I admit that my first thought on reading of this 'lame-duck session' crap

is that a whole lot of people should sort of hint to the people involved something along the lines of "If you do this, you will be made to regret it. Maybe just until they manage to scrape the tar off(or remove the remains from the rope), but you WILL regret it."
The rush to recess gives Democrats little time to pass any major laws. That's why there have been signs in recent weeks that party leaders are planning an ambitious, lame-duck session to muscle through bills in December they don't want to defend before November. Retiring or defeated members of Congress would then be able to vote for sweeping legislation without any fear of voter retaliation.
Translation: "We're too chickenshit to put staying in this office at greater risk by trying this before the election, so we'll screw the people in the name of the Progressive and National Socialist Democrat Cause after the election."

Can I point out to these clowns that 'voter retaliation' doesn't have to take place in a voting booth, in extreme circumstances?
