Why the GOP has already lost 2006
I love the smell of framing in the morning. It's the smell of: Victory for the Democrats.
Based on the current dynamic of political debate in America, the Republican Party seems slated to lose big in the 2006 mid-term elections. There may not be a full swing in the House of Representatives, but even if there is a more modest uptick in Democratic seats, the losses will be enough for heads to roll in the upper echalons of the GOP.
To all skeptics of political soothsayers, rest at ease. This tale of impending GOP collapse is no crystal ball incantation or tea leaf reading. The proof is in the framing. And the framing favors Democrats.
