About Time

We're not headed toward nirvana. The war won't end overnight. Graft, and corruption won't die out.

But what we have now is this - a little bit of fear.

That's right - fear.

The next time some Congressman, or member of the Bush Administration, whether Democrat, or Republican, decides to break a promise, or a law, they might have just a bit of fear that their action will result in some consequence.

And that's what I'm looking for - some congressional investigations.

We're about to find out how much money has been stolen from the U.S. taxpayer since the Iraq war began.

Folks, no matter what your political convictions let's face it - one party rule is not good for the country. We need to have these people competing with each other, and to some extent controlled by each other - otherwise it's like the wild frontier in D.C.

I believe many Republicans refused to vote Republican this year hoping that some of these corrupt people will be exposed through the political war that is just about to begin now.

This also puts some serious stress on Bush's little "Stay in Iraq until Hell Freezes Over" plan. Even Republicans are getting fed up with this "wait until we get around that next corner" crap - it's getting old, costly, and I don't believe anyone is buying it anymore.
