"Hmm, fabulous house, well-behaved kids, sisters-in-law dead, luxury sedan...woo hoo! I hit the jackpot." - Homer Simpson
Yes, I am very happy Rumsfeld is gone, but if I were a Republican, I'd be steaming too about the timing. The day after the election?! Bush drove 30+ members right over a cliff - and then he punches out. Well, a lesson to be pondered from retirement. Though it couldn't happen to nicer people than Rick Santorum and George Allen. Wth them gone though, who will think of the children?
I am also very happy that Steny Hoyer won the post of House Majority Leader. Hopefully Pelosi snaps out of it. Murtha is a scumbag. I hope she keeps Jane Harman as leader of the House Intelligence panel too, and at a minimum, not appoint crook/Congressman Alcee Hastings.
That being said, that's the kind of problem I like the Dems to have. A GOP congressman was quoted as saying that "everyone on our side is giddy." Well Rep. LaHood, I'm happy to keep your minority-ass giddy indefinitely.
As Homer would say, "Eh, close enough."
