Poll question: Norm Ornstein - AEI on the 2008 elections on CSPIN 1
he just admitted that even though congress has historically low numbers, on every issue of consequence, the democrats are heavily favored over the GOP.

"The GOP has a 50 lb weight around its neck"


AH, if only we had a conveniently located pond.

I wonder why the honesty from the AEI?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. Ornstein has actually been fairly straight on the issues
(election issues, not voter issues) and sees Obama winning IA by 9%.

3. He was a regular on Al Franken's show. Al used to sing "Norm in the USA" as an intro
He sang so badly that Orenstein asked him to stop doing it.

I used to love hearing what Norm had to say on the latest political happening. He is a very smart guy, with a sharp sense of humor!

4. Norm
is the "house liberal" at the AEI. But it's his ties (and others) that make me worry Al Franken will be just another AIPAC American Empire Democrat.

AEI is a DLC idea farm. They want to destroy corporate Republicans so they can replace them with corporate Democrats. That's why the honesty on this particular issue. On other issues, not so much.
