  •  If they do it (4.00)
    we'll not only run them out in 2006, they won't have any power left to them afterward.

    •  Dream-Come-True Scenario (4.00)
      They defeat us and ram the Patriot Act through.

      We take House and Senate in 06.

      The Patriot Act now works for US. Think:
      Plamegate vs. Patriot Act.

      •  Right. And no means of filibuster remains. (none)
        And when we take the Prez in 2008 we can appoint anyone we please to SCOTUS as long as we have the 50 Senators, not 60.

        They ain't pulling out nukes, folks.

      •  This is probably why I will never... (none)
        be President.

        I believe in vengeance.

        I imagine that my first official act would be to put the entire administration onto a CIA aircraft, and send them all of to Poland for a bit of extraordinarily renditious conversation.  They're all such cowards - we'd have the truth about the Plame outting, and everything else, in about ten minutes.
