Slap down


errrr, lame duck.

Bush vetoed H.R. 6331, Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 earlier today and released a predictably inane justification of said veto.

By 5 pm, the House had voted to override his veto and by 6 pm, the Senate did likewise.

Occasionally, government is actually speedy.

This, coming on the heels of the Aspen City Council's unexpected approval of the Aspen Club's Conceptual SPA last night, might just restore my faith in democracy.

Or not.

Have to wait until November for that . . .
