“‘Twas the day after Christmas and all through the land, insanity reigned, the end is at hand….”

Woke up to this headline today: CNN Poll: GOP has edge in early midterm indicator.


As we approach midterm elections, GOP candidates have a 49% to 47% edge over Democrats. Bookmarked by headlines announcing this Congress to be the worst in history, CNN tells us that voters are leaning Republican in the upcoming election. Who in God’s name are they surveying? Mental patients? Crack heads? How could this possibly be after Republicans shut down the government for no other reason than they could and cost the U.S. billions of dollars with their stupidity?

At the same time that states are falling like dominoes in favor of same-sex marriage, legalizing marijuana, and generally opposing the Republican agenda, we’re being told that voters are leaning toward Republicans.

After years of inane, insane, bigoted comments; opposition to science; pro-corporate shilling; open disdain for the poor, minorities, women and the needy; and mind-blowing hypocrisy, voters are leaning toward Republicans.

Because the Affordable Care Act didn’t roll out smoothly, voters are going to elect more of the same people who contributed to the worst Congress in American history. That makes about as much sense as cutting off a finger to take your mind off of your toothache. In other words, it’s insane.

Is CNN’s poll flawed or are American voters really that deaf, dumb and blind?
