Don't be so sure that it was intentional. What you have to remember is the Republicans do not have a monopoly on big money and dirty tricks. THERE IS
cheating in every election, make no mistake. Maybe in this case the two sides just cheated equally and offset one another, thus causing the polling
trends and results to match up.
The Republicans DID need to do badly in this election, because the more power they hold the more trouble they get themselves into, and for that same
reason they COULDN'T HELP but do bad this election. It seems to me that the simplest answer is most likely the correct one, and that's that the
Republicans screwed up real bad and as a consequence both they and the American people felt like it might be time for the GOP to catch its breath and
get its act together while the Democrats take their turn at screwing America.
The problem with the "fake us out then take over the government in 2008" theory is that it wouldn't matter very much. If they're going to use that
power to any end more nefarious than what Americans have already resigned themselves to as business as usual in DC, they'll be in for a fight
regardless of whether or not people believe the election was legit. It's not as if the Republicans can just up the ante again and again and people
will say "well, we asked for it at the polls". Either the sheeple will say "bah" and let it happen, regardless, or else they'll finally draw the
line and fight, regardless.
Think about it. If Big Brother tries to confiscate your gun, draft your kid, or carry out some more sinister agenda that we might conceive, are the
election results even going to be a part of that discussion, or will the entire debate pretty much consist of you racking your shotgun and ordering
them to leave? I think for most people, the answer is the latter.
