Nice.

Update 3@1:01pm CDT Politico reports:

Republicans are literally hugging each other on the House floor. Rep. Don Manzullo (R-Ill.), not normally known as an distinguished orator, just gave a rousing speech, accusing Democrats of stifling dissent. He referenced President John Quincy Adams, who returned as a House member after being defeated in his bid for re-election as president. Waving his arms and yelling, Manzullo brought the crowd (including a lot of staff shipped in by GOP leaders to fill up the place), and he left the floor to hugs from his colleagues. You don’t see that up here every day.

Further, see below the fold for the latest, which you won’t want to miss, from Rep. Nuñes (R-CA).

Update 2@12:47pm CDT: The New Media-savvy Rep. John Culberson (R-TX) is Tweeting and broadcasting via Qik from the House.

Update@12:17pm CDT: The Whip’s office just sent the following email:

House Democrats are no where to be found. House Republicans are on the Floor willing and ready to work to lower the price of gas at the pump.
