Democrats lying about what left-wing moonbats they are, and the press not calling them on it.

if Brad Henry can win in OK by more than 10 points he will be the top Dem VP Candidate in 2008.


There must be someway Henry can be beaten.

You think so? I kind of doubt it. But he will win by way more than 10 and there's no way to stop him.

If he can win by 10 points in Oklahoma as a Democrat he will be a contender.

If this is any indication of Democrat prospects this election, the GOP is in for a bloodbath. I suspect six years of unrelenting negative propaganda from the MSM against Bush and the GOP Congress -- negative propaganda which has largely gone unanswered and unrebutted (if that's a word) -- is about to have it's effect this November. The only good news about a Democrat wipe-out of Republicans is that it comes this year, and hopefully will have the effect of a major slap in the face to feckless national Republicans, and will enable to party to regroup for 2008.

Lackluster Republican campaigning. To this day, I have not seen ONE Istook ad since the primaries.

I take heart in the optimism of Ken Mellman. And Rove. They are not sitting idle. Lastly, the MSM has toned down the bloodbath stories. Methinks the worm has turned. Time will tell...

To be honest, I do too. Frankly, I'm more concerned with the congressional elections than the state ones. Sure, I'll hate to see more govenorships and statehouses go to Dems, but it's absolutely essential that we keep control of Congress.

Timing FRiend. The latest from Drudge:

"AD BLITZ UNLEASHED Tue Sep 26 2006 18:25:05 ET The Republican Party has unleashed a long-planned battery of negative ads against Democratic challengers in House and Senate races across the country, employing the fruits of more than a year of research into the backgrounds of Democratic candidates. Just as Democrats have launched an unusually aggressive barrage of negative advertisements intended to tie Republican incumbents to an extremely unpopular Congress, and portray them as captives to big business, pharmaceutical concerns and the oil industry. NEW YORK TIMES reporter Adam Nagourney plans a Page One Splash for Wednesday, declaring: "The result has been what aides to both sides described on Tuesday as the most toxic midterm political environment in memory."

I have not seen one ad either from Istook or Hiett. Worst campaigns I have seen in a long time!

Sorry I don't agree. I think we will gain seats in both houses in 06. Also we must pass legislation requiring photo IDs to vote in federal elections. This as passed the house and is on th the Senate.

I have heard Gov Bredesen in TN is another one the Dems might look to in order to win some GOP leaning states. Also look for Gov Sebelius of KS to be mentioned as a VP candidate in '08.

Don't base it on Oklahoma as we have some of the worst candidates ever. Henry hasn't done anything and runs as a conservative Dem even though he isn't. He made deals with the Republican House of Reps here all the time instead of the Dems.

Look for Hiett to close the gap and beat Askins.

Istook has been a horrible candidate since day one for a variety of reasons including Abramhoff.

GOP is going to do just fine here in OK in our Federal elections. It is the statewide races that are bad. Also look for us to take the OK Senate and keep the House because we have a lot of good candidates running there as well. If J.C. had run for Governor, it would be a whole different story and Henry would be toast.

Can Istook get with it and eke out a win?
