The Hirohito Watch, Spotty edition

 In a shameless rip-off of Billmon at Whiskey Bar:

This Could Be Fun

Last Tuesday's election results were not what we were hoping for, of course. [italics are Spot's] Still, the next two years could be fertile for us on-line commentators. The Quote of the Day comes from this morning's Washington Times:

Senate Democrats emphasized the need for Republican cooperation. "We really need bipartisanship," said incoming Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin, the Illinois Democrat who helped lead the filibusters of President Bush's judicial nominees.

It strikes me that it's a little late in the day for the Democrats to start thinking about the need for bipartisanship. [as opposed to "Two Terms I Have a Mandate Bush"?]

Meanwhile, later today the House Dems will most likely select Jack "Unindicted Co-conspirator" Murtha as Majority Leader. Yes, this could be a rewarding two years for us pundits. [didn't happen, of course]  Posted by John at 08:38 AM
