WOOF, baby!!

Okay, just to rev up the gloating for those of us who weren't feeling sufficiently revved, perhaps, Shakespeare's Sister reminds us just how frigging full of...hubris...these fuckers have been, linking to a WaPo article from last year:

DeLay himself drew the line sharply the day after the 2004 elections. "The Republican Party is a permanent majority for the future of this country," DeLay declared. "We're going to be able to lead this country in the direction we've been dreaming of for years."

Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform and a leading figure in both the DeLay and Bush political operations, chose more colorful post-election language to describe the future. "Once the minority of House and Senate are comfortable in their minority status, they will have no problem socializing with the Republicans," he told Richard Leiby of The Post. "Any farmer will tell you that certain animals run around and are unpleasant. But when they've been 'fixed,' then they are happy and sedate. They are contented and cheerful."

I wouldn't know, but maybe you want to discuss that with Rick Santorum, (G)Rover. I understand he's going to have a lot of time on his paws pretty soon. Along with lots and lots of other nice puppies to play with!

Man bites dog, indeed.

Yes, there's no denying that there's some sweetness to savor in all this...

"Down goes Santorum! Down goes Rumsfeld! Down goes Allen! They're not getting up! They're down for the count!"

well wrt Allen, it seems like it ain't over till it's over.

i mean i am cautiously optimistic here, but given everything that's gone down these past few years i take -nothing- for granted till it's signed on the dotted line. and even then.

but Talent's gone, and probably Burns, and fucking Pataki's been replaced by Spitzer -routing- the R whose name i can never even remember and hey! don't have to! ...and South Dakota, and a majority of governorships, and of state legislatures, and a few other things, woo.

also: first socialist senator! who knew?

o yah, and also frigging Pomba and a number of other really egregious anti-environmentalists.

"So long, screwie! See ya in St. Louis!"

Ahhhh.... I am so glad Santorum is out. That man is crazier that Tom Cruise on Oprah.

DeLay was on CNN a few nights ago claiming that the Democrats didn't win; the Republicans just didn't get out as much and so they lost.

I was not sure how the interviewer kept a straight face or didn't interrupt him and ask him if he was on crack.
