And you are part of the problem. No liberal every threatened the life or safety of conservatives during the Bush Administration. The worst was basically some guy in berkley saying the Marines suck. But you have done the old pox on both their houses shit.
Conservatives are anti-American traitors, whether it makes you feel icky and partisan is irrelevent.
Paul has lately said he would not leave abortion to the states, he doesn't believe in legalizing drugs like marijuana and cocaine, he'd support federal drug laws, he'd vote to support Kentucky's coal interests and he'd be tough on national security.
Not to mention that Jack Conway is much better than Landrieu or Bayh or even Feinstein. Having him in the Senate for 6 years is a real good deal. Quit buying teabagger spin about their "principles" - they don't have any.
Its not a national ballot, only in the most vulnerable districts. Obviously individual race polling is better, but it isnt good.
But DMD makes a good point about PA-12. That needs to factor into any narrative. All those vulnerable Dems voted against us and the Pres across the board; they can just copy the strategy of populism with social conservatism.
And if the Repubs do indeed somehow manage to narrowly capture either house of Congress this year, then they’ll be the ones to suffer in 2012.
Did Dems suffer in 2008 after controlling Congress? Bush got all the blame. People rarely know who is in charge of what - they do know who the President is, though. If things turn around, it'll be morning in America. If not, well...
Via Digby, Harman is already running negative ads. It looks like she is scared. Low turnout primary plus anti-incumbent fervor plus the fact that Winograd run nearly 40% of the vote the last time around. I think we have a shot.
