In the past few days both George War Bush and Duck! Cheney have loudly and confidently said that the Republicans will retain control of Congress in the elections this fall. This is a political ploy. I remember in 2000 when Bush was not much on substance, but would often say that he was going to win. I’m not sure about all the details of this ploy, but I know it is a ploy, just like if you’re a politician you are supposed to ask for the vote – whenever speaking to a group of people, always say, “Please vote for me in November.” These are some ways of manipulating voters. Act confident; ask for the vote – these things work, especially on people who don’t do much reading, or who don’t really care much about the nuances of a logical argument. Let us hope it doesn’t work this time. Let us hope that on November 8 the Republicans have to once again eat their words, just like they have had to eat them recently with regard to their pre-war statements of 2002 and 2003.
