This I believe:

When (and if) the Democrats take control of both the House and the Senate, it will be a good day in my book. The Democrats are talking about removing troops from Iraq. This will be a good day. My best friend, an older brother type figure, has a set date to go to Iraq — and if the Democrats take over, it is possible that by the time his day has come to go into the Hell, the shit, the deep stuff, he will be out of harms way. OH YES! It will be a good day.
