12. nice of usn&wr to dismiss a groundswell as mere "poll numbers"
as if there's nothing to it any more than a random blip.

democrats couldn't POSSIBLY have found their courage in a major electoral victory or in a dire situation in iraq or in the fact that we know we're right.

no, we have courage only because we're slaves to polls and we got lucky this time.
