But Demos victory celebration may be short lived

WASHINGTON, DC -- Democrats were greeted as liberators today as Operation American Freedom swept through this long besieged city, taking back both the US House of Representatives and the Senate.
Long-repressed liberals danced and wept in the streets they toppled the statue of Donald Rumsfeld, which had cast its long shadow over the Pentagon for the past six years.
Wearing a flight suit, new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi emerged from a Huey 1 helicopter that had landed on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and declared "major combat operations have ended."
However, senior political advisors said the mission was still far from accomplished. The leader of the Republican Guard, Richard Cheney, is still at large. He is believed to be hiding in a spider bunker in a GOP stronghold outside Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Rather than surrendering, disgruntled members of the Guard may simply melt into the general population, where they can plant incendiary news stories and wreak havoc on Democrats trying to rebuild the country.
Advisors warn that, if not managed carefully, post-election America could end up snared in a bruising and endless civil war.
