I feel like Randy Quaid in Major Lague for saying this, but it’s how I feel.
Right now, the Democrats have what looks like an easy enough mid-term election ahead of them. The GOP is crouched and ailing from scandal and failed policy. Bush is at his lowest approval of his presidency.
Hell, the Democrats are even starting to show their teeth a little and seem to be uniting. They are endeavoring to outline plans for national security among other changes; they are starting to move on the offensive.
But I’ve got no confidence in them. They couldn’t run a strong candidate in 2000 or 2004, and as a result allowed both elections to narrowly go to Bush. They lost two senate seats in 2002 and four in 2004. Seven house seats in ’02, three in ’04.
This year the House and one-third of the Senate are up for election. And it just looks too good to be true.
And despite my optimism, that the Democrats might prevail, and that they would then actually do the right things, I have this nagging need to cry out, like Randy Quaid’s character.
As a side note, apparently he was not credited in either Major League or Major League II for his role.
