[+/-] And the horse they rode in on

American voters sent President George W. Bush and his gang of thugs called the Republican Party a strong message Tuesday.
It wasn't subtle, it wasn't polite and it wasn't subject to interpretation.
It said: Go to hell. Go directly to hell. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.
Democrats needed a net gain of 15 seats to regain control of the House of Representatives. The final count is still uncertain, but the Dems picked up at least 33 seats - more than double what they needed and that gives incoming Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi the votes she needs to give Dubya and his goons the bung-holing they so richly deserve.
Granted, the Senate is in play but Democrats hold on to slim leads in both Virginia and Montana and wins there give them control of that chamber as well, leaving Bush and the boys wondering if anyone got the number of that truck that mowed them down.
Bush and the Republicans deserved to get run down. They stepped willingly out in front of that onrushing semi called voter anger over the botched war in Iraq and the cesspool of corruption that ruled their party.
