I ask this question very seriously. Really. I'm a 4th generation registered Democrat. Who voted for Bush. And I think that if the Democrats try to filibuster Roberts (as is intimated by THIS ANNOUCEMENT BY KERRY, and by their treatment of the Bolton nomination on the very same issue ), and if their leadership keeps spewing forth "Gitmo = gulag" tirades, and if Iraq continues to progress on the political front (and if we start to draw down our troops by the end of next year), then the Democrat Party will be lucky to hold on to 175 seats in the House, 39 seats in the Senate. EVEN WITH THE +15% THEY GET FROM THE ANTI-GOP BIAS OF THE LEFT-WING DOMINATED MSM!
Of course, there is a way that they can avoid DISASTER: they can start being supportive of OUR side in the GWOT!
UPDATE: The NYTIMES is reporting this: "Democrats Prepare Ground to Challenge Judge Roberts". Sheesh. If the Dems had HALF as much vitriol for the Jihadists as they do for Bolton and Bush -- (and as they did for AshKKKroft - and almost ANYONE Bush appoint want to, it seems) -- then the GWOT WOULD BE OVER!
