Too Close To Call? Democrats and Dubya Equally Inept
By: John Lillpop
Give Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and other liberal Democrats their due. These enemies of America have mastered the art of pissing off the American electorate with spectacular efficiency and dispatch.
In just over 120 days, the party of terrorists, illegal aliens, perverts, higher taxes, and infanticide has accomplished what took Duyba more than five years to perfect.
According to a new poll, the U.S. Congress is now held in the same contempt as is W. Both are approved of by a mere 35 percent of the electorate, which means that most of us wish a pox on both their houses.

Of course, Republican congressional members fare no better than their traitorous colleagues on the other side of the aisle.
But Democrats now hold majority status in both the Senate and the House, and are therefore responsible for setting the agenda of those respective bodies.
Democrats, then, should be held responsible for the following situations created or exacerbated during their â€œwatchâ€ since early January:
* Soaring gasoline prices headed to $4/per gallon;
* Escalating nuclear danger in Iran;
* Increased violence in Iraq and Afghanistan;
* Lack of peace between Israel and the Palestinians;
* Deterioration of U.S.-Russia relations;
* Looming domestic recession;
* Gun violence on American campuses;
* Crash of U.S. housing market, including subprime mortgage fraud
To be perfectly fair, one should also credit Democrats with the election of Nicolas Sarkozy as president of France, record stock highs on Wall Street, and the apparent peaceful resolution of the North Korean nuclear kerfuffle.
But fairness sucks, so letâ€™s stick with higher gasoline prices, falling housing prices, and war just about everywhere when evaluating the performance of the leftist goons now occupying Washington, D.C.
When asked about the new poll, Speaker Pelosi waxed philosophical:
â€œItâ€™s just not fair for the American public to lump we Democrats with an alcoholic, dyslexic, war-mongering cowboy. We promised the people a â€œNew Day in America,â€ and were it not for George Bush, that day would be here already.
â€œBesides, it takes time to get used to being in charge. Harry Reid is still learning the tricks of the trade, so the American people need to cut us some slack.â€
It is obvious that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats deserve our pity.
Being in charge is so much more time consuming and complex than sitting on the sidelines and throwing rocks without being responsible for anything except obstructing the majority party.
But with Pelosiâ€™s intelligence and political acumen, she should have her new role down pat by the first Tuesday of November, 2008.
Just in time to get out of the speakerâ€™s office and back to her job as a rock-throwing cheerleader for leftist nut cases!
