Novakula was on Meet the Press this morning, and in an offensively lame attempt to downplay the importance of the upcoming midterms he actually made the claim, "This is going to be one of the least important elections that I have even seen."
Um, are you kidding me?!
Actually, this is something of an interesting tact that he's pursuing, this way when the GOP loses its majority in the House and possibly the Senate, he can sit on his throne and spouting all manner of nonsense like, "Hey, don't worry about it! It's really no big deal." He probably should have amended his statement since, in his mind, if the Dems win control, then it's no big deal, but if the GOP holds on, then it's a huge deal because it's just more proof that Americans support Bush and his policies.
One of the arguments he makes in an effort to prove the unprovable is that yes the Dems will have subpoena power, but that really doesn't mean all that much because the GOP had subpoena power back during the Clinton years and they were not effective in their efforts. Of course, this completely ignores the fact that the reason why the GOP was not "effective" in their investigations is because Clinton hadn't done anything wrong in almost all of these instances! Wow, there's an concept! But of course, this doesn't register with a hack like Novak. How about this, Bobby - we Dems win control of one or both houses of Congress, we'll start investigating Bush and then we'll see just how effective subpoena power can be. Sound good?
I truly believe that we're in uncharted territory here as the GOP bobbleheads are officially off of their daily talking points. How so? Well, here's Novakula telling us that these elections don't mean all that much, but then you have Sean Hannity crapping himself in abject fear of the Dems winning this November. I mean, he's begging Dem voters to stay home so that they do not participate in the downfall of the United States by electing a Dem Congress, but in Novak's mind, nobody should give a rat's patootie. You're starting to confuse me, fellas. I liked it better when you were always on the same page.
