Oh Hurrah! Oh Joy!

Allen conceded. Burns conceded. Katherine Harris and Rick Santorum went down in flames. The Democrats control the Senate.

Rummy’s gone (OK, Gates is a lousy choice for a replacement, but still, Rummy’s gone).

The Democrats control the House.

Rove was wrong.

Diebold didn’t steal another victory.

For the first time in six years, I have a glimmer of hope for my country.

Off to join Taihae running naked through the streets and shouting Woohoo with Dive. James and I have exchanged cyber high-fives. Way to go US!

  1. I’m an amazed at the way Pelosi and Bush have to do joint press conferences and shake hands. We’ll see if they actually can work together. The idea of Bush saying things like, “we’ve got a lot of work to do” makes me wonder where he’s been the last few years. It’s not new work, just new people to do it. Jeez.

  2. Woo-fucking-hoo!

    I’ve been out all day with Peahen and her stripey tights (see post tomorrow), and at Japanese classes, so I’ve missed the news today.
    Just home and flicking over to your blog and you give me this wonderful news!
    The whole planet is one great big smiley tonight.
    It’s waaaay too cold to run around the streets naked, so I’m off to bed with what’s left of tuesday night’s alcohol.
    You truly are the bearer of tidings of joy!

  3. He’s insane. I hope he realizes that his days of absolute power are done.

    Pelosi would be justified in seeking impeachment for him (what he’s done is a lot worse than what Bill Clinton did), but she’s taken that off the table. I think it’s a good sign, actually, that they intend to do something other than fight.

  4. Woo hoo woo hoo whoo-fucking-hoo!

    Glad Peahen was able to give you your stripey tights fix.

  5. You realize that if Bush and Cheney were to die, then Pelosi would be president? I’m not wishing death on anyone, of course, I just think it’s interesting. I’m trying to be political even though it goes against my grain–Old K said I was a simple soul, so I’m pretending to think deeper here. Is it working?

  6. Hmmm…. I don’t wish death on anyone either. Hmmm….

  7. i JUST put my clothes back on when I learned the dems control the senate. Then I had to invent a host of other exuberant activities to do naked. I’m quite tired.

  8. Hope you enjoyed yourself.

  9. I just don’t get Our Favorite Senator from the state of ? Where is that again? You know… the guy that’s been pickled for the last 40 years

  10. Oh, I think his last words were “esta la victoria”!!!!
