There will be no joy in Mudville on Nov 8th

I’m concerned that the Democrats are taking this election for granted. With so much good news in the polls that the Republicans are about to lose the house and possibly the Senate and no apparent overt strategy emanating from the Rove White House, I suspect that we are all overlooking the obvious.
In 2000, the election was obviously rigged in Florida to put Bush in power and they almost didn’t make it, in fact having to fight right up to the Supreme Court to get the guy appointed.
In 2002, not much effort was needed to rig the elections since they had the voters scared that the Democrats would give the country to the terrorists, but there is evidence that the same tactics were employed and in fact were test runs for 2004.
“In 1996, Hagel became the first elected Republican Nebraska senator in 24 years when he did surprisingly well in an election where the votes were verified by the company he served as chairman and maintained a financial investment. In both the 1996 and 2002 elections, Hagel’s ES&S counted an estimated 80% of his winning votes.”
In 2004 there was much controversy over the Bush victory in Ohio, and in all of these elections, although there was investigations and debates, the outcomes remained.
Now in 2006 do we really think that the GOP will roll over and submit to the will of the people? Yeah and the Iraqis are going to welcome American soldiers with flowers to come get their WMDs.
I do hope that my prediction is just as wrong.

I'm shocked to find out there's gambling going on in this establishment!

Rove needed an October media blitz surprize to counter the buzz over Woodward's book "State of Denial". Little did he realize that would be Foley's resignation.
We now discover that the leadership either ignored the Foley situation out of ignorance or deliberately covered it up.
But maybe as the chair of the house caucus of missing and exploited children he was just doing some research.
