Wake Me Up When It's All Over
One of the frustrating things about actually winning an election is the fact that your candidate doesn't immediately take office. We see the petty annoyances in the US Senate, where President Bush is trying to ram through all the last-minute judicial appointments and a new Secretary of Defense before there's a Democratic Majority he has to deal with. Luckily, procedural maneuvers can block most of those last-minute appointments. You see it in the last twenty four hours of an administration, when the latest political crooks get pardoned by Governors and Presidents alike. Most of all, though, we see it in the form of a crude nightmare this state has been forced to endure for the past four years: Mitt Romney. He's a testament to the notion 'you get what you pay for,' as his work ethic just about matches his paycheck (which is, to say, 'on the house').
Sixteen years of Republican administrations are about to end. I'm finally about to wake up. Is it January 3rd yet?
