as expected, that other guy who lost to ted finished off his ramblings at our hotel last night. as i watched the election 2006 coverage from my sofa, the commentator indulged me with the following statement "and we are here live in the basement of the H." no, dear reporter, do we call my venue and my meeting space, a basement. what is wrong with people. OR do i look at it from the perspective that that other guy was losing and this was his way of setting the tone. either way, i consider myself and my H as a switzerland or a holland. neutral. and in my morning news snippets:
Democrats swept to power in the House on Tuesday and were threatening to take control of the Senate amid exit polls that showed widespread American discontent over Iraq, nationwide disgust at corruption in politics, and low approval ratings for Bush.
Many said they thought the big gains by Democrats signaled the beginning of the end of Bush's reign. The next presidential election is in November 2008.
One opposition lawmaker, Hafiz Hussain Ahmed, said he welcomed the election result but was hoping for more. Bush "deserves to be removed, put on trial and given a Saddam-like death sentence," he said.
