    So when Obama met with the Right at George Will's house, what devious plots were cooked up that night?

    gallup has republicans leading dems by 4 in latest generic, a gain of 6 since last month, +12 since july

    independents, meanwhile, prefer red by 22

    Republicans Edge Ahead of Democrats in 2010 Vote

    rasmussen, the most accurate pollster in 04, 06 and 08, currently has generic GOP up by 8

    the founder of espn (rasmussen) also finds prez approval at a near all time low of 46, with 53 disinclined

    in further developments, progressives are prodigiously pissed at stupak, pitts and the traitorous 39

    (obama supporters are just so darned headline-challenged, there really ARE no positive developments to link to)

    the ny23 phenomenon AGAINST the party in power is now nationwide

    it's precisely what propelled mayor mcginn to 2-wheeled victory in starbucks city, seattle

    For intents and purposes, there have been no Democrats elected from the core of this district in 100 years. At one time the 23rd included Schenectady and parts of Albany, very blue counties, but not now. No Democrat could ever get elected from the Adirondack counties without the Republicans giving it to them.

    I wasn't talking about NY-23 in this comment. I was stating a fact regarding the California congressional race in response to a comment from the Prof.

    more intra party disputation in the empire state

    and it's a lot bigger than tiny 23

    governor paterson rips the president for wanting to try ksm in the apple

    Paterson Rips White House For NYC 9/11 Trial - wcbstv.com

    meanwhile, third party candidate doug hoffman "unconceded" today on beck

    whether he formally gives in or not is really moot, if the fastly narrowing count does indeed go the third party guy's way, he'll be sworn in regardless

    to be honest (as always), hoffman ultimately taking tiny 23 is a distant longshot

    he'd have to earn a plurality of 2000 with only 10000 absentees out

    still, the quirky candidate did remarkably well for a rep from a minor party, came within a point or so

    Do the rabid righties ever get tired of trying to have it both ways in every topic on this forum?

    It is quite laughtable not only to me...but the whole world.
    What is laughable to me is people switch their votes from a R to a D or a D to a R and expect a different outcome and are genuinely surprised when things remain much the same.
