House and Senate Whips

Not long ago, as M and I were listening to radio coverage about congress, the subject of majority and minority whips came up. M asked their purpose, and all I could remember was some vague idea about "whipping up" support for the different bills. Then, lo and behold, my old favorite, Slate, decided to do a column on that very topic. I especially like the image of the whip standing in the doorway with a literal thumbs up for the bills the party supports.
