"Pollsters swear that if Bush were to run against an anonymous Democrat right now, he would be roundly defeated." That was probably true in 2004 as well. The difficulty is, the Democrats have to pick somebody. They can't run 'anonymous.' However one might disagree with Bush's ideas, they are ideas -- real, living ideas. All the Democrats can do is keep mouthing rhetoric that had gotten stale twenty years ago -- it all refers to dogmas that have been demonstrated not to work. So when election time comes, the American electorate is faced with a choice between Dr Evil and Chicken Little. At least they can figure Dr Evil knows those aren't pieces of the sky falling on his head.
