Oh me of little faith.
The repubs have a way of snatching defeat from the hands of victory.
As an example..Elaine Marshall D,( an old bat BTW) is running against the incumbent Senator Richard Burr R. here in NC.
For at least a month she has been running TV spots tying Burr to Big Oil/BP/ oil spill. Very effective IMHO.
Burr has yet to run any ads let alone a rebuttal.
By the time he gets around to it , it will be too late. People will have made up their minds.
I think Burr is going down this election.
You said it.
This year they have an ideal opportunity to nationalize the election. Far, far more ideal than even 1994. What with all the *very* unpopular polices of the regime -- stimulus, takeovers, health care, financial reform, Arizona lawsuit....
Yet, I see no indication that they plan to nationalize the election. Hopefully I'm wrong on this.
