Mind you, it won't be the reason the Democrats win, either.

Who would have thought that I'd be reading Right Wing News today and find myself in total agreement with something they said? In summing up what the Republicans can fall back on to win the midterm elections, the blog identifies what arrows the GOP has in its quiver going into November:

The first is their vaunted, "Get Out The Vote," program. The second is their significant cash advantage over the Democrats.... If the GOP is going to win the election, we're probably going to have to beat the Democrats 4 to 1 in districts that look to be toss-ups right now. The good news is that with the kind of cash advantage that Republicans have, pulling off that kind of winning streak isn't out of the question.
Excellent. Then we're agreed: if the GOP wants to win they've got to make with the gladhanding and the gift baskets. After all, you'd have to be a thumbsucking idiot to suggest that the GOP were going to win based on their six years of running the country and their record of cogent policy decisions. Truer words were never blogged.
