Moving Away From PoliticsDecember 21, 2009 at 9:36 pm | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment
I gotta say, Democrats finally getting this health care thing down in the Senate has cast a wonderful spell on me. I’m not counting my blessings just yet. They still have to actually vote for the actual bill on Christmas Eve, and then of course reconcile with the House bill and then of course vote on that and the finally send it to President Obama’s office to sign into law. But there is little now to actually stand in the way of this being done. And I feel this is a good enough time to step away from politics, at least for an undetermined time. We’re moving well away from the ugliness of the Bush years (what an awful decade) and into something vastly better. There are still many challenges (the stupidity of the followers of Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin) to the country, but Republicans have truly put themselves in a bad place (and are doubling down, amazingly, on this stupidity). I don’t have much more to say of substance. So Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
