GOP in trouble?

I'm superstitious so I don't like to make predictions for fear of jinxing them but this gives me some hope we can break the GOP stranglehold on the government in 06. It appears that Republicans only want to run if they're pretty sure they can win. According to the WaPo today, candidates are getting hard to come by for 06 and my useless Senator, Liz Dole, is not having a lot of success in recruiting viable contenders.

Some of the party faithful shrug off the current GOP malaise as a passing trend and it's true that a lot can happen in a year. However considering the White House's crash course for disaster doesn't appear to veering off into common sense or fiscal responsibility, one might think the electorate will be no less surly after paying their heating bills this winter and watching the death toll mount as Iraq sinks further into a civil war once the sham constitutional elections are over, just to name to top two obstacles.

Whether the Dems can capitalize on this and gain an stronger foothold remains to be seen, but if they don't snap to it and start offering an opposition platform, I'd be willing to bet that third party candidates will enjoy unprecendented showings at the polls.

If you don't believe me, check out this straw poll in the Alabama governor's race. Libertarian candidate Loretta Nall is leading the pack, showing double the support for Roy Moore.

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."
