    Yes, the GOP won, BUT, they're stupid pants anyway. Very convincing.

Also, I would really appreciate it if the republicans don't go on a civil liberties parade.
    Well in my opinion it isn't so much that they pass a budget or just any bill, but bring forward bills that actual have a shot at being signed. Bringing up bills that have no shot at being signed really doesn't do anyone any good and doesn't show leadership qualities. It shows **** you we do what we want qualities.

    Haha that guy was a "mini-me"!

    That was also one of the most shocking results of the night. Who saw that coming in the very blue Maryland?

    Well, anything beats a lies except an equal or bigger lie. Hope and Change was America getting rope-a-doped.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I wonder if people remember that Ali coined that phrase.

    Can't blame the gridlock on Harry Reid anymore.
    We shall soon see.
    Now it can be blamed on Obama and rightly so.

    Does this mean the country is all of a sudden racist again?

    I mean a majority voted against Obama's policies.
