This past weeks’ primaries have changed the political landscape a bit. The obvious difference being the Delaware results. Since Mike Castle’s defeat combined with Christine O’Donnell’s low popularity numbers and whacky political positions, there is a renewed hope for a Delaware Democratic win in November. Nate’s model is closer to 53 seats in the Senate with Charlie Crists’ chances lessening in Florida.
The House races have also tightened with Nate showing close to 212 Democratic seats as opposed to the 209 from last week. But, we are still six weeks out from the November elections.
In other news, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have finally announced that they will hold their own rallies in Washington D.C. on October 30th. This should be really fun and it will be interesting to see how many people show up. The plus side is that the rallies are just before election day so take that, Glenn Beckenstein. I wish I could make it.
It is beginning to look less like a ‘bloodbath of epicproportions’ (to quote one of our more infamous trolls) and more like a pyrrhic piranhic feeding frenzy. Besides, tea parties are for little girls with make believe friends. And the Republicans are going to need all the friends they can get, even if they have to make some up. I can hardly wait for November 3rd. I’ve never been more excited about a mid-term election than this one. Just think of the things that could be accomplished if Democrats retain control of both houses. I know, I know; if they have the cajones to do it. They better, because they’re not likely to be handed an opportunity like this again.
