James Carville spots a cunning plan

'Dear [redacted],

If you ever feared that Republican operatives were sitting in some dark room plotting how to destroy the Democratic majorities and progressive policies we've worked so hard to create, your fear is real.

At the beginning of this month, more than two dozen Republican candidates met in Idaho for a three-day conference where they plotted behind closed doors to steal back political power, using a Karl Rove-style scheme to specifically target governorships.

Republican operatives have been very clear about their intentions. They believe that if they can win the two governors' races this year, they can win a whole bunch of the 37 races next year ... and they can use that to take back Congress.'

Email from James Carville. Who knew winning elections was stealing from the Democrats? I think we should have been told before now...

And boy, grade A prime machiavellian scheming, Repub dudes! Their plan is to win two races this year and then 37 next year? Did they sit up all night deciding that? I hope not. I can understand why Mr Carville might think that would happen. Any third-grader looking at the poll numbers and extrapolating them to the next 40, 50, 100 elections would almost certainly come to the conclusion that its going to be a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time until a Dem wins another one.

But keep those emails coming James! I need a good laugh.
