Carol Platt Liebau: What Goes Around . . .

What Goes Around . . .

The cautious optimism of many in the GOP is being reflected in the preemptive excuse-making of some Democrats.

According to this piece in today's New York Times, the Democrats are concerned about black voter turnout (not a new phenomenon in the McCaskill race, it's worth noting).

The Times opines:

[T]here are worries among Democratic strategists in some states that blacks may not turn up at the polls in big enough numbers because of disillusionment over past shenanigans.

As noted over at American Thinker, the word "shenanigans" actually and inaccurately implies some wrongdoing on the part of Republicans. Hardly a surprise for the left-wing gray lady.

What's more remarkable, however, is how Democrats may, once again, end up reaping what they sowed. They've made spurious claims of election fraud for years now, hoping that left-wing voter anger would result in increased turnout. It may not work that way.

It's a little like the blowback on the Democrats who have stoked irrational Bush hatred for political gain, and then turn around and express shock at the result.

Republicans WILL keep the House and the Senate in '06 and all three in '08!
