So news is coming out that Evan Bayh is not going to seek re-election. President Obama is getting less popular by the day. Conservatism is resurgent! That can only mean one thing:
We are poised for the GOP to get overconfident and do something really stupid.
It is way too much to hope that sensible minds will prevail here. The fact that Sarah Palin and J.D. Haynesworth are getting all of the press is not a good sign for the GOP. Perhaps they are fine when conservatism is on the outs but not when we need sober, sensible and serious leadership to govern. Whoever replaces Obama is going to (to use his favorite term) inherit an enormous debt and that is going to take some ugly cutting to get a handle on.
