A Banner DayWell, not only have the Democrats taken control of the House and look like they are on their way to taking control of the Senate as well but this past election day marks several firsts, namely the first black governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick, the first female speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, the first Latino senator elected in New Jersey, Bob Menendez among other firsts. Also, an unprecedented 67 openly gay and lesbian candidates endorsed by the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund have been elected to local, state and federal offices in 2006.
But perhaps the best news of the day is that DONALD RUMSFELD, U.S. DEFENSE SECRETARY IS STEPPING DOWN!!! The buzz is that Rumsfeld (shown here after his corneas were burned watching last night's election returns) will not be doing so voluntarily.
As my mother said about the news today: "the only thing that could make this day better is a picture of Cheney in ladies' panties." I'll do a google image search, mom.
