In the aftermath of Tuesday's elections, I'm keeping in mind what I wrote six years ago when George W. Bush won re-election. I'm not married anymore, but I do have two cats who don't care who's in power in Washington. They need to be fed every day no matter who's making policy. Their lives (and mine) won't change as a result of a power shift.
Also, I'm so apathetic about politics now that I doubt much will get accomplished with a divided Congress and an antagonistic Republican party running the House. Hooray for more of the same.
