The same thing will happen in 2012 ~ Democrats are burdened with several tens of millions of voters who think all you have to do is vote for President and your stuff goes to the top of the pile.
BTW, in 2006, about 26,000,000 Republican voters who'd showed up in 2004 didn't show up!
That's the year the big campaign issue was Mark Foley and the failure of the Republican leadership in the House to address that problem head on.
Now a guy can't even shave his chest, so that situation may be fixed. The Democrats also disposed of Rep. Masa in a New York second! Seems to be some agreement on the place of gay blades ~ they can get married, but stay outta' the Congress and the Page program.
Redo your numbers.
