Agreeing about what Inhofe says about global warming? Now we know why we haven’t been able to get rid of him.
Not so good.CO: Udall 44, Schaffer 44. They had Udall by 10 a month ago. Combined with the Ras result (Udall +4, 7/21), this one may be “lean pickup” instead of “likely” at this point.
MN: Franken 38, Coleman 53. Ouch. Coleman led by 10 a month ago. This is still an uphill fight.

He’s a solid liberal and to be honest, there needs to always be at least one African-American in the Senate. We are beyond a point in our nation’s growth and history for there not to be at least one, if not several. It’s too bad the African-American population is so diluted over so many states, especially in the Deep South where the Democratic African-American vote is immediatly cancelled out by the Republican white vote.
Robert Wexler(FL) and Heather Wilson(NM). I have to say. I am glad that B!t@h’s political career is over.
Wexler makes an interesting point that Europeans waving American flags due to Obama’s visit should be a good thing. and Wilson’s reaction is that phony grin.
…could not believe how rude Wilson was. It left me, and not to mention Rep. Wexler and Chris visably annoyed. I mean constantly interrupting Wexler after she just finished speaking and that obnoxious grin/giggle. She was even referring to Rep. Wexler as Robert.

Not sounding to be a sexist. but I puke when i see or hear.
Musgrave-CO,Bachmann-MN,Wilson-NM or Schmidt-OH.
Wilson- is the same person who was complaining over Nipplegate and is responsible for the firing over the US Attorneys.
see Sali, Bill; DeLay, Tom; Inhofe, Jim; Hastert, Dennis; Doolittle, John; Schock, Aaron; Tancredo, Tom…And I’m not even including Larry Craig here. That’s like another dimension of…well, just plain weirdness.
Finish the Deal! Help elect Democrats in districts we narrowly lost in 2006!

Republicans who wrap themselves around the flag. Behave like high school cheerleaders for US officials torturing Prisoners in Abu Gahrib or Guantonano Bay. Introduce some controversial resolution such as Outlawing Gay Marriage or Stem-Cell Research,or Pornography, Making School Prayer Mandatory. Displaying the 10 Commandments in the Capital Done. Make statements condemming Labor Unions, Environmentalist and Non Christians. Support Oil Drilling in Every State because GOD told them it is a right thing to do.
(tag-teaming with Bob Latta from Ohio) extolling the merits (read: spewing bullshit) of drilling in the ANWR and claiming that if we had started drilling there ten years ago, we wouldn’t have to be importing any oil now, and also that “the technology now is such that not one drop of oil would be spilled”. What planet are these people from? In the first place, if we had started drilling there ten years ago, most of the oil obtained would have been exported to the Far East, as the US doesn’t have the refining capability to handle all that heavy sour stuff; and secondly, if they seriously believe that large-scale drilling in the ANWR could have been managed without affecting the environment there, they are on drugs.
who were Libetarian of Social issues but Hawkish on National Security issues extinct.
The Modern Republican party think that polluting the environment and screwing the unfortunate is good for Big Businesses. The Big Businessmens are the backbone of the US Economy. They forget to mention- In order for these big businesses to do well- They need to increase their Customer or Client bases. Consumers is what helps big businesses not giving the CEO of a business a huge tax cut so he can buy a Mercedez Benz.
The Modern Republican Party obsess over annihilating Gays,Illegal Immigrants,Muslims,Hollywood Producers and Actors,Environmentalist,Labor Unions. Believes that Parents should send their children to Jesus Bootcamp.
I checked it out online after you mentioned it and that condescending tone was pretty much infuriating.As a general note, it seems like Republicans have gone back to the 2004 playbook of late. Out of desperation perhaps, but I sincerely hope people don’t fall for this type of misleading/politics of fear crap again.
I was actually so upset after listening to Wilson that I had to search out and watch this great speech from Michelle Obama: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v…

New Mexico (DEM GAIN)
Oregon (DEM GAIN)
Virginia (DEM GAIN).
R)Gilmore 34%Democrats will pick up
why so pesimistic?
about Allen and Franken, both have moved up in the polls after lagging badly. Collins is only a seven point favorite after leading by over twenty. Franken now leads by three in RR, which seems to give a few points to the GOP over what actully happens.
Collins(ME) and Coleman(MN) average poll numbers are slightly above 50%.
If we look at the recent Rasmussen and Survey USA Poll taken in July 2008.
Rasmussen has Franken(D) leading by 49-46 percent margin.
Survey USA has Coleman(R) leading by 52-39 percent margin.
-Rasmussen polls Likely voters
Survey USA polls Registerd voters.
The 2008 Minnesota US Senate Race is unpredictable.
A recent Rasmussen has Collin(ME) leading Allen by a 10% margin 53-43. Undecided are probally going to break in Allen’s direction so Collin’s margin of victory will be narrow.
In MN- Coleman is a Bush-NEOCONNED Republican but Franken has too much baggage.
IN ME- Collins is perceived as a Moderate but Allen is the strongest candidate Democrats can field in this race.
OR is going to be and easy victory for us because- Smith is not perceived as a Moderate like Collins and Merkley is not as controversial as Franken.
IN NH- Sununu is running against a former Governor who is fairly popular and NH is a Democratic leaning state. Sununu is not an extremist like Santorum so he has a chance of appealing to the undecided voters.
I expect landslide margins for democrats in VA,NM,and CO. Open seats and
The Republican Nominees in VA,NM,and CO are too conservative – incompetent and corrupted. The Democratic nominees are extremely popular with the general electorate and the grassroots community.
That leaves us AK,MS,and NC. Stevens(AK)is goner because of corruption. MS- is too close to call. Dole(NC) can surprisingly lose due to her support for Jesse Helms.
KY is a wildcard because of Lunsford’s personal wealth.
nkpolitics – I don’t want to suggest that you cut down on commenting, but in this one string alone, you have three comments consisting of very long lists that seem largely repetitive or easily combine-able. Can you try to combine ideas into singular comments when possible? Thanks.
