â€œThe masses have never thirsted after truth. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victimâ€.
Gustave Le Bon - "The Crowd"
Karl Rove is not Harry Houdini. He canâ€™t change the fact that the Democrats could take up to 40 seats in the House and that the Republicans may lose the Senate as well. He canâ€™t change the national polling-data which favors the Democrats by a considerable margin, or the exit polling which is predicted to show substantial Democratic gains too. And, thereâ€™s nothing Rove can do to stop the perception that the elections are now expected to be a Democratic landslide extending from sea to shining sea. The only thing that Rove can do to win the midterms is to purge the voting rolls in key states and crank up the voting machines to â€œfull-tiltâ€.
But even that wonâ€™t be enough this time.
