Headline of the Day

It’s over at Talking Points Memo:

Report: GOP “Broke,” Expecting To Lose More House Seats

Last week we brought you word that GOP House leader John Boehner and NRCC chief Tom Cole were locked in a power struggle for control of the NRCC amid increasing signs that NRCC strategists are in denial about just how bad the 2008 map looks for them.

Now there’s more. Top Republicans are conceding that the NRCC is all but broke and that another bloodletting is all but certain. As GOP Rep. Ray LaHood puts it with startling candor: “When you look at what’s going on in the House, the prospects for getting back on track are pretty dim at the moment.”

Yeah, I remember the story of the boy crying, "Wolf," from my childhood. Just like then...*DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!!!* They're just trying to lift your spirits and your hope before "the reveal"...and, just like Ty Pennington, I want to crush them but I know they're not going away for many more years...(unfortunately)

They just need to take another Contract on America. That blood money will get the GOP going again.

In other news, even tho the DC crowd is trying to pretend Sen. Clinton is the frontrunner, Sen. Obama is outraising her and has higher cash flow.

And the Gay Old Pervert fundraising will get even worse.

This is a classic Rove tactic. You lower expectations as much as you possibly can, then look like a hero when it doesn't turn out as badly as predicted.

Aw, shit, Dan - you thought you had problems (well, judging from today's column, maybe you do), but it could be worse. My cell phone number is ONE DIGIT off (in the area code) from NRCC's phone number. No joke. Lucky me, eh?
