Farewell to a glorious two thousand ten
     When tea stimulated the voters, who then –
No longer content to be ruled by their betters
     Who’d made them a nation of destitute debtors –
Went straight to the polls and kicked out the big spenders
     With some GOPers among the offenders.
Now Congress may even eliminate earmarks . . .
     Oh, what a big difference the change of a year marks!

The Corner

The one and only.
