Stopgap spending bills, again

"The Senate on Thursday cleared a stopgap spending measure to avoid shutting down most federal agencies at midnight Saturday. The measure - now ready for President Barack Obama's signature - would give Congress until Dec. 18 to finish seven incomplete spending measures that were supposed to be wrapped up by Sept. 30."

Remember when this type of stopgap spending measure was front page news, and cited as proof of Congressional incompetence?
