In wave elections like this one, the party coming on strong will almost always win the close races.
That is why the vast majority of close House and Senate races on Tuesday will eventually go to Republicans.
It just seemed a few months ago that Tom Tancredo gave up his House seat and vanished into well-deserved obscurity.
Now he's back.
His refusal to back the Rhode Island candidate for governor from his own party certainly raises the question.
It is not as if Frank Caprio is a hopeless outsider, he's actually neck and neck in the polls.
I concur and have made that argument in these columns frequently in the past, much to the derision of many, I have to say.
So welcome aboard New York Magazine.
The latest numbers from the Pennsylvania senate race show a curious comeback by Joe Sestak, the former no-hoper who has suddenly closed to within a few points of raging favorite, Republican Pat Toomey.
Insiders say it is partly due to the fact that ads and stories about Irish American Christine O'Donnell in next door Delaware spill over into Pennsylvania and are having an impact.
With a crazy lady next door, voters appear to be looking at the Republican slate in their own state and wondering if there are bats in the belfry there too.
I have to say I agree with Latinos for Reform that Latinos are wasting their time voting for Harry Reid and his ilk in the upcoming election.
All the Democrats have done for two years is the old bait and switch , pretending to care about comprehensive immigration reform yet doing nothing about it.
"That's so funny, because I don't think I've ever met that gal, Maureen Dowd -- O'Dowd -- whatever the heck her name is Palin told a Fox News reporter when asked about Dowd
"I don't think I've ever met her, and I don't think -- she probably hasn't met Jan Brewer or some of these other wonderful, pleasant, gracious, nice, hard-working mama grizzlies who are wanting to turn this country around.
While her Republican colleagues hem and haw about Christine O'Donnell their candidate for senate in Delaware she gets right to the point.
Kind of like her old man used to be actually. At 26 she's a chip off the old block, (they are pictured above), and may well have a political career ahead of her.
What human being alive could not feel an enormous surge of humanity and gratitude when miner Florencio Avalaos was brought to the surface from 2,400 feet below the surface in Chile?
The hug with his wife and child was the greatest news moment of the year perhaps the decade
Bill O'Reilly is fair and balanced.
He's probably the only one who is at Fox News but it is certainly better to have one person than none.
The hypocrisy of Lou Dobbs on the immigration issue has finally been exposed .
