The Washington Post knows what the real story is.
GOP strategists know well that no political party has successfully weathered a midterm election with such an unpopular president in office. Bush's challenge as he campaigns in the final days of the election is to find a way to excite and mobilize a fractured Republican base without triggering an even bigger turnout among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents that could cost his party the House or Senate.

Milbloggers respond at Mudville Gazette and Blackfive. From a Navy man. And, milblogger John Noonan has the nerve to try some intellectual ladder climbing by using the word "pellucid" in a blog post. Just who does he think he is? A Senator?
Speaking of a John I like, Noonan is heading up my team in the Valour-IT fundraiser. We're Team Air Force, and we've raised more than $11K for this great project already. The charity buys voice-activated laptops for soldiers recovering from hand and arm injuries and amputations.Donate through the Air Force button on John's page because I can't get the dumb button code to work on my blog.
