I've been seeing a lot of charts and
graphs in web comics these days. Some are humorous,
some not. I began feeling a little left out so
I made this one for myself:
On a more serious and therefore
boring note, did you know that in almost every
ever held in this
country the party in power lost legislators?
I believe that only twice has the reverse been
true, that the party in power
actually gained congressmen in a mid-term. The
reason this happens is because there's always
remorse on the behalf of the electorate,
plus the smaller party is more hungry for the
win and therefore works a bit harder.
That explains why the Republicans, and their
little doppelgangers the Tea Party-ers, have
such ridiculous ideas lately. They know from
historical mathematics they can ride the coattails
of relative disinterest on the part of the Democrats.
Even if only one of them get elected on a platform
Social Security they can claim it's "the will
of the people" and Fox News will never shut up
So pay attention this fall and make a reasoned decision in
November. We need all the help we can get these days.
