Direct from the Twilight Zone...

“On Nov. 3 … there will be in Washington, D.C., a Democratic majority in the House and a Democratic majority in the Senate. That will be the case. If it weren’t illegal, I’d make book on it." - Vice President Joe Biden - August 20, 2010

Ummm. Yeeeeeah. *inching backwards*

Oddly, Joe's statement is technically true but not as he intended it. The massive new Republican majorities on the way will not actually be seated until January 2011 so on November 3rd the lameass lameduck economic-wrecking-ball Democrat Congress will still haunt America.

Good Lord, these people are so out of touch with reality it almost casts doubt on their mental stability.

Joe's ridiculously wishful statement that Democrats will even retain the House makes the "Recovery Summer" fantasy and the bogus "jobs saved" metric actually seem reasonable by comparison.

But, please Joe, by all means keep going.

While I'd be delighted to see the Democrats lose their majority in both houses, the Republicans didn't do us good either when they were in power. And for all their talk, I really can't see them rushing to undo any of the damage if they do take control of Congress.

I'd rather see a split where neither party controls both houses. In my, hopefully not too unrealistic, dream scenario for this election: Republicans take control of the Senate, and enough Libertarians get elected to the House that neither faction of the Incumbent Party has a majority there. That way no legislation has any chance of passage unless it's clearly necessary, And Obama will have to be much more reasonable in making appointments and treaties if he wants them confirmed.

As for Obamacare and the rest of the rest of the socialist idiocy that was foisted upon us this session: it's all unconstitutional anyway - let the States nullify it, and/or let the courts deal with it.

There are plenty of unconstitutional laws that have been foisted upon us and stuck. I'm not all that hopeful about Obamacare being struck down.
