White House Confidence


Amusing post from Cato's Jerry Taylor last week, worth reconsidering this morning:

According to a UPI story today, the Bush White House predicts that the GOP will shock the world and hold on to majorities in the House and Senate come Tuesday.

Keep that prediction in mind when assessing similar predictions about our inevitable victory in Iraq, as long as we resist the temptation to "cut and run."

In the face of all available evidence, NRCC Chair Tom Reynolds insisted this morning that last night was not a referendum on Iraq.  Rather, the election was about "isolated corruption cases," and "historical cycles" in voting habits.
