MaudlinMutantMollusk: Call me when Karl Rove is standing next to a freeway offramp with a hand-scrawled sign that says "will bullsh*t for food"
Gosling: DamnYankees: Even if they don't retake the Senate, best case for Dems is holding, like, 51 seats. Hardly a great thing.Wasn't the best case for the Dems "lose the Senate" in 2012? The past two cycles, the GOP has taken seats they by all rights should have won and just handed them over to the Dems because they put up candidates who were completely, totally unacceptable. They had Harry Reid dead to rights and then they put up Sharron Angle. They had Chris Coons dead to rights and then they put up Christine O'Donnell instead of Michael Castle. They had Claire McCaskill dead to rights and then Todd Akin happened. It's clearly primed to happen again this cycle no matter what the map tells you at first glance. The big question is where is it going to happen and what races are they going to flush down the toilet.
HotWingConspiracy: Satanic_Hamster: I'm wondering if there's a single millionaire/billionaire Republican out there stupid enough to give millions of Carl Rove again.(and I'm betting yes)(how hasn't that guy not been killed as a warning to others)They will donate again, but demand that he do the MC Rove dance on command.
Mercutio74: TuteTibiImperes: If the Democrats can keep the Senate and somehow pull off a takeover of the house, we could have two solid years of freaking awesome progress unimpeded by the GOP.The Dems need 60 Senate seats for that. Or they need to re-institute the actual filibuster.
obenchainr: urbangirl: spman: JerseyTim: What does Nate Silver say? The rest of just bullshiat.Nate Silver has been MIA since transitioning over to ESPN / ABC. According to Cook Political Report http://cookpolitical.com/senate/charts/race-ratings, the GOP is fairly strongly favored to win in Montana, West Virginia, and almost certainly will turn South Dakota. If they can take Arkansas and one other, and Alaska is probably their best chance, they will control the Senate.This is assuming they don't lose other places like Kentucky, which is rapidly becoming a possibility.Never underestimate the power of the Tea Party to screw over the GOP./not saying Dems should be complacent//it's entirely possible the GOP House will get TP'd as well
FlashHarry: The Republican's chances of retaking the Senate this fall are in serious jeopardy as the GOP money machine is grinding to a halt as donations dry up.and who is this shadowy republican who is attempting to take over the entire senate?
