gas prices are dropping, unemployment is steady, the economy is in decent shape...

to a large segement of the population, this is all that matters.

i think it's more likely that the republicans keep both as opposed them losing both... but it wouldn't surprise me at all if they lost one of the two

Tapping's fine--with judicial oversight and safeguards. And if time was of the essence, government had the 48 hour grace period before they got court approval. How often was the government denied court approval for wiretap? Not often.

Like has been said over and over, no oversight leads to abuse.
Hell, even oversight won't prevent all abuse.

Like Reagan said, Trust.....but verify. Or paraphrased, give what authority is necessary and watch them like a hawk.

Congressionall Approval at Historic Lows


A new Gallup Poll finds "only 23% of Americans saying they approve of the way Congress is handling its job. Additionally, just 30% say they are satisfied with the way things are going in the country at the present time. Both measures are low from a historical perspective, creating an environment that may benefit the Democrats in November."

Porn is protected speech and it is not illegal.

i think everyone agrees with this. it is the Bush administration that doesn't.

as for an actual prediction, i have no idea.

it looks like the Dems will win the House, and be within a seat or two in the Senate as well as win back the majority of governorships.

but the GOP has more money and a highly respected "ground game" -- they know how to get their numbers out.

and electronic voting still concerns me.

i'm voting absentee so there's a paper trail.

I'll wait and see. We don't know for sure, but life has been rough for the Republicans of late. We'll know on election day.

^ they're saying it will come down to money, which might be true, but everyone on the panel on Meet The Press this morning predicted the Republicans losing 20 seats in the house, and the Senate breaking mostly even.

they did note, though, that while Harold Ford Jr. should win in Tennessee, there seems to be a bit of a "black tax" on candidates -- african-americans tend to do about 5 points worse in electoral outcomes than they poll because many white people, especially conservatives in red states, who would never tell a pollster that they would never vote for a black person, once they get in the booth, racism rears its ugly head, and it turns out that they would never actually vote for a black person.

i still think the House is going to go Democratic, but the Senate will either be divided or stay barely Republican.

Republicans will retain control of both, but by a slimer margin.

Republicans will lose the House (Zogby says 20-25 seats, but I think it'll be less) and will lose 3-4 Senate seats but not enough to lose control.

A "slimer" margin--now, that sounds ominous.
