Now the new, improved Congress doesn't take office till the new year, so there's still some time for some last gasps of stupidity.
Like an attempt to get John "I hate diplomacy" Bolton back in as UN ambassador:
Word has just reached me from a well-placed source that the White House has continued to push John Bolton's confirmation prospects as US Ambassador to the United Nations despite the election outcome.
Another highly placed source has informed me that in just a few minutes Senator Lincoln Chafee is calling a press conference to state categorically that he will not support John Bolton's confirmation in the upcoming lame duck session.
The Bolton confirmation will be officially dead in a few minutes.
One last cheer for Lincoln Chafee, who was the best guy in the whole Senate with a R after his name. But we needed that 51st seat, so he had to go.
A lot of the good things that are going to happen with the new Congress will take the form of bad things that don't happen.
