The Magnificent Seven

Oh boy, Karl Rove will grind their bones to make his bread...

Seven prominent American Republicans have gone public to say that it will be better for their country for the Democrats to win this year's Congressional elections.

Frankly, I'm not sure that's true... I suspect that, regardless of what happens in the elections, the damage is done, and the Democrats aren't anywhere near radical enough to undo the damage. They'll tinker around the edges, being slightly fluffier than the Republicans, not quite so evil as the neo-cons, but still treat the rest of the world as their private playground, still do nothing to wean the country off foreign oil, still kow-tow to the billionaires. And when the bubble bursts, as it will, it will be Democrats who get the blame because it was their hand on the steering wheel, even though it was Bush and his cronies who set the course and welded the accelerator to the floor.

Still, if there is any chance of avoiding a major disaster, the neo-cons aren't the people to do it.
