In Search of...some political Christmas miracles

Well, it turns out the lame duck session of Congress wasn’t lame at all. 9/11 first responders will have funding for healthcare (thank you, Jon Stewart), unemployment will continue for those many unfortunate souls still in need of a job, and at long last “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” has been repealed. Oh boys and girls, and children of all ages, it’s a Christmas miracle!

And to boot, the President said he’s persistent and will not give up on the Dream Act, and perhaps he meant it. He did have conviction in his voice, after all. Now it’s off to Hawaii for a little R&R for the man who’s got John Boehner to deal with as Speaker of the House when the new Congress resumes. May God be with President Obama on that one. If I were him, I’d start the first sit down by offering him a Kleenex. But that’s just me.

So it’s Christmas, and along with the political miracles in Washington, D.C., George Stephanopoulos has wished me a happy holiday in response to my email wishing him the same. See, there is a Santa Claus.

Well, it’s time for some holiday baking, gift wrapping, and Christmas movie watching. Here’s hoping the new Congress is as productive as the lame duck one was.

Thanks for stopping by. Please tell your friends.
