Gotta Watch: Sleepy politicians


In light of Vice President Joe Biden’s recent napping episode caught on cam here, we thought we’d dig up some of our best naptime videos featuring your favorite sleepy politicians. Just like us, politicians also get tired. However, most people wouldn’t be napping in public like some of these politicians. Perhaps they should look at ways to encourage themselves to have a good sleep every night, then they wouldn’t need to nap like this! Maybe they just require a new mattress? If they’d just look at Simply-rest for example, they could see a wide range of different mattress reviews. This can make it easier to find the right mattress for them, allowing them to be well-rested for the next day. It is important politicians are well-rested, especially when they are supposed to be engaging in important talks and decisions impacting the whole country! Although, everyone needs a nap every now and then. Even you reading this now! So, that being said, if your mattress is due an upgrade, then you might want to take a look at this guide to ideal beds in a box online. We have all had to buy a mattress at some point but finding a way to transport a mattress to its new home is not always easy which is why mattresses that come compressed in a box are often the most convenient choice.
