Well over a year away from the election, here are two rather divergent predictions for November ’08’s outcome to choose from:
Rick Moran on the death of the GOP–the “Grumpy Old Party“, as he calls today’s Republicans: “Make no mistake. The modern Republican party is becoming monochromatic and regional in nature. It is bleeding supporters like a stuck pig; women, young folk, and working class whites are becoming Democrats right under your noses because you are failing to hear what they are telling you about issues that concern them.”
Copious Dissent dissents, rather copiously: “How The Democrats Lost The Election In Three Weeks: From Moveon.org to Liberals siding with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over Lee Bollinger”.
Frankly, my money right now is on the former scenario. By next fall, the past few weeks’ events could likely be ancient history, tossed far down the collective memory hole by a legacy media whose chief player gives sweetheart ad deals to Moveon.
