    the lady (nyt) gives lincoln a chance?

    LOL!

    her trailing john boozeman by 38 per rasmussen a few weeks ago was reported by politico as the worst polling ever by an incumbent

    roger simon's journo listers since took it down, i'd presume because it's not true

    but either way, it's dismal, impossibly dismal

    my sainted old ma lives in arkansas, still tack-sharp, still totally politico herself...

    bye bye blanche, in boozeman's bag

    bottom line---if carly can beat bitchy barbara in CA, reds have a better than 50-50 chance UPSTAIRS

    you've got a very unpopular, unattractive, arrogant extremist standing between you and your fears

    worry

    it's getting so bad, wwf mcmahon is actually catching some excitement in connecticut, the most elitist, eggheaded and wealthy "state" in the union (connecticut is a case)

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/11/ny...inda_e_mcmahon

    since her primary win over congressman simmons 3 weeks ago, ms mcmahon has gained on mr blumenthal, who has his own well publicized problems, by about a dozen points, she's within SEVEN in scott's latest survey

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2010 - Connecticut Senate - McMahon vs. Blumenthal

    now the constitution state is a reach, granted, that's why i have it as pickup #14

    but whereas charlie cook did not use the word "romp," he did talk all about the "wave"

    even connecticut is not out of reach

    worry

    this is dead dodd's demesne, bear in mind

    Most of the health care reform law is entitlement spending, not discretionary spending. That means that Congress doesn't NEED to vote to fund it; the funding is automatic. They would need to vote to repeal it.

    At most, the Republicans would be able to defund a few minor bits of discretionary spending sprinkled throughout the bill. And most of them aren't very controversial anyway (e.g. funding for electronic health records).

    a republican house will certainly move to undo the mandate, which those bellwether show me's shouted down via measure c, 71 to 29

    a boehner led house will certainly act, here, and reds will be hailed as heroes and heroines for so doing

    which is an excellent start

    They can "move to undo the mandate" all they like. But they aren't actually going to get anywhere regardless of the outcome of the 2010 or 2012 elections. I think the Democrats are in for a world of hurt in 2010, but I'm not the slightest bit concerned that Republicans will have the power to undo health care reform.

    Yeah, people who think the GOP will repeal health care reform in 2010 are delusional. It's literally impossible. As in, the GOP could win literally every seat in the senate that is up for election and they still wouldn't even be a supermajority, much less veto-proof.

    link?

    meanwhile, in THE NEWS:

    health secty---reeducation is called for

    Sebelius: Time for 'Reeducation' on Obama Health Care Law - The Note

    but, concerning obamacare "democratic candidates are being instructed to promote their independence from the party and from capitol hill," ie, don't talk about it

    http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...s-health-care/

    nor their "legislative accomplishments"

    Endangered Dems quiet on key votes - Jake Sherman - POLITICO.com

    herndon, which "coordinates" for the seiu, aflcio, la raza, moveon and others, "abandons claims that [obamacare] will reduce costs and the deficit and instead stresses a promise to 'improve it.'"

    Dems retreat on health care cost pitch - Ben Smith - POLITICO.com

    hcan, meanwhile, works to reward its supporters---by "changing the subject"

    Health reform group aids campaigns - Sarah Kliff - POLITICO.com

    kind of a pinch, no?

    surviving dems will join gop house leadership in undoing the mandate

    an excellent start

    Well, who was Obama before he came to national prominence? Maybe there's somebody that just hasn't tripped the radar yet.
