Liberals Think the End Is Near
Democrats are bracing for the fall:
You know it could be bad in 2010 for Democrats and liberals when some of the most dedicated liberals in this part of the country are warning within their press organs for their people to prepare for the coming political apocalypse. Furthermore, when Democrats become scared that a gospel-singing farmer might defeat an old political veteran like State Sen. Roy Herron for an open congressional seat, the Tennessee Democratic Party appears to be in far worse shape than previously expounded on in these pages.
For all of the talk among dedicated Democrats about politics running in cycles, what we are seeing develop in Tennessee and around the country is beyond the mere cyclical comeback of Republicans. If current political trends continue, Democrats will have squandered their majority status in less than four years' time. The sad part for Democrats (and pleasing part for Republicans) is that every bit of it could have been prevented.
