The Clouds are Gathering

Sphere: Related Content

It's been a tough few weeks for Republicans and the donks have pushed the news cycles keeping the Foley no sex sex scandal in the headlines.

Some very reliable sources see big things for the Dems come November including this:

The national atmospherics don’t merely favor Democrats; they set the stage for a blowout of cosmic proportions next month.

Republicans failed to produce anything meaningful over the past couple of years on the president’s top priorities, Social Security reform and immigration. And now in the wake of the scandal surrounding former Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.), the House leadership looks like the Keystone Cops.

You can be sure that the Foley mess will percolate for a while, as Democrats and journalists ask House Republicans what they knew and when they knew it. Instead of being able to focus on their accomplishments in office or their challengers’ warts, Republican House Members running for re-election will have to spend too much of their time answering questions about the scandal.

The feeling I get from the donks is quiet exhuberance but a feeling of dread.They remind me of Philly sports fans who know their team is winning big, yet they await the implosion. They can't take another 1964 Phillies or the Eagles coughing up a huge lead against the Giants three weeks ago.

The stars are aligned and they still may blow it.

One can hope.
