We Did It!

We threw the bums out!

We are absolutely thrilled that the newsies are calling Virginia for Jim Webb. We have taken both houses of Congress. Let the hearings begin.

There is so much to do in the next two years. We hope that honest elections are high on the list of things to accomplish. We never want to fear that our votes won't count and that our precious democracy has fallen to dirty tricks, robocalls, Diebold paper-less ballots, purged voters, and intimidation. This is one civil rights issue that must be resolved before 2008 elections.

We are contentedly happy to let Speaker Pelosi decide what's on the agenda. We've heard her interviewed several times on Wednesday and were impressed with her articulate and balanced approach to the tasks before her. It will be a glorious day when we first see her seated behind the President and next to the Vice-President. A woman, a grandmother, and a Democrat.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'.
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.
