Oh No! The Washington Post sound like the nervous ones

Amid widespread panic in the Republican establishment about the coming midterm elections, there are two people whose confidence about GOP prospects strikes even their closest allies as almost inexplicably upbeat: President Bush and his top political adviser, Karl Rove.

Some Republicans on Capitol Hill are bracing for losses of 25 House seats or more. But party operatives say Rove is predicting that, at worst, Republicans will lose only 8 to 10 seats -- shy of the 15-seat threshold that would cede control to Democrats for the first time since the 1994 elections and probably hobble the balance of Bush's second term.

In the Senate, Rove and associates believe, a Democratic victory would require the opposition to "run the table," as one official put it, to pick up the necessary six seats -- a prospect the White House seems to regard as nearly inconceivable.

This story reads more like the writer is worried that despite the best efforts of the press Republicans may not be losing big after all. The WaPo folks aren't too sure of themselves either since they put this on page 4.

Comments:
Page 4 is full of interesting stories today in the Washington Post. They must think their readers never make it that far before moving to the funnies.
 
Let's go ahead and put the Dems conceding. Saw it in WaPo yesterday, but didn't want to light three off the same match. I think Republicans lead in the "most likely" voters category.

Here's one for Dad. It's about time, and long overdue.

Beautiful!!!
 
Another example of Dems desperate campaign tactics.

Shameful, just shameful.
 
Good morning @@, what's all this talk of a missing trash can? My Dad was Air Force too.
 
Good evening RW. Are you feeling O.K.?

I made no ^^^ mention of a trashcan.

Will you be giving your regards in person, or should I still plan on delivering them myself? ;-)

They are saying that standing in the center of the memorial makes you feel airborne. They move with the wind.

I love the wind and the ocean, and spring, and summer, and life.

I'll sleep through fall & winter though.
 
@@,

I must be losing my mind, alas there is no trash can comment!
 
Andy,

Crap! I stepped on your closing comment again, sorry.
