2007 Dems Vs. Contract with America

Think Progress has my comments banned, has had for awhile- not sure exactly why. I go there almost every day regardless of their distaste for my perspective (heh), they have a lot of good stuff...

Today they had this graph - which shows how much more effective the Democratic Congress has been than Newt's "firebrands" of 1995, even considering the record-breaking filibustering of the Republican defeatists.

It's a little slow today, waiting on the traditional "Christmas Surge" of the stock market at the end of options expiration. Looks like it may not materialize. Et, tu , Santa?

But anyway, give me some cool links to waste time if you run across anything. Email em or leave them in the comments...

I have to agree with the majority of comments in the thread at Think Progress, this chart means jack shit. Iraq was the one thing they had to get addressed and they didn't. Instead they signed on and became enablers.

Yeah, yeah. Way to burst my bubble. You know me- Iraq is my biggest issue... I still like charts like this to slap repubs with... I wish the Democrat leadership understood that we stand behind them on Prosecuting any and all of the crimes of the Bush administration. They are just scared shitless that being too mean to the Repubs will somehow backfire..
