These guys - Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity, Coulter - they make a living discussing how Democrats are destroying this country. Now that Democrats are actually in charge of something (i.e. the House and very likely the Senate) their jobs will be so much easier! I'd like to offer these guys a snide pat on the back.

I'm trying to figure out how 50% < Dems < 60% means they are in charge of a given branch of government. Considering how often a portion of the Reps/Sens aren't around when votes are cast, how can they still say they'll get their shit done?

As far as I'm concerned, there's still enough of a Rep presence to make it a pain in the ass for either side to get anything accomplished. Gee, same way it's been for the past ~ 10 yrs.....

(sorry, venting)

What sorts of things do the Senate Majority Leader and Speaker of the House get to do, Mike? Smile

From my point of view, that's exactly the way it should be. Only legislation with proper comprimise, research, and hopefully some goddamn sense will actually make it through to law. Well, a libertarian can dream, can't he?

And that's the full extent of the Libertarian Party's powers.

Yeah, good thing I'm not a member of the party.
