Downside of a GOP Win

To borrow a line from Glenn Reynolds,


Stanley Kurtz has great fun describing the downside of an unexpected (by the media) GOP retention of both Houses of Congress. I don’t want to spoil the fun, but here’s his take-away:
No doubt, there are those who will dismiss all this as implausible scare-mongering. Profanity at liberal political websites, Democrats rooting for America to lose a war, the end of open and fair exchange on America’s college campuses, efforts to stop military recruitment, suicidal infighting over foreign policy in the party of Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman: I admit that it all sounds implausible. It certainly bears little resemblance to the America that once was. Nonetheless, I greatly fear that a last-minute Republican victory could usher in some or all of these consequences. So before you push that lever, think long and hard about the dangers of a Republican win.
(Irony Alert: Opposition party participants may find the linked piece difficult to understand.)


For the next 48 hours or so, for any Election 2006 pieces, I’ll link to Andi’s World, in support of Andi’s Get the MILBLOG Vote Out Campaign!
