Anyone want popcorn?

As an update to the whole Congress/Election issue, there are a few thoughts:

1) Wait until the Representatives and Senators who were duly elected in November to take office. If anyone thinks things are bad for the Dems now, wait until they find out that they can, in fact, be told to shut up if they continue to posture, preen, and grandstand. I doubt they'll stop, and the biggest arguements to come out of Congress this coming year will be largely done by Republicans, amongst themselves. That's a shame, because the Dems could concievably put forth good arguements without screaming, as they are doing, at the top of their lungs.

2) The list of Democrats who are playing the role of village idiot in the House have among them: Maxine Waters, Barbara Boxer, Cynthia McKinney, Dennis Kucinich, and others. Here's a list of the Representatives: Hey, if they want to make a fool of themselves, be my guest, but do it on your own time, not my taxpayer money. They're free to exercise their freedom of speech, but I also have a freedom to A) turn the channel and B) demand a federal refund.

3) I take small comfort knowing full well that President Bush will go down in history as one of the greatest American Presidents, very much in the same vein as Roosevelt and Regan are viewed in the present. Waters? McKinney? Conyers? They'll be nothing more than an anthill on the paths of history. And just like Ozymandias, they'll be swept away, their kingdom nothing but forgotten ruins.
