Cruising the Web

2012 won't bring an easier electoral path for Senate Democrats. They'll be defending more seats - that's what happens when a party had a great election cycle six years ago. Focus on that race will begin on Wednesday.

If the entire Senate, instead of just 37 seats, were up this year - experts think the GOP could have won a veto-proof majority. Interesting, but not the way our system works. The Founders preferred a more gradual change. Our leaders in Washington did not.

Dana Milbank isn't impressed with the first-ever appearance of a sitting president on the Daily Show - Obama had a "Heckuva job, Brownie" moment. This Stewart rejoinder is probably not what Obama was hoping to hear.
"We have done things that some folks don't even know about," Obama ventured.

Oh? "Are you planning a surprise party for us?" the host inquired.

Daniel Henninger reminds us of how lucky we are that card check never passed.

Charlie Rangel may have
to have a fool for a client.

While Democrats whine about Karl Rove, they're hoping people won't notice that they've raised the most money from Wall Street, the drug industry, and the HMO industry. Also the top business PACs. It's a bit different from the line they're peddling, isn't it?

No - but the Rs rise at the moment is reaction against the Ds rather than an actual swing. The Tea Party is not a political party and in some cases "supports" Ds even this year. If incoming Rs do not emphatically support TP positions/proposals 2012 will be up for grabs - or worse, if a slightly-viable 3rd party arises and drains votes. Bullmoose, Grange...
