The front page of The Washington Post on Sunday morning gave me all the information I needed to realize a rather dire prediction: Democrats are going to LOSE in November.
Here’s how the story begins:
Now on Democrats’ agenda: Budget cuts

The candidate was outraged – just outraged – at the country’s sorry fiscal state.
“We have managed to acquire $13 trillion of debt on our balance sheet,” he fumed to a roomful of voters. “In my view, we have nothing to show for it.”
And that was a Democrat, Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado, who voted “yes” on the stimulus, the health-care overhaul, increased education funding and other costly bills Congress approved under his party’s control.
Faced with a potential wipeout in November’s midterm elections, candidates such as Bennet are embracing budget cuts with the enthusiasm of Reagan Republicans.
Good idea. Let’s all us Democrats get wigged out and start running as if we’re Republigoats. That’s how we always win elections.
We’re gonna LOSE.
