GETTING NOWHERE FAST
"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don't much care where –" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.
"– so long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation.
"Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."
Clearly, the Cheshire Cat never met any of the current Democrats in Congress, who prove beyond a doubt that they have no intention of getting anywhere; and will be working hard to make sure we all go nowhere fast over the next two years.
Standing ovation by Dems for the lawmaker who hid illegal cash in his freezer. (i.e., not going anywhere on ethics reform. Is anyone surprised?)
Barney Frank accuses the Bush Adminstration of "ethnic cleansing" in...New Orleans. (i.e., not going anywhere with increasing civility or diminishing partisanship. Is anyone surprised?)
Biden: White House just postponing the loss of Iraq. (i.e. , don't bother trying to win in Iraq, we can't afford to have you be successful. Is anyone surprised?)
Dem letter to Bush: We strongly urge you not to do this or that but have absolutely no ideas about what you should do (i.e., our only suggestion is, of course, to surrender. Is anyone surprised?)
They are, of course, completely mad. And, while I don't know about you, I don't want to be around crazy people.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
ARGGGGGGGG. It is going to be a long two years.
