I Have Seen The Future, and It Looks Like the Present

2010 is coming up. There are those that say dolphins will point the way toward the stars and Russians will mangle our idiomatic phrases in a charming way. Others insist that midterm congressional elections will result in a stunning landslide victory for Republicans, wiping out the Democrat majority.

Nate Silver hasn't weighed in on the dolphin question (nor have the dolphins, publicly) but he is of the opinion that the balance of power won't change much net year. He cites as evidence a couple of recent elections in California and Iowa. Well, see for yourself. And know it's just evidence, it's not proof. The proof will be coming on the first Wendesday in November a little over a year from now.

I am very wary of all these pronouncements that the GOP will gain in the midterms.
