The new Congress with its ambitious agenda stalled in futility on the immigration bill and war funding. They have held 600 oversight meetings and 300 investigations, but other than wasted rhetoric and juvenile political games nothing substantial has happened.

This is good and is one reason the market may have been performing so well (at least up until today!)

Maybe it is a good sign that there is so little going on to complain about that we can consume our time with weeks of mindless pablum about the problems of Paris Hilton and Brittany Spears.
