After the 2004 election I was quite vocal about wanting a viable second party. I will say the Democrats have come quite a long way since then. If you take the new blood on the scene in Jim Webb and Harold Ford you will find very little of the baby-boomer narcissism and navel gazing that affected most of the 2004 candidates.
There is starting to be a concensus plan on Iraq among Democrats as well, in the form of partition. I think that is the option we will take (along with looking the other way on ethnic cleansing) once all the others are exhausted, which should be in around 10 months or so.
All that being said, none of them are any closer to me ideologically (except for the partition, which I do like) than the Republicans but new blood will probably not be as talented at corruption as the current folks.
Not that I think the dems will take the House or Senate, but I do think they will take some seats.

This action is wholly irrevocable and utterly non-undoable.
For the next ten days or so. I’ve got a crushing workload until then.
Also, I apologize if I’ve been rude or distant or anything like that lately. Everything is getting to me more than it usually does.
The fiddle series continues. On this particular occasion I got the lighting on most of the shots wrong, but some of them turned out well nice. Check out Overstreet at the Overlook, featuring the lovely and talented Michelle.
I came across an interesting Sin City effect with levels in, as seen below.
This guy was on my screen door on Thursday and Friday
An ordinary stairway. There were some nice lines here. I decided to make it creepy via the use of Photoshop Curves. It’s an interesting effect.
