But that's ok, since it will solidify the moonbat stance of the Democratic party, thus clearing the way for an easy win in 2008.

I fear you may be right, but it's not 'ok', and for the following reasons:

1. One of the first items on a Speaker Nancy Pelosi agenda will be re-enactment of the so-called 'Fairness Doctrine', which will effectively silence the most forceful opposition to the leftist agenda: conservative talk radio (methinks NPR and Air America will be spared from F.D. strictures ...). And I believe that GWB would be coerced into signing it into law instead of vetoing it.

2. The next agenda item will be zeroing out the budget for Iraq, and maybe even the WOT in general. This will force an Iraq bugout when the money spigot is closed (shades of Vietnam 1973-1975).

3. The inevitable attempt to impeach GWB and the Iraq bugout will prove Osama Bin Laden's assertion that we are a paper tiger correct in the eyes of our allies and enemies throughout the world. This will speed up planning and execution of any attack the terrorists may have in store for us.

My point is that in 2 years, a left-wing-controlled Congress may do irreversible damage to our country. Even if the Republicans could in theory muster enough support to retake Congress and retain the White House in 2008, I believe the 'Rats will stop at nothing to prevent it from happening --- and I mean NOTHING, up to and including violence.

I agree with your reasons that a Lamont victory would not be good, BUT...

Fortunately, even if the Dems were to win the House and Senate, we could use the cloture rule in the Senate, and we would have GWB to veto any totally onrous garbage from a Dem House/Senate.

Personally, I do not think Dems are going to make gains in November, but just in case....
