That Smell

(Sniff... sniff) You know how sometimes you can just tell that it's going to rain by the smell of the air? I wonder if the Republicans can smell the storm that's brewing for them?
Republicans are in jeopardy of losing their grip on Congress in November.

With less than four months to the midterm elections, the latest Associated Press-Ipsos poll found that Americans by an almost 3-to-1 margin hold the GOP-controlled Congress in low regard and profess a desire to see Democrats wrest control after a dozen years of Republican rule.

Further complicating the GOP outlook to turn things around is a solid percentage of liberals, moderates and even conservatives who say they'll vote Democratic. The party out of power also holds the edge among persuadable voters, a prospect that doesn't bode well for the Republicans.

The election ultimately will be decided in 435 House districts and 33 Senate contests, in which incumbents typically hold the upper hand. But the survey underscored the difficulty Republicans face in trying to persuade a skeptical public to return them to Washington.

Mmmm... just like fresh cut Democracy. I love that smell.

Hey, if you're looking for something fun, try being a George W Bush Speechwriter. It's hours of fun!

(Hopefully, posting will return to a more regular schedule now that my summer classes are over. I handed in my last final project today. Whew! Only six more classes to go!)
