Newsmax's David Patten goes apocalyptic in describing what he thinks will happen to Democrats in today's election, as intimated by the headline "Debacle of Historic Proportions Looms for Democrats":
Tsunami. Earthquake. Hurricane. Even as pundits struggle to find new metaphors to describe the scope of the GOP landslide expected on Tuesday, the latest polls indicate the midterm grass-roots wave could be even more powerful than analysts are predicting.
Respected political gurus Charlie Cook and Stuart Rothenberg said Monday morning that a 60-seat GOP gain in the House is possible, and a six- to eight-seat GOP gain in the Senate is likely.
"If we're wrong, it's higher," Cook told the audience of MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
Like a clarion warning of an impending catastrophe, a new Gallup/USA Today poll released Monday indicates that Democrats could be in for a political bloodletting of historical proportions.
Patten also quotes "Longtime GOP strategist Roger Stone" offering his opinion (which, needless to say, mirrors that of Patten's). This would be the same guy who we saw marching in the New York gay pride and exchanging licks with a fellow participant.
Stone's outside-the-GOP-lifestyle life surfaced most recently when New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino -- whom Stone had been advising to the tune of $1 million -- made some anti-gay remarks.
Patten had previously touted how "Paladino's campaign reportedly received an important boost from GOP political operative Roger Stone," but Newsmax did not report on the Paladino-Stone gay controversy.
