Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Hello Bloggers! I'm still on hiatus, but I want to wish everyone in the blogosphere Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! I will be visiting friends and family in my hometown of New Orleans - to potential burglars, my house and pets will have a sitter. :) Anyway, I journey on to good food and good times! Go Saints! I hope you guys have great plans too.

Btw, it looks like our optimism involving the Democrats and their ability to pass real reform (health care, financial, etc.) was misguided at best. I don't know about you guys, but I've decided that Joe Lieberman is public enemy #1. I also feel the Progressive Caucus is incapable of playing hardball. Finally, I think Barack Obama and Rahm Emanuel are huge pussies. Change my ass!

The whole bunch make me sick, especially considering how much is at stake.

The Republicans are the worst of the worst, but unless something big changes soon, I will no longer consider myself a Democrat. I will re-register in early 2010 as an Independent and refuse to donate any more money to the Democratic Party. The whole system is just too corrupt in my opinion, and they don't deserve my support anymore. Feel free to try and talk me down, but that's the way I feel today.

I say let's forget about our pathetic political leaders and try to find some joy in our own lives during this holiday season. We have no choice really, since nothing good ever seems to come out of Washington anymore. I hope we can all find some peace despite the bitter disappointment.

I hope you guys have a great holiday and a fantastic New Year!

I agree with you that health-care reform has been a huge disappointment, but let's not forget that the Democrats have accomplished a great deal since taking power. Remember that in practice there are only two options -- government by Democrats or government by Republicans -- and if we don't have one we'll have the other.

The fundamental problem in the Senate is the filibuster rule which requires 60 votes to get anything done, so that even a party with a 58-40 majority -- clearly a mandate from the people -- has great difficulty getting things done against a determined minority opposition. We should focus on supporting Tom Harkin's effort to get the Senate rules changed. Until that happens, 40 Republicans plus one troublemaker will be able to pull the same crap with every new major reform that comes along. Even if Lieberman is gotten out of office, there will always be bought-and-paid-for politicians.

Have a good time in New Orleans.

It's a damn shame the way things have gone and are still going. it's also an indictment on the voters that they can't see through the lies and corporate influences that infect the whole process.

Have a good New Orleans experience, and go Saints too, I have adopted them for this season, since my Kansas City Chiefs suck, but they'll be better next season.

What is it with you Dumbocrats? you really don't give a rip about health care you only care that something is passed regardless of the cost or the outcome.

Tell me infidel what has the Dumbocrats accomplished other than spend the country into debt that it will take generations to pay off.

I think you will see a lot of Dumbocrats voted out of office in 2010 the American people are finally catching onto their lies and BS and especially after the great leader said we would go broke if health care was not passed and then have a Dumbocrat come along and say well that wasn't true.

With this regime it is one lie
