Because the media is liberal-biased?

Actually, I think we have a true "perfect storm" of shit brewing.

Evil Nancy Pelosi took over the Speakership with all kinds of big talk - remember "the first 100 hours"? And, she accomplished... uh .... nada. A big "swing and a miss". A lotta "politics as usual" and arguing about the size of planes. So even her supporters think she sucks.

The rest of the all want to appear centrist with the presidential elections coming up, so they're flip-flipping between "Bush lied, kids died" and "we can't just pull out of Iraq overnight". Ineffective.

The are trying to figure out their next move that keeps their conservative base happy, appeals to the disenfranchised moderate liberals, and distances them from Dubya and his posse. Much sound and fury - and little to no progress.

With this level of non-leadership, it's a damn good thing we have a strong, vibrant, expanding economy, and peace. :miff:

I'd be surprised if a lot of Americans could tell you what happens in Congress...
