Now that I've had a few days to take industrial strength showers and remove the slime and mud from the mid term elections, it's time to bow to the often maligned American Public that Churchill accurately observed ".. will always do the right thing, after they have exhausted all the alternatives".

The electorate did exactly what Bush and the GOP leadership refused to do, enforce accountibility. Poor performance and ineptitude was rewarded with pink slips. Policy failure, limited imagination, hyper expansion of the national debt, rampant corruption and debasement of the principles and spirit of the Constitution was found to be intolerable and deemed cause for dismissal.

In effect, the GOP was tried and sentenced for fraud and all the spin that Rove and company could brew ended up as flat as frat house beer on Sunday night.

Frank Rich's take that the GOP has relied on high production values to create a political entertainent is apt. But the GOP couldn't fool all of the people all of the time and eventually the ratings plummeted: "Bush & Company" has been cancelled and if we're lucky, it won't be picked up in syndication.
