Not as Bad as Santorum

posted by on October 18 at 16:57 PM

Here’s what conservative TV head Robert Novak has to say about Mike McGavick’s chances: “His polls look more promising than Santorum’s” … And, well, that’s about it. (Santourm is at 40%).

Here’s Novak:

The quest of former Safeco CEO Mike McGavick (R) to unseat Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) also appears to have floundered, even though his polls look more promising than Santorum’s.

And Novak’s analysis of all the Democratic Senate seats that are in play?

Likely Democratic Retention

1. Michigan (Stabenow)

2. Minnesota (Open [Dayton])

3. Nebraska (Nelson)

4. Vermont (Open [Jeffords])

5. Washington (Cantwell)

6. West Virginia (Byrd)


Likely Republican Takeover

Leans Dem
1. Maryland (Open [Sarbanes])
2. New Jersey (Menendez)

Leans GOP

Oh, and what Novak doesn’t tell you about the Jeffords’s seat…It’s not going to a Democrat. It’s going to a Democratic Socialist.

It's called a Wave. And he's trying to downplay it, so you know it's way bigger than that.

It isn't "TV head Robert Novak", it's Robert-JoeWilson'sWife'sCoverBlowing-Novak... Novakula works too.

Had Novak credibility points to lose, he'd have lost some by failing to mention George Allen in Virginia as, at best, "Lean Republican". And that's what passes for good news for the GOP.

The quest of former Safeco CEO Mike McGavick

Did he just confuse Quest Field with Safeco Field?
