Whistling Past the Graveyard?
Posted by: Dale Franks on Friday, October 20, 2006

I'm starting to see stuff like this appearing on some of the Republican cheerleading blogs. In this case, it's Dean Barnett, who writes:
Actually, I’m beginning to get the sense that November 7 may not be a disaster at all. The Republican base will never make as much noise as the nutroots. Add to that the fact that the Democrats’ noise gets further amplified through the mainstream media’s megaphone and you have a real difference in volume. But I’m beginning to think the noise doesn’t reflect electoral reality. It didn’t in 2002, it didn’t in 2004, and it didn’t even on Election Day in 2004 when the exit polling of actual voters (as opposed to typical polling which desperately tries to figure who likely voters are) was horrendously inaccurate.

Another thing: I’m just not seeing the left moving. Ned Lamont may well turn out to be liberalism’s croaking canary in the coal mine.
All I can say is, that's a pretty bold statement when the Tradesports contract for GOP control of the house is at 32 on the last trade. People who are putting their money an the deal don't seem quite as optimistic.

A number of my friends bought Cicso in the $30-$40 range... and are still waiting.

Then again, look at the amount of money that was spent in such places on John Kerry. And Al Gore, before him.

And since the futures markets correctly predicted the outcomes, it was money well spent.

My guess here is you’re jumping a little early.
Interestingly, Barrons seems to agree.
