Only one week to go till the midterm elections. It’s hard to make predictions, but I think the Democrats will win back the House. The Senate is a toss-up. I’d love to see both, but I’ll take one, just to see some oversight of the Bush administration.
I’m not saying that every Democratic incumbent or challenger is better than every Republican incumbent or challenger (see William Jefferson). But if we don’t get W and co. under control, our country may be irrevocably damaged. If we have a Democratic House and an evenly divided Senate, maybe we can restore habeas corpus. And I still can’t believe I have to hope for that.
Ah, well. It’s a good night for escapism. We haven’t had many trick-or-treaters so far, so it might be a good time to have a Buffy Halloween episode marathon. If you aren’t a fan, you should be.
