Na Na Na Na Hey Hey Hey Goodbye
Note to media: Karl Rove is a cheating lieing sack of garbage, not a genius. All his "genius" has done is get us in a losing position in Iraq (while leaving real threats like Iran and N. Korea to run free), generate record deficits, halt progress in science and combating global warming, etc. He's a big fat (well, not fat, he has lost some weight) LOSER. Quit giving him credit he has not earned and does not deserve. I've said it before and I'll say it again: He has nothing but treachery and cheating.
That said, Karl Rove has been helped by a sorry excuse for a legislative branch that deserves to be retired. With 17 seats yet to be decided, Dems have already picked up 28 seats in the House. In the Senate, we are ahead in 51 (as of 1:40 a.m.). We picked up the majority of governors AND the majority of legislatures in the country. Make no mistake, this was a stunning and impressive defeat given the GOP's structural advantages across the board. Their gross incompetence, cynicism and divisive politics has been completely and utterly rejected across the board. America is ready for a positive change and an inclusive government.
The current crop of Republicans has really upset me but I am truly sad to see some decent moderate Republicans go--though they could have done something to reign in on Bush and rightly suffered for it. But, given their incompetence on Iraq, the economy and definitely Katrina, I have only one thing to say:
Cheers to McNerney and those of us who helped canvass for him. Thanks for all your effort and hard work. Democracy is about participation and it has been fun working with so many different people! You all rock:
Here's to a better America!
