Gone and back again

So for people who were not aware (understandable due to the short duration of this incident) Keith Olbermann was suspended Friday for having donated to three of the campaigns this year, which is a violation of NBC's policy for journalists.  Well, as of last night per ABC news the suspension is already over.  Now if only we could see some of the Fox idiots suspended there would be justice in the world.

The Storm is Over and now...nothing gets done

Well the 2010 midterms are effectively over and what have we gotten?  A house controlled by climate change deniers and ultra-conservatives who want to start impeaching the President (no real reason why) and shut down the government; A senate that is now narrowly controlled by the democrats which will only be able to pass legislation if the completely abandon the filibuster; and a white house that is going to be spending the next 2 years trying to do stuff with people who are insane...

Yeah we are all screwed.  The republicans have already laid out their strategy for 2010, which is blame the Dems since nothing they pass will get out of the Senate then take us back to Bush-anomics.  They'll probably try to defund Health care, which won't pass then force a shut down when no budget they do will be acceptable.  The only way anything will get done is if they suddenly become sane and actually end up being willing to compromise so they can govern, a change in behavior I do not expect.  So what are we Progressives to do?  I don't know yet, but I'll be thinking about it.
