Strike Up The Band

The handwriting is on the wall. Larry Sabato has released his Crystal Ball predictions for the Democrats in November.

The word bloodbath comes to mind:

Given what we can see at this moment, Republicans have a good chance to win the House by picking up as many as 47 seats, net. This is a “net” number since the GOP will probably lose several of its own congressional districts in Delaware, Hawaii, and Louisiana. This estimate, which may be raised or lowered by Election Day, is based on a careful district-by-district analysis, plus electoral modeling based on trends in President Obama’s Gallup job approval rating and the Democratic-versus-Republican congressional generic ballot (discussed later in this essay). If anything, we have been conservative in estimating the probable GOP House gains, if the election were being held today.

Do read the whole thing – because Sabato all but dooms the Dems in the Senate as well. And he continuously hedges that this first call could be rather – or very – low if a real wave develops. Anyway, this seems appropriate:

Bon voyage!

UPDATE: It will be worse than Sabato predicts. A lot worse.

One Response to Strike Up The Band

    Caution! Like wild animals, demagogues get desperate when they’re cornered. It’s too soon to think Jonestown or Heaven’s Gate at this point, we’re not there yet. But desperate megalomaniacs do have a propensity to resort to extremely desperate acts when they can no longer avoid being unmasked as contemptible frauds. And something along the lines of an attempt sabotage an election which is increasingly obvious they can’t win wouldn’t be outside the realm of possibility.

    None of the Democrat’s standard dodges seem to be working lately, they’ve tried the always previously reliable “race card” over and over but it just doesn’t seem to carry any of the old magic, even the NAACP can’t get the racist label to stick on the TEA Party people, and scaring senior citizens isn’t an option because they’re already plenty scared of ObamaCare and besides, they’re the ones fighting back.

    Practically the whole nation is overwhelmingly opposed to the entire range of Obama’s signature policies one after another, you name it, the American people hate it: Amnesty for illegals, ObamaCare, Cap and trade, a ban on oil exploration, another Stimulus Bill, Cash for Clunkers, bailouts of any sort, coddling terrorists, the Victory Mosque at Ground Zero, Department of In-Justice dismissing charges against Black Panther thugs and opposing Arizona’s immigration laws, the list is nearly endless.

    The American voters can’t get rid of Obama’s Democrat and RINO enablers fast enough! It’s just too bad Barack Obama’s name isn’t on the ballot.
