Its just four weeks (and two days) until the midterm elections. But thats a lifetime (or two) in politics, and its way too early for Speaker Nancy Pelosi or Minority Leader John Boehner to be staking claim to the fanciest digs in the US House of Representatives.

The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows the GOP edge in a generic poll asking which party should control Congress dropping from nine percentage points last month to just three points today. Gallup shows the generic poll essentially even, as does the POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Poll.

Way to fight fellow Democrats! Ignore the Rand Paul type operatives on liberal boards urging you to stay home. Ignore the 24/7 bombardment by corporate or billionaire funded campaigns trying to get you to vote Republican or to stay home. Ignore the corporate media narrative that Republican control of Congress is a slam dunk, and that it heralds a return to Bush-o-nomics and the policies of tax cuts to the very rich, and cuts in benefits to the very poor!

We are what stands between sanity and a world where folks like Sharron Angle, Rand Paul and Christine O' Donnell are legitimate voices in the Senate, a world where Jim DeMint suddenly looks like a moderate relative to his crazier breatheren.
