"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Dems taking over....

They'll run a clean house.....unh huhn

CNN shares the convenient "fact" that:

"Exit polls showed that rising discontent over the war in Iraq and a spate of corruption scandals helped drive voters in November to hand Democrats control of both houses of Congress for the first time since 1994."

"And a national poll released this week showed Democrats have strong support for nearly all the measures they want to pass in their first days in charge."

Changing mandate results? The mandate is what they want it to be.

Harry Reid said:

"Our efforts are going to be to work in a bipartisan basis in an open fashion to solve the problems of the American people." Although not in the first 100 hours I guess....

Nancy's having a party and you're not invited!

From Time Magazine:
"Who can begrudge Pelosi her four-day "coronation," as right-wing wags have dubbed it? The events themselves are hardly ostentatious: there's a mass, a tea, and prayer service. The most raucous thing on the schedule is a concert by Tony Bennett. Add a tote bag and it'd be a PBS telethon. Indeed, the demographic-pleasing tenor of the events reeks of a self-conscious desire to highlight all soft-focus interest groups that come with the Pelosi package: Italian, female, Catholic, grandmother."
The "party of inclusiveness" is having a '"People's Open House" party by invitation-only.' The "Peoples Open House" is about as incongruous an example of what the Democratic party is. Oddly the media doesn't see any issues with this....odd.
