Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Have a Happy Thanksgiving everybody! (And a hat tip to Rhode Island's Future for the cartoon.)

  • MyDD's Singer has October estimates up for the DSCC's and the NRSC's respective fundraising takes; and, again, the DSCC edges the NRSC $3.1 million to $2.9 million. October cash-on-hand-minus-debt for the DSCC stands at $20.9 million, compared to the NRSC's $9.5 million, a more than two-to-one advantage for the DSCC.

  • Alaska: It continues to look bad for ol' Ted Stevens:

    Only 44 percent of Alaska voters said they approved of Alaska Republican Sen. Ted Stevens’ performance in office, while 38 percent disapprove. Stevens has been a stalwart in Alaska politics since he was first elected in 1968, and the six-point net approval rating is one of his lowest-ever levels of support.
  • Virginia: Are the VA-GOP and conservative establishment preparing to throw former Governor Jim Gilmore under the bus in favor of fresh-faced Chris Saxman? If Gilmore's poll numbers continue to look this atrocious, the powers-that-be in the GOP might be happy with anything else.

  • Would it have been the worst thing in the world to have named one of the turkeys "Scooter"?
