Well, I'll Be Darned...

In just the past couple of days, the Senate proposed the most pork-tastic omnibus spending bill we've ever seen, and then withdrew it after seeing that it had no chance of passing (even in the lame-duck Congress!) – and the GOP-Obama compromise tax bill passed both the Senate and the House with overwhelming bipartisan majorities.

I think I could be forgiven for thinking I'm having some kind of a dream.  I'm not sure if it's a nightmare or a good dream, but it surely doesn't seem like something that could happen in the real world!

Some interesting commentary here and here...

    Of course, the really sad thing is that we actually feel grateful when congress doesn't steal a trillion dollars when we should be seeing them in jail.
