What this photo from Tuesday tells me is that Sen. Charles Schumer walked around the corner, saw Sen. Lamar Alexander talking to reporters and froze. Alexander had just announced on the floor that he would be resigning as Republican Conference chairman, and he had stepped out to take reporters’ questions. Both men are conference leaders for their respective parties, and Schumer is just completely frozen — like the statues beside him — absorbing the news.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
