How Low Can They Go?
Republicans are still grappling with their loss in that special election in Mississippi, and what it portends for November.
But a report in The Politico sheds some light on just how bad things look for some House Republicans:
Many House GOP operatives are privately predicting that the party could easily lose up to 20 seats this fall.
Combined with the 30 seats that the GOP lost in 2006, that would leave the party facing a 70-vote deficit against Democrats in the House — a state of powerlessness reminiscent of Republicans’ long wilderness years in the 1960s and ’70s.
Maybe that’s why they came up with a catchy new slogan, "The Change You Deserve."
Wait, haven’t we heard that before?
