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!
