"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
Election Day 2003 (number 2) Tommorow is election day in Kentucky and Mississippi. Right now all the Governor's races look tight, but trending Republican. Based on the remarkable stepping up of on the ground Republican get-out-the-vote efforts in recent elections, the general malaise surrounding the Democratic party, and the popularity and efforts of President Bush, I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that Fletcher and Barbour--the Republicans from Kentucky and Mississippi, respectively--will each win with about 2 percent more of a margin than polls are showing right now.
While I'm making bold predictions, I'll predict that the trend in the race I care most about--Bobby Jindal vs. Kathleen Blanco in Louisiana--will continue moving Jindal's way, giving the GOP a 4-state sweep for the year when he prevails on November 15. I'm less confident on these than I was about the first race, but I've got a good feeling about this. We'll see how things go tommorow.
