Our day is a little brighter
I need a new circus
Bring On the Seinfeld Congress

I’m afraid the election results still haven’t registered in Washington. Democrats and Republicans keep making noises about working together to accomplish great things. But that’s not what Americans voted for. They voted for gridlock.Now, he can gain the contempt and disdain of scientists the way he's gained that contempt and disdain from the rest of us.
Whatever they do the next two years, I won’t be here to kick them around. This is my last column on the Op-Ed page. I’ve enjoyed the past couple of years in Washington, but one election cycle is enough. I’m returning full time to the subject and the city closest to my heart: science and New York. I’ll be writing a column and a blog for the Science Times section.
I hate to abandon my libertarian comrades here fighting in the belly of the beast, but this is the right moment to leave. After six years of libertarians reluctantly electing Republicans as the lesser of two evils, we’ve finally had enough. We’ve voted out big-government conservatism, and the result is the happy state of gridlock. For now, our work is done. See you in January in a new column on a new page.
The stupidest man writing for the Times opinion page is now gone. Who's up next, Byron York?
No, John, Americans voted to end the war.
Not for gridlock.
My bet, his first column is about the benefits of creation science.
