God I hate writing this. But the conventional wisdom is that republican politicians are going to have huge election victories this November. After all the “polls” are all giving consistently positive results, leading talk to even take backt he ouse and Senate.
I SAY IT IS ALL FOR NAUGHT! RUBBISH!
Why, because they are “peaking too early” in the cycle. The result is goign to creeate complacency amongst constituents when they were energised 60 days ago. After all they are making it sound like the next election is in the bag.
Even worse, disgusted far left democrats who are angry over Afghanistan, gay rights, who have basically thrown in the towel may get reenergised to vote for the “lesser of two evils”.
Just a small shift of either or both of the above will lose whatever lead the Republicans think they have.
At the end of the day, what many of us want is gridlock. After all that means minimal new spending. Whether it is mountains of money to bankers, or even bigger mountains to people who hate bankers, most of us just want it to stop.
As far as incumbent backlash goes, sure but I want your incumbent out not mine. After all it is my incumbent’s job to bring back as much pork as possible and the more seniority the more pork I get.
All I can say to everyone who is in “shock and awe” over this hopey changy thing don’t count your chickens just yet.
