Happy, clueless Republicans.

After 5 years of screw-ups, deficits, wars, tax cuts for the rich, tax cuts for big business, bungled hurricane responses, corruption, $3.00 a gallon gasoline, leaks, ignoring Constitutional rights, election hanky-panky, outsourcing, loss of jobs, etc., the Republicans think that a few meaningless staff changes at the White House will improve their chances in the 2006 elections.

It's no wonder this country's in the shape that it's in.

Well, good luck GOP, your record speaks for itself.

The recent White House staff shake-up has bought President Bush a measure of
peace with his disgruntled Republican allies on Capitol Hill, who see the new
lineup as belated evidence that the president is finally determined to gain
political traction before the November elections. But they fear those ambitions
may be frustrated by public unease over Iraq and party divisions over spending
and immigration.

Republican lawmakers regard the arrivals of new White House Chief of Staff
Joshua B. Bolten, budget director-designate Rob Portman and incoming press
secretary Tony Snow as more than superficial job shuffling. They interpret the
changes as a sign of Bush's desire to improve tattered relations with Congress
and the media -- key steps that could aid in revitalizing his presidency.

"If this were the NFL draft, these would be some awfully strong picks," said
Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), adding, "I think they're really trying to do something
that is much more than cosmetic. They're trying to make meaningful changes that
will give a new look as well as a new air to the administration."

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
