Bad sit-in

Is this what we have come to? The elite of the elite — members of Congress — now believe that an appropriate response to legislative gridlock is to hold a useless sit-in on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.

One wonders if such a tactic would be acceptable if the Democrats retake control. Will a sit-in by Republican members on, say, immigration reform receive a chorus of applause and front page coverage?
