Ted Kennedy's worst nightmare

I just can't handle the media reporting on this... They've got Obama defeated in 2012.

The spin is, "the democrats are reaching too far", the country's not with them. I'm telling you, the democrats are acting too much like cowards... Since when does a 19 seat majority in the senate indicate presidential impotence?!?

When did 60 votes become the required number to pass ANY legislation?!? Whatever happened to a 51 vote majority

The composition of the 109th Congress (2005 - 2007) was as follows: Senate: R=55, D=44 House: R=231, D=202

The composition of the 110th Congress (2007 - 2009) was as follows: Senate: R=49, D=49 House: D=233 R=198

The composition of the 111th Congress (2009 - 2010) is as follows: Senate: D=60, R=40 House: D=257 R=1708

UNTIL, Scott Brown is sworn in and then it will be Fifty- NINE to FORTY-FOUR... Apparently, a filibuster will be law of the land and this means that somehow the MINORITY is in charge.


Why are the democrats such ball-sacs? look at this: Apparently Jim Webb (D- Virginia) believes that the other 59 elected senators that are either Democrats or caucusing with the Dems are not in power, not allowed to govern because this screwball that got elected in the state that every conservative LOVES to hate (MA) needs to take his seat and filibusterer the shit out of the majority party's platform...

Where's the political memory?!? Having only a five sear majority did not prevent "W" from doing whateverthefuck he wanted... I just don't get it? Why are the democrats such ball sacs?!?

It is hard to throw your heart and money and energy behind the political party that gets beat up by the Christian right for being everything from blasphemous, to "anti-religion" to evil, but then the members of that party spend most of every day turning every cheek- like a bunch of pale, skinny boys getting beat up in an ally. I just don't get it. What are they doing?!?


On the home front, we are tired. I've been hacking my way through the last couple of weeks and I'm getting sick of feeling sick. The cumulative effect of the holidays and the change in sleep patterns for both boys, plus JB's surgery and the few days of NO sleep that brought has been amazing. This weekend, we got 2 full nights of sleep and still, we were like, "huh... what's going on?!?"

It sure can make a woman feel weak. Maybe if I just stop talking about how tired I am the fatigue will improve... Worth a try, right?
