Feeding frenzy in D.C....

The media, led by the Cable networks, are going crazy over the Foley scandal. They smell blood! This morning the Washington Times is calling for Speaker Hasert to resign.

Maybe this will pass in a couple of days...or maybe the Republicans will have to come up with a new leadership team. Anyway, the unfolding story in DC seems to point towards a Democratic landslide in November. Of course one should not discount Karl Rove in this situation. His people may be able to come up with a Democratic Congressman who has some bad skeletons in his closet.

I used to believe that we could expect an "October surprise"...such as a military strike on Iran. That seems less likely than it did a month ago. But who knows! This is all about holding on to power.
