News from the Votemaster

Brendan Johnson, the son of Sen. Tim Johnson (D-SD), is optimistic about his father's recovery and his ability to resume his duties as senator. Here is an interview with Brendan. His recovery is welcomed by the many people rooting and praying for him, of course. It also spares the Republicans a most unpleasant predicament that probably won't occur now. Imagine that Johnson's condition takes a turn for the worse and he goes into a deep coma and he is kept "alive" on life-support machines. Suppose that after several months and consultations with family and doctors, the senator's wife decides the situation is hopeless and wants to turn off the machines. Would the Republicans in the Senate try to corral a couple of pro-life Democrats and ram through an emergency law to prevent Johnson from being disconnected (as they did for Terri Schiavo)? This choice would make it clear whether they cared more about principle or power. But hopefully Sen. Johnson will fully recover and they can duke it out with him at the ballot box in 2008.

When you look at the map of the electoral vote in the 2004 election, you see a big red map with a bit of blue around the edges. Not so if you look at which party holds the governorships at the moment. Take a look.
