Deciding Bush’s potency

Unfortunate AP headline: “Voter Results Will Decide Bush’s Potency.”

With Rick Santorum out of the Senate, who will protect our dogs’ anuses?

Honestly, I will miss Little Ricky, who provided all of us with so much blog-fodder and who made his side look bad every time he opened his mouth. His replacement, Bob Casey Jr., is no friendlier to homosexual (or reproductive) rights than Santorum, but he’ll undercut them quietly, without that hilarious gay panic: the “man on dog” comment, the blaming of sexual abuse by Catholic priests on the permissiveness of Boston (“If you have a world view that... affirms alternative views of sexuality, that can lead to a lot of people taking it the wrong way.”). So yeah, I’ll miss the neckless one; his idiocy was actually a service to the republic.

Katherine Harris is less of a loss in that sense, because mostly when she spoke she only made herself look like a jackass.

Would have been nice to knock out George Allen, but it was, after all, Virginia (state motto: “Sic Semper Macacas”). (Update: sorry, this one is now too close to call. Got a little confused there.)

The prospect of Joe Lieberman even more smugly self-righteous is not a pleasant one.
