republican congress going out with a whimper

The outgoing GOP leadership apparently plans on a quiet lame-duck session this week. I guess they won't be authorizing new forms of torture, cutting new checks for the richest 5% of Americans, diagnosing Terry Schiavo's medical condition using a grave-camera, or granting immunity to themselves from prosecution for crimes -- criminal and political -- they have committed.

The 109th Congress will have spent the shortest amount of time in session of any Congress in at least 50 years. Given what they DID do when in session, I guess we should be grateful they spent so much time away from Washington.
