Pajamas TV's Trifecta assesses the post-election prospects of the coming Mad Duck Congress

With attention focused on Tuesday's election, it's easy to forget that the 111th Congress still isn't over, it will be baaaaccckkkkk and many of it's members are likely to feel like they've got nothing left to lose. What might have been merely a lame duck Congress could become the mad duck Congress.

So, as Pajamas TV's Trifecta host Stephen Green explains: “If you hated what the 111th Congress did pass, just imagine what the mad ducks have waiting … in the wings.”

Sorry, that was just such a great pun (and Green delivered it perfectly!) I couldn't resist using it to introduce this link to the latest edition of Trifecta, featuring, with Green, the once and future Examiner contributor Scott Ott of Scrappleface fame and comedian Steven Kruiser.

Go here for the full Trifecta. And trust me, it's far better than the full Cleveland!
