This email arrived yesterday from MoveOn, whose communications are generally indistinguishable from those of the Democratic Party. The subject line was “New York Times stunner.”


Republicans are trying to steal control of the U.S. Senate by making it harder to vote.

Pitch in to help defend the right to vote and stop Republicans from stealing the 2014 election.

This plea requires a certain chutzpah, as stealing elections at the polls has always been a Democratic specialty. I think what they are actually referring to is Republican efforts to ensure honest voting so that Democrats can’t steal elections.


Dear MoveOn member,

This is stunning: The New York Times’ data wizard Nate Silver—who predicted the 2012 election results state-by-state with uncanny accuracy—is now projecting that, “Republicans [are] close to even-money to win control of the [Senate] after next year’s elections.”

It’s the worst-case scenario: Republicans win a majority in the Senate, and we can kiss the rest of President Obama’s agenda goodbye.

So what is the rest of President Obama’s agenda? Inquiring minds want to know! But there evidently aren’t many inquiring minds among the Democrats, as these partisan communications never breathe a word of any positive program. They are exclusively about hating Republicans.


To make things worse, they have a plan to steal the 2014 election starting right now by making it harder for seniors, students, poor people, and African-Americans to vote.

This is insane, yet, repeated insistently and frequently enough, it has an effect.

Of course there is no "Hate" for conservatives or the Tea Party. Is Moveon.Org truly a 501(c) (3) or (4)? I don't think so.

Let me close with our usual reminder: the fact that the battle for Senate control appears to be very close right now does not guarantee that it will end up that way. Although Senate races behave more idiosyncratically than some other types of contests — local factors and candidate quality play an important role — one party has won the vast majority of tossup races in each of the past four election cycles.

In a strong Republican year, the G.O.P. could win all of the tossup and “lean Democratic” seats and pick up one of the “likely Democratic” seats like New Hampshire, which would give them a net gain of nine seats and leave them with a 55-45 majority in the chamber. In a strong Democratic year, the party could lose only West Virginia and South Dakota – and pick up New Jersey and one of Kentucky and Georgia – and hold their current 54-46 edge. It is therefore important to watch macro-level indicators – especially Mr. Obama’s approval ratings, the generic Congressional ballot and major economic measures – in addition to following the recruitment and polling in individual states.

It is equally important to look for early indications of whether G.O.P. primary voters will be more tolerant of moderate and “main street” Republicans than they were in 2010 and 2012. A strong set of Republican nominees could give the party as many as a dozen credible opportunities to pick up the seats they need – whereas a weaker series of candidates could require them to win almost all of the races that remained competitive after the primaries.

Well, he certainly knew his **** when it came to the Obama win, but I'm not so sure Republicans are going to hold their seats. That would presume that the bulk of Americans slept through the Republican shenanigans of the past three years.

Yeah. Imagine that! They want to restrict voting to legitimate citizens and only allow them to vote once each! The nerve! :roll:
