On my show. The first half of the first hour, and I’ll replay the segments in the third hour. A transcript will be up here asap. Fair use granted provided there is attribution.
The bottom line: Good momentum in most places,a surprising surge in Michigan, hope for Santorum and DeWine. Much much more. Listen or read.
Tomorrow’s headlines today. That’s what we do.
UPDATE: The transcript is up. Some key excerpts (but you should read the whole thing):
On the Senate races:
[T]here will be a Republican Senate.
On tomorrow’s “reporting” of “early data”:
We should be on guard against dirty data, and we should also be on guard against them attempting to, deliberately or not, to affect the outcome of the House races nationwide, because look, it’s a big country. This thing is going to come down to literally the final seats on the West Coast, and voters, particularly in California, need to know that their vote is going to matter, and that they need to go out and vote, and we need to discourage the national networks from doing what they did in 2000, and that is depressing turnout in the West by prematurely calling the election in the East.
On Kerry’s slander of the military:
But I think it’s been significant, just anecdotally, the speed with which the famed photograph from the Minnesota National Guard made its way around the internet. It just reminded people that there is within…there are elements within the Democratic Party, near the top of its leadership, who have a fundamental hostility to the American military. And he can dress this up all he likes. His immediate response was to say that anybody who thought this was an attack on the military was stupid. Well, the military thought that. Witness the picture from Iraq and a lot of others. And you’ll notice that he could make the charge in his own voice, he could make the issue, this inflammatory statement, backed up by a news conference, in which he went after the White House, saying he wasn’t going to be Swift Boated. He could go on Imus and continue to defend it, but when it came time to issue the apology, Senator Kerry issued a written statement.
On turnout tomorrow:
I think the Republicans will increase over ’02. I think the Democrats will increase over ’02. I think that what will happen is that we’re likely to see more independents sit out this election.
