What's to Lose?

The Democrats have retaken the House, Senate, and Gubernatorial offices. In an election in which exit polls made it clear that this was a nationalized mid-term, voters across the country delivered a severe message to the bloodied Republicans left in Washington -- "Son of a gun, better change your act!" In exit polls yesterday, 60% of voters said they were opposed to the Iraq war amd four out of ten said that their vote was intended to be a vote against the President. Corruption was also revealed by the exit polling as a crucial issue to many voters. Independents broke heavily for the Democrats. All of this is clear to everyone, but one.

The miserable failure in chief has scheduled a press confab for 1:00 today. He will say that he is "lookin fowood to aworkin wit the new leadership". But what he will mean is, "I don't care what the good folk in America say, full steam ahead, hehe, yasee".

He will fail to recognize the demand of the American people for a change of course in Iraq; he will refuse to see the election results as a complete repudiation of his small-minded, incompentently admininistered policies; he will endorse Rumsfeld, again.

Sometime in late January or early February, 2007, he will be startled to learn just what Congressional oversight the Consitution intends. He'll see things he has never seen before -- like White House subpoenas.

Oh boy...I hope so!

I would love Speaker Pelosi to become President Pelosi!

That would put them over the edge for sure!

I guess Dumbya is going to have to give up all that "signing statement" shit too.
