Lame Duck Accomplishments

Expanding Government Power, Lowering Ethical Standards.

They don't call it a lame duck for nothing! The two shining accomplishments of the lame duck session seem to be 1) The Delay vote and 2) The provision granting appropriation chairmen the ability to designate an 'agent' to look at your tax returns. (Although this seems to be the rouge action of some House staffers. Never the less, as Senator McCain said, it's kind of surreal that they're voting on a huge omnibus bill (14 inched thick) that no-one is quite sure of exactly what's in it. And yes, I'm thankful for this silliness too.
