THOUGHT FOR A SATURDAY EVENING..

From a comment on an article on The Hill's Blog Briefing Room:

It took two hundred twelve years for the debt to reach seven trillion dollars in two thousand three. Since the Deomcrats were voted into government and took control of Congress in two thousand four and the entire government in two thousand eight they have raised the debt to the present level of fourteen trillion dollars. In the space of six years they have added as much debt as all the other congresses and administrations in two hundred and twelve years.

That's one clean toilet there. I hope we get a good, clean flush ridding ourselves of these spendthrift congresscritters in 2012.

Opie,

I toyed with the idea of something more evocative of the mess in Washington, but then reasoned visitors here would be reading this post over their Sunday morning bacon 'n eggs and opted for something a little less visually "confrontational".

(By the way, tell LL I *almost* fell for his HH-is-a-fairy comment!)
