Good-bye GOP

At least until the memory of how much they suck fades from the electorate's consciousness - as it did after Nixon... as it did after the Reagan/G.H.W Bush 1-2 punch... as it did after Newt and the "Contract with America"...

Why is it that successive generations of voters must learn repeatedly that Republicans and government don't mix?

GOP Faces Growing Peril In 2008 Races -
A Senate electoral playing field that was already wide open for 2008 has become considerably more perilous for Republicans with the retirement of Sen. John W. Warner (R-Va.) and the resignation of scandal-scarred Sen. Larry E. Craig (R-Idaho).

Republicans need a net gain of just one seat to take back control of the Senate, but they have 22 seats to defend, and campaign cash is conspicuously lacking. Warner's retirement raised to two the number of open Republican seats, and both of them -- in Virginia and Colorado -- are prime targets for Democrats.
