Unease on the Left

Could it be that the Democrats have been counting their chickens before they've hatched?

There are reasons for optimism among Republicans. First, right now, it looks like the RNC will outspend the DNC on congressional races by a factor of 5. Second, it seems that Republicans simply run tighter, better-organized campaigns than Democrats. Finally, with national security issues front and center (and, as Bill Kristol points out, some reason at least to hope that Democrats have stepped into a national security trap), and gas prices going down, right now it seems that Republicans have some advantages that at least help neutralize the drumbeat of negativity that emanates so consistently from the MSM.
