The curtain administration? As in the Iron Curtain administration? I like that, it is pretty accurate. Thanks!

What hasn't Pelosi gotten through the House? And anyone who can count heads knows that 60-votes-on-paper isn't the same thing as 60-votes-on-the-floor. The whole health care debate meanwhile is between the liberal wishes of the liberal Democrats and the conservative wishes of the Blue Dog Democrats. No one really knows what the wishes of the reactionary Republicans are, because they aren't even in the game. As far as actual ideas go, they are just taking up floor space over on the right side of the Senate chamber...

Aw...torpedoed before I had a chance to ask how the sheepherding was going. Anyway, Reagan not only knocked the debt over $1 trillion, he knocked it over $2 trillion, and by the time his buddy Bush-41 went bye-bye, it was over $4 trillion. Voodoo economics at work...

Cealing set the tone. Too bad headers can't be edited.

Which is exceptionally disappointing when fiscal sobriety is what's most lacking in our nation. I wish you missed the tempering advice of fiscal conservative majority more than you do.

Uh...no. It was the democratic controlled congress that failed to implement the promised spending cuts that did that.
