As we have said here before, W was so bad that this country elected a black guy for President. Obama on some level (the non-fighter rope-a-dope level) and too many Dems on other levels have been so bad and/or so disappointing to so many, that despite the minority having its a$$ handed to it in 2 straight elections, the aaRRRgghhhs are about to go back into the majority in at least 1 part of Congress. Yes, there's the wingnut noise machine and all their money, but how bad do you have to be at governing to let these batshades take over again? How bad do you have to be as Senate Majority Leader to even be in a close race with the tea party? Remember when Jon Lovitz was doing his Dukakis on SNL, and he's debating Dana Carvey's bush I, and he says, "I can't believe I'm losing to this guy"? Exactly. Gore probably said the same thing; Reid is saying it now. Well, believe it, you're that bad. You didn't have to be, but you are.
