The article is crap. It is barely even makes sense because most of us do not consider Bushhate to be logical reasoning.
Realize that Bush is probably going to win in a couple weeks. When that happens, and when the Republicans keep the house and the Senate, the Democrats will have been a true minority, and remain as such for almost 10 years. Out of seven presidential terms, they will have captured exactly two and those two will have been captured by a man who portrayed himself as a southern conservative bluedog type Democrat.
The much larger problem is going to be the desperation of the Democratic party after this election. I mean they have deluded themselves for so long that it can't possible be their ideals that drive people away. They are the "true believers" and must be right, moreso than any religious group. The only reason they weren't president is because of a stolen election, by their reasoning. However this time they will have put up a good, well financed candidate. They will have, via their own money and 529's spent more money than they EVER have on an election. They will have run against an incumbent that they consider to be a complete moron and easily demonstratable as incompetent, and they are going to LOSE.
Then they are going to realize, gee we've started losing the black vote because black folks really don't dig on homosexual marriage, neither do Catholics. Wow, half our union members vote for Bush even though we have a boondoggle to get all the union money. Wow we will have barely kept our advantage among women when we were scaring everyone to death by claiming Bush was going to hand out rusty coat hangers on Election day. They're going to realize that all they have left are the mindless sheep around the major media centers (Chicago, New York, LA) and that even that is starting to fall apart.
The Democratic party is very split. If Daschle goes down, then it will really hit the fan even more because it will show Democrats that they can't talk one way in Washington, and another way at home. The shit will hit the fan double if that comes to pass on election day.
I'm predicting, as I always have, Bush 49%- Kerry 46%. I'm also predicting that Daschle is going to go down and the Democratic party is going to split wide open.
