Post-Election Hangover

Well, no surprises in my local election results: currently-under-investigation Representative Jerry Lewis was re-elected by a wide margin. With the new Democrat majority in the House, I guess he'll lose his plum position as Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee. Last month Lewis came under criticism for firing 60 contract workers investigating spending fraud and waste. We may have lost our chance for a $1 million swimming pool.

Everything looks different today; new, shiny, or, as Stephen Colbert said last night*:
"Tomorrow you're all going to wake up in a brave new world - a world where the Constitution gets trampled by an army of terrorist clones created in a stem-cell research lab run by homosexual doctors who sterilize their instruments over burning American flags. Where tax-and-spend Democrats take all your hard-earned money and use it to buy electric cars for National Public Radio and teach evolution to illegal immigrants. Oh, and everybody's high!"
Let the fun begin!
