As Jason Linkins wrote this afternoon, the record snow fall in Washington DC over the last several days has left everyone feeling a little... out of sorts. Including Sen. John McCain, who found himself trapped in Washington after a day of Senate business.
The former presidential candidate called up Fox News host Sean Hannity to confide some of his frustrations. "I'm snowbound and going crazy!" McCain told Hannity. "I think about those old trappers that used to winter over, I don't know how they did it."
Hannity responded: "I guess global warming kept you out of the studio tonight." (Click here to watch Colbert rip into this meme and here to watch Bill Nye the Science Guy explain why recent snowstorms don't disprove global warming.)
McCain wasn't the only politician who felt the unraveling effects of Snowmageddon 2010. Sen. Harry Reid told a reporter that he was stuck working at home all week, unshaven and pajama clad.
"Stuck like hell," Reid said. "I'm home in my pajamas, a very nice pair of pajamas, I might add. And I haven't combed my hair or shaved."
