Ace: Charlie Cook's New Rating of Connecticut as a "Toss Up" Makes Me Want to Call My Best Bud Marco Rubio
Marco Rubio: Who is this? Who is this?
Police Dispatcher: He's calling from inside your house...!

Okay, come on, that one's cute.

Before I link the crap you already saw on Hot Air, here's a fresh picking: Charlie Cook now puts Connecticut as a "toss up."

Toss up. In Connecticut.

Okay, on to the hours-old crap:

At Hot Air, AP, one of the most reliably liberal-skewed polls, puts the GOP up by ten, and at over 50% -- 53/43.

Several people linked me this. Even AP isn't pretending anymore in the headlines. They have wishcasted themselves out.

AP-GfK Poll: Climate for GOP keeps getting better

...


"I'm going to do everything in my power to make sure that they're out of office," said independent voter Robbin Payton of Newport News, Va., reflecting just how toxic the environment is for the party in power.

Overall, it's an extraordinarily dreary backdrop for Obama's beleaguered party. And with just seven weeks until Election Day, Democrats are running out of options to mitigate widespread expected losses of House, Senate and governor's seats from coast to coast on Nov. 2.

Ed Morrissey explains how CBS maintains Obama still has 45% (but only 45%) approval. Another poll with an 8.5% Democrat skew, which they... round up to an even 10%.

Because, you know, that's what the polls are showing. Oh wait, no, most polls are showing parity between the parties for the first time in generations.

This has nothing to do with any of that, but have to give a mention of a columnist in the UK Telegraph mentioning our little blog.

On Tuesday, Carl Paladino scored another big Tea Party victory in New York, winning the Republican nomination for governor. He quoted, as have many others, the anguished cry of Howard Beale in the 1976 film Network "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this any more!" If anything, it understates the strength of anti-establishment feeling. The mood is closer to H L Mencken's observation, prominent on the Ace of Spades conservative blog, that "every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats".

Huh, right? And I know the irony there -- I personally have been more "don't rock the boat" than "go slit throats" -- but still, hey, an oversees shout-out is an overseas shout-out.

Thanks for krukke1 for that last tip.
