Americans Rejoice Over Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- With Congress beginning a five-week recess, Americans everywhere began to celebrate. "I thought they would never go home", said one ecstatic reveler. "It's about time", said another.

Despite the fact that a number of measures were just signed into law, a new poll just out from the Galloping Guys suggests that Americans are just plain exhausted by the antics that go on inside the Beltway. According to the survey, 52% of those polled say that Congress makes them want to puke, 21% want to break something in anger, 18% have stopped paying attention, 3% enjoys the give-and-take action, and the balance had no opinion or didn't understand the questions. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 27%.

It is clear from these results, that the ceaseless ranting, mud-slinging, posturing, obstructionism, game-playing, and partisanship have nauseated or angered a significant proportion of the populace.

In addition, Conservatives are happy because Congress will take a five-week break from giving away all our money. On the other hand, Liberals are relieved that the spotlight will be off their miserable failures.

President Bush will be at his ranch in Crawford, Texas. Most Americans will be celebrating with cook-outs, get-togethers, vacation trips, or by just relaxing and enjoying the momentary lull.

Let us continue to hope that President Bush will make the "recess appointment" of John Bolton while the Congress Critters are out of town!

It would be refreshing to have someone at the UN representing the real citizenry of the United States. And polls show that more Americans support Bolton's view of the UN than they do the liberal/socialist lefts view of it.

K. Bell,
I agree. And since Bolton's appointment would be for no more than a year or so, let's hope he does some good in that short time.

That's the thing about a recess appointment; too short-lived, unless Congrefs [sic] confirms it after the New Year...which they may or may not do.

Anyway, the U.N. is such a mess, it really ought to go the way of the League of Nations.
(To oblivion...)

YMMV (Your margin may vary...mine did, I got 33% when I measured it...that's over a ton!)

For starts, whale watchers vacationing on Cape Cod may have more spottings with the Tedster being back at the "Compound".

Maybe ByrdBrain will find himself a little closer to "almost heaven", too.

Pelosi can get in touch with her "base", who must be all tuckered out after their semi-nude street theater parade, Breasts Not Bombs, which michellemalkin.com featured over the weeked.

Oh, the places they will go...
