Blue America?

How bizarre... It's interesting to visually identify the shift in public opinion over the last few years, which I found through an Austin blog called Casual Soapbox. Here's an animated GIF:

And surprisingly, polls show that Democrats in Congress have had a 15% or greater advantage over the GOP in terms of congressional election prospects. But I'm certain this is only because people think that nobody could possibly do worse than our current situation. The Dems currently in Congress are a largely disorganized, inconsistent, incoherent, unprincipled politicos for whom I have very little respect - just look at how they have reacted to Feingold's call for censure.

Note about Feingold: He's the joint author of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill, he was the only Senator to vote against the original Patriot act, he aggressively grilled Alito on important (and occasionally taboo) questions during his confirmation hearings, and he has very few friends amongst Republicans or Democrats because he is so principled and "uncooperative". He's also a contender for the 2008 Presidential Race. These are certainly interesting times...
