Lots of criminals study law in prison. They can be smarter criminals when they are paroled.

August was a difficult month for Democrats, nearly more difficult than the same month last year when bombastic health care town hall meetings threatened to rip the reform effort apart at the seams, but this summer has seen more of a quiet implosion of Democrats' chances in the fall for retaining control of Congress, as poll after poll offers more good news for Republicans.

And September is kicking off no differently than August. On Thursday, respected nonpartisan analyst Larry Sabato added to the picture with an updated projection of a 47-seat upset in the House for Representatives, well above the 39 seats required to flip control to the GOP.

The University of Virginia professor told Fox News, "There's absolutely no doubt at this point it's a Republican year and very probably a very big Republican year," adding that "this is going to be very significant because, at least according to our projections, Republicans could essentially wipe out the gains that Democrats made in the House of Representatives in the 2006 and 2008 combined."

And that appears to be the lower end of Sabato's projections, in other words, the professor said, "That number could go up by November."

If the people of Ohio vote this scumbag back into political power, they deserve every harm he'll inflict on them.

Gee ... just because he was a lying, swindling, self-profiteering, corporate-whoring scumbag the LAST time he held public office doesn't mean he'll be one THIS time ...
