A Full Dem Congress

Even yesterday I thought this was impossible; today it seems inevitable.  The change is exciting.  And scary.  What are they going to do?  Not much, probably.  In ’92 the Gingrich Revolution fizzled into nothingness.  This year’s Pelosi Parade will probably do the same.  But not until W gets his face rubbed in a dish of Iraq-flavored crow pie.  She promises “civility and bipartisianship”, but so did Bush and we’ve seen how that ended up.  Perhaps she will actually take the high road, but I wouldn’t count on it.

And who will run the Senate for the Dems?  I haven’t a clue, it’s been so long since they were relevant there?  But Allen’s lost in Virginia and Burns will probably lose in Montana (the bribe-taking doofus), so that’s a reality we’ll have to face.  Yech.

That’s what happens when a party is elected en masse on a set of principles and then fails to follow through on them.  All the Pubs had to do was keep their word and they’d have won this easily.  But that would have been too easy.

Iraq, Islamic terrorism, immigration – the I’s have it.  What will Nancy, et al, do about them?

I don’t know.  Right now I don’t care.  I’m politicked out.
