The Day After
The rules are, whatever the Democrats have is theirs and whatever the Republicans have is negotiable. Sort of reminds you of the diplomatic conversations between Kennedy and Krushchev back in the 60s.
Talking about being thrown out of office, maybe we should keep our eyes on those still in office for another couple of months. I know it's not traditional for lame duck sessions to produce anything really useful but you never know with lowlifes like Reid and Pelosi. Dogs-in-mangers to describe these people is being unkind to dogs.
Something strange happened right here in River City. Although the Republicans nearly ran the table in the Montana state legislature, that was not the case in Senate District 25 which failed to return long-serving Roy Brown to the State Senate, giving a very close contest to Kendall Van Dyk, a young fellow apparently not needed on the ranch and of no particular distinction. Odd result. I do remember one of his campaign ads in which he appeared with a smiling Pres. Obama. Of course we know that close contests tend to go to the Democrat in Chicago or Detroit or indeed any fairly large city but could that be true right here in River City. Do we need to worry about who counts the votes?
