I actually think his first response was to contact every writer, ad person, campaign manager, etc., and then order about 10,000 copies of this made and distributed.
Then he called Bush and said, "Hey George, remember when we were talking about the congressional elections the other day? Remember how you said we needed some sort of miracle to keep our majority? Well, you asked for a miracle - I give to you John Forbes Kerry."
And I still only think it's about 50-50 who wins. First, when was the last time a poll was run that didn't overstate Democratic support by 3-4 percentage points?
And second, John Kerry just reminded every hard-core conservative that while he or she may be disgusted by Mark Foley, they're even more disgusted by John Kerry. All that visceral distaste from the '04 Presidential re-election just resurfaced. The percent of Republicans voting in this election just rose by 10%.
And we wonder how Kerry could manage to lose an election against a President having a terrible time with a war and with a struggling economy. What a screw-up.
