Republicans Braced for Syria Week at Bibiana

With marathon negotiations on Syria stretching into week two, House and Senate Republicans on Monday took the opportunity to regroup and do a little communal carbo-loading in a back room at Bibiana.

An HOH tipster said GOP lawmakers — including House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia, Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn of Texas and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina —overran the tony Italian eatery on Monday.

The information-starved group appears to be all over the place on the issue. Cantor, for instance, was one of the first to fall in line behind President Barack Obama’s call to action, while Cornyn and Scott remain question marks.

No word on whether the pols reached any type of consensus on whether to risk their necks for another Middle East showdown.

But confidence is high they would all agree that the house-made meatballs (a marriage of mouthwatering ground pork and veal), eggplant-stuffed arancini and squid ink pasta are to die for.
