Remember that Reagan commercial from 1984, "It's Morning in America?" I think it needs a new voiceover.

It's morning again in America. Today, more men and women will go to work than ever before in our country's history. With interest rates and inflation down, more people are buying new homes, and our new families can have confidence in the future. America today is prouder and stronger and better. Now, why would we want to return this corrupt Republican leadership to Congress?

George W. Bush — Leadership that ain't working.

I'm happy. After these last 10 years of the GOP sitting on their fat keisters in the House shoveling my tax money into their Bridges to Nowhere, the DeLay-Hastert-Abramhoff corruption machine has been drop-kicked out of power. After these years of a Senate only willing to rubber-stamp the President's wishes instead of doing the power-checking they're supposed to do, they are about to find themselves either evenly split or handed over to the Democrats. Donald Rumsfeld, possibly our worst Defense or War Secretary ever, has been sent packing. The GOP is talking about conciliation and compromise. And Pelosi's not an idiot -- she knows how to work the deals and horse-trade like a Speaker of the House is supposed to do, instead of, you know, just being a sockpuppet for a corrupt representative from Sugar Land.

There won't be impeachments. There won't be any blood. It will just be an agreement on how to get Iraq moving, get the budget deficits under control, and working on keeping this country moving. Terrorism will be defended against in a sensible manner, instead of by invading a country with few quantifiable terror ties and an inactive WMD program.

So, now we look at the two great possibilities for our nation -- either we move beyond the failed leadership and towards the great political change awaiting us after 2008 that may just lead America to its Silver Age, or we'll all be dead from the illegal immigrant Al-Queda cut-and-running terrorists destroying us with their soda-bottle nuclear weapons and socialized medicine.

It's morning in America. And it's a rising sun. Unless it's a mushroom cloud.

  1. I'm less optimistic about the elections. The Dems didn't run on anything, they have no plan, they simply "won" over the most incompetent group of Redumblicans we've ever scene. The Dems didn't win, the Redumblicans just lost. Super - OK - now we know we can beat a dead, burried and retarded horse... champaign for all! For our next act we'll be racing a grandma in her wheel chair... we're unstoppable!

    Problem is that the Dems have no plan and two years to turn around a no-win situation in Iraq with a Prez that's not going to budge on core issues. Throw in the very good chance that we'll be in a full scale recession by 2008 and I think we'll see the Redumblicans ride right back in on a ticket of "look what the Dems did for the last two years, they raised taxes, killed the economy and Iraq is more screwed up than ever".

    We'll see...
