GOP Faces Dimming Prospects in '08

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 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.


"The state of the playing field looks very good, even in places where we didn't expect it to look good, even in deeply red states," said Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. "Things could change, but if you did a snapshot, we're going to have a good year."

"It's always darkest right before you get clobbered over the head with a pipe wrench. But then it actually does get darker," said a GOP pollster who insisted on anonymity in order to speak candidly.

Well, I haven't gotten my keys and the super duper password for the new place yet, so I thought I'd put this here for meantime.

Looks to be that we'll get our last glimpse of Larry Craig (at least until he enters "rehab") today at 1230p EST. Set the Tivo.

fTucker is still in the middle of a broohaha over his gaybashing. Poor fTucker.

Karl got all weepy as he hightailed it from the disaster he made. Sniff.

How the hell did Minneapolis make it this long? At least NOW they can crack a cold one while fufting cardboard squares surrounded by trolls. (real and plastic)

I understand the basic idea, but wish some of these "Generals" would have spoken the hell up when they could actually do something about the actions they're now griping about.
