Bad News? Or Good News?

So! The latest polls are out, and gee, willikers, Batman! Looks like the entire Rethug deal is on the skids with the folks at long last!...

Check it out for yourself. The Rethugs, oh, golly, gosh, why, not just Il Douchebag in the dumpster, but just the word "Repuke-again" is also a no-no in the polls.

Oh, I'm having an orgasm!

"Democratic leaders predicted they will seize control of one or both chambers of Congress in November. Republicans said they feared the worst unless the political landscape quickly changes."

Meaning, a miracle of Old Testament proportions, correct? Lessee, gas is now approaching $3 a gallon, the economy still hasn't improved, and every day, we learn that Bush is Nixon II, and the Rethugs don't do a goddamned thing about it.

Miracle? MmmmmmHmmmm.

"These numbers are scary. We've lost every advantage we've ever had," GOP pollster Tony Fabrizio said. "The good news is Democrats don't have much of a plan. The bad news is they may not need one."

Hey, a winning horse is a winning horse, especially if the rest of the pack falls over and dies on takeoff, eh?

"There is more at stake than the careers of GOP lawmakers. A Democratic-led Congress could bury the last vestiges of Bush's legislative agenda and subject the administration to high-profile investigations of the Iraq war, the CIA leak case, warrantless eavesdropping and other matters."

Flaps down, brakes set, reversers armed, spoilers to auto-arm, you mean. As soon as the hands go up for the swearing in, the impeachment engines will whine to full throttle, sports fans!

"First, the elections would need to be nationalized. Democrats hope to do that with a burgeoning ethics scandal focused on relationships between GOP lobbyists and lawmakers."

A few commercials here and there showing old Abramoff and Delay? Game, set, match!

"Secondly, the public would need to be in a throw-the-bums-out mood. It's unclear whether that is the case, but 69 percent of Americans believes the nation is headed in the wrong direction -- the largest percentage during the Bush presidency and up 13 points from a year ago."

69 percent, eh? That's a wide margin to this redneck. I'd put money on it.

"Third, staunch GOP voters would need to stay home. Nobody can predict whether that will happen, but a growing number of Republicans disagree with their leaders in Washington about immigration, federal spending and other issues."

That part's already working. Many Repubs I know personally are angry, disenchanted, you name it. They feel betrayed, especially by goons who swear they prefer "a balanced budget" and are spending America into Chapter 11, eh? Too, let us not forget that the Religous Right (aka, Morality Mafia Muthas...) are also a tad annoyed that they do not yet have an American Iran as of yet.

I said, a time back, anyone riding on Bush's train is asking for an electoral ass-whupping. The polls prove me correct. But, I am so angry and so fed up with this continuation of Nixon, Raygun and Daddy Bush, well, it's like this, Rethugs: Stay the course, as, we want you all the hell out and gone. And take those PNAC Nazis with you!
