Contact With America

Contact-With-America

Lets go back in time to, say, two weeks ago….

That’s when Adam Nagourney wrote this little piece in the NYT likening the ‘06 Mid-Term Election to that milestone event in ‘94.  But then, are the dynamics that different this year?  How much has the conservative revolution really changed?

I mean, if you just remove one letter, and replace one leading Congressional face with another (Foley are Newt being virtual look-alikes, anyway), is it that big a difference?

(By the way, today’s rumor is that Hastert wants to re-use the “CWA” slogan again …once he figures a way to switch the “W” to a “Y.”)
