…the Muzak, of course, to be a potential by-product of the restoration of the most far-left, welfare-statist Liberals to power.
Folks, we are looking at a solid Democratic lockdown of Washington DC. The ultra-liberal MSM once again enshrined as the Most Holy Arbiter of all TRVTH and Doctrine. And a whole great big nasty slime-crusted, graft-riddled raft of “populist” policy to drive our nation to, and very likely over, the brink of destruction.
With all that, I’m nearly convinced that Comrade Obama will easily sail right into the Presidency, provided he can keep his Gaffe-tastic running mate locked in a closet somewhere. Barring a sudden revelation that he’s gotten caught with three male hookers in a stolen sportscar with a dozen eight-balls of coke, there is simply nothing that can prevent him from sweeping the election in a moderate landslide.
All right, enough of my whining/polemic over the likely outcome of this atrocity of an election year. I’m predicting (unscientifically) that Obama will win (approx) 324-214 … that’s a margin of 190 votes. Not a crushing landslide, but not a squeaker either. I suspect that the popular vote will be much closer, but again, nothing like the Bush-Gore closeness that caused many liberals more than a few sleepless nights eight years ago.
My conclusions are drawn from this map:
I wonder how wrong - as Ohio is still very close, and may be in fact quite crucial, depending upon how that voter fraud thing with ACORN eventually works itself out.
The BEST case scenario I can think of would be close to a squeaker, and gives MO, NC, OH, and FL - all of which are still tightly contested in the polls - and most generously gives VA which seems to have been taken over by elite liberals who have carpetbagged moved on in from NY or MA… Or wealthy DC liberals who commute to from northern VA:
At this point, I’d say that the best thing that the GOP could do would be to financially cut McCain loose, and channel all remaining funds to defending GOP Senate races in jeopardy of being lost to the Blue Majority, if not aggressively funding strong contenders in any toss-up Senate seats.
If the GOP wants to put their best effort into preventing a bulletproof, filibuster-proof Senate, which would serve as a rubber-stamp body to whatever porky-garbage the House serves up… they must sacrifice McCain.
With a few notable exceptions, the House is all but a lost cause. The “Rescue/Bailout Bill” debacle has likely cost any (R) congressman who voted against the first bill, but flip-flopped on the second one (which piled on an additional $150B worth of pork and other perks to an unbelievable, outrageous theft of $700B from the taxpayers.
What effect that will have on (D) congressmen is harder to discern, but I don’t think that it will make a difference given the polls indicating an easy 280+ seat House majority, and potentially as many as 70-80 additional seats (as constituents punish R-incumbents who flipped on their votes on the Bailout) adding to that easy majority, up to a 350-360 seat majority.
