Daily Congressional debate in one word

Gabriela sez,

Bush. Energy. Oil. Caribbean? These were the most frequently uttered words in Congress last week, brought to you by a new site, Capitol Words (http://capitolwords.org). Get an at-a-glance view into the daily proceedings of the United States Congress through the simplest lens available – a single word.

Capitol Words displays the most frequently used word in the Congressional Record for every day that Congress is in session, dating back to the second session of the 106th Congress (January 20, 2000).

It is powered by LOUISdb.org, which scraped the Congressional Record on GPO Access. Sunlight Labs also created an API so you can incorporate the word of the day in your applications.


(Thanks, Gabriela!)
