"We did it, Mr. President"

Reports are that a deal has been reached that both pro-choice and anti-abortion sides can live with. Plus a little extra cash just for Ben Nelson's Nebraska constituents.

There's an old saying that politics is like sausages in that if people could see how they are made no one would swallow it. Well, no one could say the process of passing this bill has been anything but ugly. Such is the life in our lunatic legislature.

But the passage of this bill will be a major achievement for America, for Senate Leader Harry Reid, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and for the President. A weary but fervent congratulations to them all for getting us here.
