What happened to the glorification of youth among the American Left?

Across the Capitol rotunda, the make-up of the U.S. Senate is getting attention. In the 2012 cycle 33 Senate seats will be up. Of those only 10 are held by Republicans.

According to a Wall Street Journal piece by Gerald Seib,

"Among those 23 Democrats who face voters in 2012 are a handful of incumbents from the kind of moderate to conservative states where Democrats took a beating last week."

Seib also writes that, "on some issues the Republicans actually may have a functional majority."

Given that plus a huge GOP majority in the House that pesky Article I of the U.S. Constitution might be given a shot of adrenaline.

Article I begins thus: "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be v

ested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives."

Not in the Oval Office; not in the Departments and Agencies; not in the offices of the many Czars within the Executive Office of the President, but in "a Congress of the United States."

Let the games begin.
