Maybe ...

Lyn Davis Lear ... otherwise unknown to me, but probably not to her psychiatrist.. blogs:

All week I've been reading in disparate sources from Drudge to US News and World Report about Bush, Rove and Cheney being overly confident about the midterm elections. Even Republican strategists are increasingly concerned because the White House doesn't have a plan if they lose. This lack of planning shouldn't surprise anyone, but if you really think about it a creepy, crawly feeling grows in your gut.

Here are some questions: Are these guys simply narcissistic idiots Rove-ing around in some never-never land bubble or do they know something we don't? Have they planned a grab bag nose punch of an October/November surprise? Or have Diebold, ES&S, and local state secretaries assured them that they will do "whatever it takes" to get a Republican Congress elected again? Or are they just planning to outspend us?
She goes on to reveal that some of her friends also hold paranoid delusions.

Maybe Rove et al have really good poll data, as they have had in the past, that indicates that are going to do ok. Or maybe they are simply realists who know that no matter what the outcome on election day, they will have to govern, and whining about it is not going to change anything.

But then, the left could not comprehend that.
