So said someone named "Ted" in a comment to my morning post.
While I compliment his sense of humor, I also recall the line, "Many a truth is said in jest."
While there's no disputing my feelings for the Refuckyoucans in Congress, I'm not terribly impressed with the jobs done by Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Steny Hoyer, Jane Harman, and many others.
If Obama is to accomplish anything worth noting, he absolutely MUST do all he can to remove all those listed from their present posts and replace them. As well as remove Joe Lieberman from his posts and bar him from the Democratic caucuses.
Of course this all rests on the assumption that there will be a veto proof majority in the Senate. Without that, I see no hopes for any progressive accomplishments. I see/read/hear nothing that points to the Refucks rejoining the process of government as opposed to continuing with the Trent Lott "strategy" of "obstruct, obstruct, obstruct, and then run on the platform of a 'do nothing Congress.'" It only took the bastards one year to break a record for filibusters that was set over two years. If they can't filibuster... Naaa... they have to show up. It'd be too obvious if they didn't.
