Thoughts from a bus ride

So I was on the M4 downtown today, since the subway was flooded, with a very chatty driver. He seemed to know almost everyone who got on the bus, and wasn't shy about expressing his views on last night's elections. He explained to one woman that he (and the rest of the union) got a pretty good turnout, although sometimes they had to pay people to vote (!?) Anyway, he went on saying that America is a great country because we finally have a woman as Speaker of the house (maybe), and that the Democrats are in control of Congress. Now, I don't claim to know what he was thinking the day before yesterday, but I know the type. Apparently, we went from Hell on Earth to a great country overnight, just because of the party affiliation of the majority of Congressmen and women. I don't buy it.

UPDATE: Beauty, eh?
