Mad Mike's election summary...

Michael Z. Williamson speaks his mind on the recent election results.
Some highlights:

"Pelosi has said she will not try to end U.S. funding of the Iraq war but will pressure Bush to shift course, begin a phased redeployment of U.S. troops and require Iraqis to take greater responsibility for their own nation."

So 1: she's admitting that they really don't have any power to do anything. B) That attempting to do anything will cause troops to die and Dems to be hanged from lampposts, politically speaking. iii. That this was strictly about a power grab and they never had ANY intention of actually doing anything for the country. d] This is kinda what we've BEEN doing the last five years. They're just hoping to cash in on the payoff now that the dirty work is done. See my Footnotes A and 2 below.

Other policies? We have the best economy in five years, after recovering from Bill Clinton's net bubble collapse and his criminal outsourcing of jobs, not to mention his failed eco policies that in part caused the gas crunch. Oh, and Enron? That was under Clinton, too. The Republicans haven't done a great job of fixing things, but they've managed to do some damage control. So the Dems want in to claim credit at the end again (See Footnote 2).

The problem is, even if they GET Bush to go along with their dope-smoking commie policies (here's a hint: go to school and STUDY, like Ms Rice. Bra burnings, draft card burnings and pot parties don't actually teach you anything except that public masturbation is a clever way of getting attention. See Footnote c.) that just means that the next economic disaster will occur sometime around 2009. Who'll be president then? They're hoping for Hitlery and Obama. Good luck. Unless they've already given up on 08. See Footnote IV] PS: a bare squeak in the House, a contested Senate and a few statehouses is not a "mandate" or a "punishment of Bush." It means that as much as you claim things are screwed up, most people weren't actually in agreement. They're giving you an opportunity to prove otherwise, but as we all know you're incapable of doing so, enjoy it while it lasts.
