What Will a Democratic Super-majority Mean?

The Wall Street Journal has an excellent editorial out today outlining some of the legislation that died in the last Congress because the Republican minority in the Senate was able to keep it from coming up for a vote. I fear the Dems may win the 60 votes they need to overcome the threat of filibuster....look for legislation like to come forward in the Obama/Pelosi/Reid Administration looking something like this.

I'm sure that American business will do as well under the rule of the Gang of 3 as white farmers have done under the Mugabe regime.

What is going to happen sometime next year when the Islamic terrorists realise that the majority of Americans who are not felons, who are not homeless, and who actually pay income taxes; might actually appreciate them crashing a jet into Capitol Hill.

And if the jet happens to be loaded with lawyers, all the better.

I saw this article earlier this week, and it vexed me. I’m terribly vexed. What’s one of the first orders of business likely to be in an Obama Administration’s first 100 days? Silence dissent of course. The easiest and most politically expedient way is by reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine.

The Left continues to be flummoxed by the success and influence of talk radio. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and other commentators can arguably take credit for rousing public opinion against recent big-ticket issues, such as amnesty for illegal immigrants as well as the embarrassing defeat of the initial draft of the $700 billion bailout package. Rush, et al, have used their respective bully pulpits to rally and mobilize conservative opposition effectively on a grassroots level on a variety of issues for years, a fact not lost on the Left. And with a Republican party all but castrated come November, talk radio may be the Right’s last line of defense.

The Revolution will not be televised, nor will it be broadcast over the radio airwaves.
