2013, legislatively speaking: A whole lot of nothing, and thank God for that.

Don’t get me wrong: I like it when the legislature passes good laws and repeal bad ones.  But I prefer a situation where the legislature doesn’t pass anything to one where the legislature passes bad laws, enforces bad laws, and declines to enforce ideologically inconvenient ones (whether or not I want them to).  Which is to say: I like the 11[2]th and the 11[3]th Congress a LOT more than I do the 11[1]th, and I make no apologies for that.

…I was going to add to this, but I don’t really think that I have anything else to say.

[Numbers fixed. Although, to be fair: the 110th was nothing to write home about, either.]

Sigh. I want to make a 11/12/13 joke.

Unfortunately, all of the jokes that I can think of aren’t really that funny, and I’m also kind of bemused that I’m living in 2013. Which, truth be told, does feel kind of future-shocky at times; thirty years ago my idea of ‘cutting edge’ was the Commodore 64, which I had just gotten as a present.

They have an app for that now.
