I Miss America

Joy to the world!

The Democrats are back in control of the House for the first time since, what, '92? What great news to wake up to!

"Dear Democrat-controlled House:

For Christmas this year, I would like to get back Habeus Corpus. I'd also like it if the US would stop torturing people. And can we go back to innocent until proven guilty? I don't want to hear anything about 'giving terrorists the same rights as citizens:' everybody should always have the same rights, including the right to not be kidnapped and shipped off to a foreign country in the dark of night. I'd like scientists and other professionals working for the government to be able to speak freely and to give advice based on research, not on what makes the administration happy. Finally, I'd like to see Guantanamo closed.

Love, your Webcowgirl."

I think the Senate's not going to happen, but I can console myself with the fact that lap dancing is now legal in Seattle. Go strippers!
