Time For Bipartisanship and National Reconciliation...


I've been having fun waggling my fingers in my ears to every Republican I pass today:


Although Pelosi assured listeners just before the election that hearings and impeachment were not on the top of the Democratic agenda should they win the House, she was asked earlier to comment on the biggest change that might result from a Democratic win. Her answer should chill Karl Rove right down to his testicles today:

"Subpoena power."

You know, it's not just that Bush's gang are -- well, maybe "fascist-wannabe thugs" is a little too inflammatory, how about "wise and concerned statesmen"? -- intent on turning the U.S. into a banana republic, complete with:
  • Torture chambers (Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, extraordinary rendition)
  • Imprisonment without trial (for any "enemy combatant", whether a US citizen or no)
  • Orwellian lies ("we've never been about 'stay the course'")
  • Pervasive surveillance (warrantless wiretaps, Total Information Awareness)
  • A looted treasury (anyone remember the budget surplus the last guy left?)
  • Not to mention their very own legally untouchable El Supreemo.
It's that they were so blindingly incompetent (Katrina, FEMA, DHS, TSA, cutting the military success in Afghanistan off at the knees in order to botch Iraq beyond saving, and wrecking the Army in the process) and still got away with it for so long!

Well, they'll still get away with murder. But one hopes that some of the fun will be gone now, as they're forced to look over their shoulders all the time.

Yeah, yeah, I know, we'll have to work with the red folks to get anything done. Just give me this one day, OK? We've been verbally spat on and had decorated wounded war veterans in our ranks accused of cowardice by gutless wonders who pulled strings to stay out of harm's way, and blamed for the actions of nuts that put even Robertson and Dobson to shame for six long years. Before we put the liberal nice face back on, just give us one good swing. Take that wid' ya, Rummy!
