A Lesson on Power...

Main Entry: 1pow·er
Pronunciation: 'pau(-&)r
Function: noun
Usage: often attributive

Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French poer, pouer, from poer to be able, from Vulgar Latin *potEre, alteration of Latin posse -- more at POTENT
1 a (1) : ability to act or produce an effect (2) : ability to get extra-base hits (3) : capacity for being acted upon or undergoing an effect b : legal or official authority, capacity, or right
2 a : possession of control, authority, or influence over others b : one having such power; specifically : a sovereign state c : a controlling group : ESTABLISHMENT -- often used in the phrase the powers that be d archaic : a force of armed men e chiefly dialect : a large number or quantity
3 a : physical might b : mental or moral efficacy c : political control or influence

In their criminal pursuit of supremacy, duh-bya and his political minions forgot, or had never learned the limits of power and the hazards of arrogance.

The voters just taught them that lesson - and showed them there is a power greater than either themselves or the deity they pretend to worship.

I've always like to watch the "high and mighty" be brought down...mostly because of the interesting noises that they make as they fall... That being said, I wonder if the now lame duck and his entourage will turn like cornered animals and become even more dangerous to this country than they have been to date... I suspect they might, and sooner rather than later. Bush, Rove, Cheny, and Rice are not people that are used to losing...they've lost big and it would seem that they're in for more of the same...I think this small but salient fact makes them very dangerous indeed.
