Silver lining

We always try to keep an upbeat outlook, so I have gone out of my way to find the positive side to the Democrats taking control of the House of Representatives. There are a few very definite upsides:
  • The New York Times and CNN will have much more favorable coverage of Congress
  • Rhode Island Republican Lincoln Chafee lost, and Connecticut Democrat Joe Lieberman won. That is a net gain of two for the GOP.
  • We finally get to see the Democrat's plan for victory in Iraq.
  • Taxpayers will be relieved of the stress of making so many investment decisions.
  • Reduction in attacks on our troops in Iraq, since terrorists fear attorneys.
  • Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum is now available for Supreme Court appointment.
  • NSA agents could soon be freed from having to listen to annoying terrorist chatter.
  • Since a lot of the polling places are in church buildings, millions of Democrats actually went to church yesterday.
  • Democrats can sleep more peacefully, now that they know that Karl Rove does not control everything.
