Message to Congress

Dear Democratic Majority in Congress;
Okay, you barely won, despite the slam-fucking-dunk handed to you. Now do something - don't just squabble amongst yourselves. Restore Habeas Corpus, outlaw torture, end warrantless wire-tapping, get the deficit under control, peal back tax breaks for Paris Hilton, and do something - anything - different in Iraq. P.S. there is no "war on terror" because terror is a tactic, not an enemy.

Dear Republican Minority in Congress;
Suck it.

Many regards,
Davy

I want to repost this in my journal if it's ok with you. You took the words right out of my mouth:).

By all means.
And hey, Rumsfeld resigned!

Kinsey is opining that the next two years are going to be filled with acrimonious gridlock in Congress. Not a fan of that, but the theory has a ring of truth to it. : (

I have a feeling you're right, actually. But honestly, haven't the last six years been filled with acrimonious gridlock?

I'd say not-how can a party which did whatever it pleased while controlling both Houses of Congress as well as the Executive brannch be described as operating under gridlock?

Well, what has Congress actually done for the past few years? Other than rubber-stamp the President's wishes, and approve two Supremes they've accomplished basically none of their agenda.

I'll bet they're all breathing a sigh of relief that they didn't nix the filibuster right about now...

True, but I think the theory is that even less is going to get done than before. Truly frightening!

The favorite phrase I've been walking around uttering the last 12 hours or so is "Suck it, Santorum"... not far off.

I love this post. :)

Did you just ask the Democrats to do something? Keep on dreaming...

Right, well previously I asked the Republicans to stop being hypocritical, power-hungry, corrupt assholes. So it only seemed fair that I make a request of the Democrats, too...even if it's just as likely to be ignored.

You might want to also ask them to stop being hypocritical, power-hungry, corrupt assholes, too. It only seems fair.

I will when and if it happens. First you have to have power to abuse it though...

Don't worry. Madame Speaker has already said, within the first 100 hours, they'll raise the minimum wage, enact all the policy changes the 9-11 Commission wanted and do other shit I forget at the moment because I'm still hungover from the fact Rumsfeld was fired.

(BTW, this is Jess' ultra-liberal boyfriend.)
