Over the cliff?

These Capitol Hill cliff-hangers can fascinate, or anger, the nation, but they also often make for some fun photography. There's something pleasant about spending a weekend or end-of-year holiday on the Hill as the drama unfolds.

According to today's stories House Speaker John Boehner, seen above headed to the White House, has given up on his divided House and handed the initiative to the Senate. Meanwhile protester Rives Grogan provided an exciting interlude when he began screaming anti-abortion slogans from the Senate visitors' gallery (and this gentleman has the voice to do it). Mr. Grogan's made something of a career of this, disrupting the Senate previously in June and interrupting a pro ballgame in October by running on the field with a sign endorsing Mitt Romney.
