Pretty fucking lame if you ask me.
With a 28 seat majority in the House and a likely 1 seat majority in the Senate (I predicted this privately 2 months ago) one thing is certain. George Bush is a lame duck. His agenda has been derailed. His I-only-need-to-worry-about-Republican-thoughts brand of governance is no more.
Finally some sanity has reentered the American consciousness.
What do we have to look forward to?
1. A real Iraq policy. I truly hope we start bringing our boys home. They've been shot up, blown up, and downtrodden for nothing for way too long.
2. Daylight will shine on the cesspool of corruption. We will see true government oversight for the first time in 6 years. We'll finally see investigations into the Iraq war intelligence, the corrupt energy policy meetings, the Valerie Plame affair, and on and on and on.
3. We'll finally get a minimum wage hike. How anyone can oppose this is just beyond me.
4. And maybe, just maybe, we won't be starting any more wars as has been feared. We won't be attacking Iran, Syria, or some other country with people that look different than us.
What else? How lame will this duck be? He's always been a lame president. What are your agenda items you would like to see in the 110th Congress?
