The gridlock over immigration legislation capped an exceptionally trying week for Republicans, who face unexpectedly stiff challenges from Democrats for control of the House and Senate in the midterm elections.
unexpectedly stiff?? unexpected by whom? anyone who's had their head up their ass for the last six years, or up their ass and buried in the sand for the last two of those six years?
to me, the only unexpected thing is that it took this long for a majority of the country to get fed up with this bullshit. i should hope that it's only a matter of time before the reactionary, ignorant, grandstanding, biblethumping, bullshitting, hypocrisy-riddled howler monkeys that seem to dominate the republican party get their walking papers.
i should also hope, though, that the democrats can manage to cobble something halfway worthwhile to say and do before the elections actually get here, and not just assume that they can coast to victory on the cresting wive of republican greed and incompetence.
i'm not holding my breath.
