Doom and gloom

The Democrats are doomed, doomed, I tell you, in the 2010 mid-term Congressional election!

That's the conventional big media narrative, anyhow. Could it be, like so much past received wisdom, wrong?

The Senate was never really in play. It's even less in play now:

There's even an opportunity for a Democratic pick-up in Ohio, where Bushist Ron Portman trails his Democratic opponent, although within the margin of error of the poll. In Kentucky, Rand Paul has a lead that's smaller than the margin of error, another opportunity to pick up a seat while Paul alternates which foot is planted firmly in his mouth.

No one expects the Democrats to gain seats in either house, but losing control of either house is much less likely than the teabagger narrative.
