Pathos & bathos

By Michael J. Smith on Monday October 9, 2006 09:13 PM

JSP earlier posted -- without attribution, the snake -- an item from the AFL-CIA blog, to wit:
Easily forgotten is how close 15 of the Republicans’ victories were in 1994. Had Democrats in key districts won a combined 52,000 more votes, there would have been no “Speaker Gingrich.”

... You can be sure that on Nov. 8 there will be another list of races decided by such small margins. It’s up to us whether those names will deliver change or more of the same.

That last line made me laugh -- a long, harsh, bitter laugh. I can't imagine a better way to ensure "more of the same" than voting for a Democrat.

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
