21. We Came Real Close To The Abyss...

Seems few remember those dark days of 2005-06...the rushpublicans not only "won" the Presidential election but also increased their hold on the House & Senate. In the '06 election the Democrats were facing the possibility of a veto proof rushpublican House and Senate. I thank Mark Foley and his Blackberry for saving us from that fate, but Democrats won not because of who they were but because they weren't the other guys. Unfortunately the electorate has a short-term memory and we now face a similar situation where the rushpublican could make gains in the House and Senate that will only prolong this country's decline...if not accelerate it...
