As Barack Obama and the Democrats wrap up a successful lame-duck session of Congress, Republicans are howling in outrage that Congress dared do the job for which it collects a paycheck.  Then there is the allegation that the Democrats tried to cram stuff at the last minute.  Of course the last minute cramming was caused by the record number of filibusters that the Democrats had to overcome in the Senate the past two years.

Another thing the Republicans seem to forget when howling about passing lame duck legislation is their impeachment of Bill Clinton in the 1998 lame-duck session after LOSING seats (something that almost never happens to the opposition party in the sixth year of a presidency).  Enjoy the achievements of the most productive Congress in a generation.  The next two years will not be pretty.
