    Gallup:

    Consumer pessimism, although still overwhelmingly high, has declined somewhat in the past several days -- particularly in terms of future economic expectations, with 83% of Americans saying economic conditions are "getting worse" -- down 7 points from last week and only 2 points worse than a month ago.

    Story here

    McCain from the other night:

    "Sen. Obama is ready for any contingency, even the possibility of a sudden and dramatic market rebound. I’m told that at the first sign of a recovery, he will suspend his campaign and fly immediately to Washington to address the crisis."

    *yawn* maybe that's because people know Bush is going to be out of office pretty soon.

    I actually think you're my kind of contributor .... I love how you take the red ticket going from worse to merely bad and call it a victory! It's good. Shows you are an optimist, and much better than whining and moaning about this or that.

    Good news is always bad news for the Dems who are constantly looking for more economic or political "victims" to exploit.

    This is indeed good news.

    "Only" 83% of americans think the economy is fucked.

    And I heard that George Dumbya Bush's approval rating surged up to 26%!

    Haven't seen the latest.

    But all the top Congressional election prognosticators are predicting Dems to pick up around 20 seats or more in the House.
