You know, I kind of like this fact. I didn't want the Republicans feverishly at work making new law after new law. If they had to be there, I wanted long filibusters and thoughtful -or even self-indulgent- discourse chewing up hour after hour.

I was rooting for the Dems to take the US House so that we could have gridlock for the next two years. I really didn't want them winning the US Senate, but fine- now maybe we'll see Bush's veto pen!

THIS IS AWFUL!!! Like Mike Kole I had looked forward to house vs. senate gridlock, but now the Dumbocrats are going to work longer and harder. OUTRAGE!!!

Every bill they pass and get signed into law RESTRICTS FREEDOM. Each new law creates unintended consequences. The harder they try the worse they make it. Now the only hope is the veto pen of President Bush. AAAARRRRGGGGHHH! We are doomed.
