Up in the air

It's going on 4 in the morning, and we still don't know who's going to control the U.S. Senate for the next two years. Montana and Virginia are agonizingly close; if the Dems get them both, they will rule the senior chamber, and Cheney and Rumsfeld may as well retire.

Come to think of it, we probably won't know for sure for weeks. There will doubtlessly be recounts in both states, and in Virginia at least, that could take until Christmas. Maybe this gal could help speed things along with her newfound free time.

I was up late, too, Jack. I even tried sending you my instumental cover of "What a Wonderful World" around 1 a.m. but the server kicked it back.
Now I'm up again writing jokes: What do Republicans have in common with Kevin Federline? They both just got kicked out of the House.

I'm going to finish my job and then listen to right wing talk radio all day. Bill O'Reilly's on now and he's very concerned. In fact FOX News might not be America's Newsroom anymore.

I just hope Lars Larson can pull it together. He's got to get ready to fight in the War on Christmas. Be brave, Lars. Santa's counting on you.

On the way home from work last night, I was flipping between Air America and KXL's coverage... I've never heard Lars so dejected in my life. A caller politely ribbed him about his man-in-a-bubble projections/predictions, and the other hosts had to answer for him. Lars was speechless for the first time in his life.

Rumsfeld is out...one down. The writing was on the wall but it is pretty bad when the Army Times, Navy Times, and Air Force Times openly call for the resignation of the SecDef.

Jack you're a psychic!

Wow....best news I've heard today!

Rummy resigning is certainly better news than Pelosi running the House...God help us all.

Yes, I too am concerned about Pelosi. From what I've seen so far, she won't be helping the all-important '08 effort without a fairly serious makeover.

Many politicians have underestimated Nancy Pelosi and I hear they all meet at the congressional retirement home once a week to lick their wounds.

Ask W, he fired Deadeye Dick's best friend on Earth today and was STEAMING about it, on LIVE TV, when he said "I hired Rummy before I fired him" or some BS like that.

Montana went Dem. It's all down to Virginia.

It's like watching grandmasters play chess at a disadvantage. Centrist Americans use the Dems to give the Bush administration their first big, two-handed shove to the chest, and the next day Bush steals back a good portion of the headlines and airwaves with another "bold" decision. As though to remind us that we are not the deciders we all think we are.
As Bobby Fischer knew, a bilious, consuming hatred for your opponent makes a habit of relentlessness. Now, slowly but surely, the tide is turning. Better late than never.

Actually, I wish Rumsfeld had kept his sorry old a*s around. He was a living billboard for the Dem White House bid in '08.

same with Senate, 50-50 would mean another sorry a*s curmudgeon would be on display all the time.

Ho-ly cow. The AP is now calling Virgina's Senate race for the Dems.

You think Karl's going to stand for this? And remember that Katherine Harris has some free time on her hands as well. There will be a recount, and this is only a 7,000 vote margin they have to overcome.

But the military absentee ballots rolling in over the next few days really should be interesting to watch here.

Better late than too early, but better too early than never.
