"It's not a question of whether he'll lose or not, it's a question of how bad." Said to me this

morning by a repub neighbor who was heavily politically involved in her community back in the day. I had asked how she liked the convention and she just shook her head a smiled. "The nuts are running the asylum." We then moved onto other subjects as there was no point in belaboring the point. I do like her, she tells it like it is. Local, and State contests are very, very important for us. GOTV is a priority..

4. He is going to get hammered. Badly.

The debates will finish Willard off once and for all.

But getting out and voting downticket is a big fuckin' deal, to quote Joe Biden.

10. "The nuts are running the asylum" comment pretty much sums it up.

11. hopefully it will be really, really, really bad

worse than they could ever imagine.

And hopefully, the coattails will bring a lot more movement left downticket.

I hope the fire in President Obama's belly doesn't burn out too soon, and he starts driving things back toward the center and then, dog willing, left of center.

This time, Mr. President, we will be holding your feet very much to the fire. You can start by replacing your pal Geithner.
