Good Luck, Howard Dean

The polls open in just a few hours, and it looks like the Democrats are likely to win the House this year. They also have a chance to win the Senate.

Can you just imagine the last minute meetings in the upper echelons of the Democratic party right now? They haven't been in this position in a look time. They must be holed up with coffee, cigarettes, analysis and white boards brainstorming last minute strategy and trying to answer one key question:

What do we need to do to snatch defeat from the jaws of certain victory?

Good luck with that, boys.

If anyone can do it, they can.

After all, despite multitudes of scandals and tsunamis of ineptitude by the GOP, the democrats have a way of fumbling the ball on the one-yard line.

On the other hand, I don't know that a stupid joke by humorless John Kerry (And the subsequent, depressingly predictable spin by Bush and co.) will be enough to deter hordes of Americans who are dissatisfied with the current Neo-Con administration.

This year, it's less about Dems vs. Repubs and more about reasonable people at long last ousting corrupt politicians.

It's about old versus new.
It's about change.
It's about time.
