Fast Fix: Sleeping in the Capitol? (VIDEO)

By Chris Cillizza

Can sleeping on the job actually be a good thing?

More than a dozen newly-elected Members of Congress are putting that theory to the test, choosing to sleep where they work in hopes of sending a message to their constituents that while they in Washington, they are not of Washington.

Some ethics groups have protested the practice, insisting that Congressional offices shouldn't double as "dorms" or "frat houses". But, the sleep-overs have continued nonetheless.

In today's episode of the "Fast Fix", we explore whether Congressmen -- they are all men -- sleeping in their offices is smart politics or empty symbolism.
