Democrats Control the Federal Government

What, didn't you know that those damn Democrats controlled both houses of Congress, the White House and most of the Judiciary (and of course the MSM)? After all, Democrats set the agenda in Washington, chair the important committees, and wrote the Constitution.

Could I get any more ridiculous? Maybe not, but DeLay seems to think the Democrats are to blame for... everything:
WASHINGTON - Republicans may control Congress and the White House, but a leading House Republican says they can't be blamed for runaway federal spending on their watch.

Blame it on the war, said Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas. Or the Democrats.

"The 9-11 recovery, the war on terror, our homeland security buildup and related priorities have required Congress to spend more than we otherwise would have," the former majority leader of the House of Representatives told an audience Thursday at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

He also blamed Democrats, complaining that they haven't offered any suggestions on how to cut spending. He said they created a congressional budget process that makes it difficult to cut spending.

"We've been operating off a Congress designed by Democrats," he said.

The Republicans took control of Congress in 1995.

Why you know what, those damn Democrats are responsible for arthritis, asthma, STDs, and penile erecting disorders. Hell, I think the Democrats, with Clinton's help, even started the first World War, and conspired with Saddam and Osama to attack the United States on 9-11!

The Republicans have been in control of Congress for 10 years, and Bush has been in office for 5 years. When are the Republicans going to live in their "ownership society" and realize that Clinton isn't president anymore, the Democrats aren't the majority in Congress anymore, tax cuts for the rich, not 9-11, are responsible for the majority of the budget deficit, and they own the mess the country is in now?

I'm not holding my breath.
