Ah, Thursday! :-)

The pachyderm is much enamoured with Thursdays.  Not only are they Champagne Thursdays,* but it is also Ann DayFantastic discussion of typical midterm election results.  The party in control of the White House usually loses about 30 seats in the House & Senate (combined).  Sixth-year midterm elections are worse.  Yet, the Democrats are trumpeting a possible small margin of victory as a huge shift in American power.

Had to be mentioned… but John Kerry is the Republicans best friend.    Thanks to the blogosphere, talk radio, and Fox News, we actually know that the junior senator from my home state thinks that only stupid, lazy people end up in Iraq.  Most newspapers buried the story on their inside pages (or, as in the above, most of the way down the article).
