One small hope:

Even the the Democrats got control of the house and senate, W still has his Veto.
Since the Democrats don't have the numbers to override him, we were in that lovely state called "Grid Lock" - and you know what gets done.

Any honest spirit of compromise seems to have been destroyed. The venemous rhetoric, though first started by the Bush Camp in the 2000 primaries (Ask McCain if he's willing to remember his family being slandered) - but it has finally spread beyond to the Democrats (Clinton vs Obama supporters not willing to except the winner unless it was their candidate).

With 300 Million Americans, we surely can do better than either of these two.
Unfortunately, with a slight adjustment to the figures, it reminds me of 2004.


How can this be? When a candidate is criticized for graduating from Harvard. When the opposition VP is consisdered 'educationally well rounded' for spending her college years in five different colleges in order to manage to graduate. When speaking as though you were an illiterate is considered an assest - then how can anyone wonder why there's such a mess?


I am thinking of running for Lord-Emperor in 2012 - hopefully I can count on your vote.

There will be no Vice-Lord-Emperor - however, you may admire my concubines from afar.
