Overriding joy!

I have covered many elections, but I do not recall ever seeing the overwhelming joy that is in this room at this time .. Republicans have been in the wilderness for a long time and now, they have won a great victory.

There is singing and chanting and everyone seems to be hugging each other. It’s as if your team has won the Super Bowl and the World Series at the same time … As the band plays Springsteen, the crowd waits … anxiously … for the governor-elect to appear.

    Fred – Now that the election is over, and before the Dems start to propose all their lame duck garbage, it’s time to revisit the Health Care “Reform” legislation that’s starting to percolate down in WDC. Why don’t you post your ideas on that front so we can flog something besides Corzine/Chrisite/Daggett.
