You Know Republicans Are Scared When...

one feels it necessary to use this line in defending his party:

"Dennis Hastert didn't kill anybody."

Rep. Christopher Shays, far from the baddest of the bunch, spoke these words yesterday proceeding the following:

"I know the speaker didn't go over a bridge and leave a young person in the water, and then have a press conference the next day," the embattled Connecticut congressman told The Hartford Courant in remarks published Wednesday.

WOW, right? If one were thrown into the world of politics, not having read upteen polls showing Republicans falling out of favor with a majority of voters, one would still find this line of reasoning quite desperate, I think. and i find it HILARIOUS, which is why, though it does not fall into anything relating to a certain delicious Mexican fast food establishment, I want to highlight it.

I don't have enough faith in the goodness and sensibility of American voters to expect some heartening election results on November 7 so I must delight in whatever possible before yet another November doomsday.
