A lot of progressives are angry and are ready to kick the Democrats to the curb once and for all. In many ways, this group is being misunderstood by those who still want to support the Dems.

Americans to some degree and particularly those on the Right are now beset by a true conundrum. Is Barack Obama a Christian or a Muslim? According to the latest Pew Research polling: “nearly one-in-five Americans (18%) now say Obama is a Muslim, up from 11% in March 2009. Only about one-third of adults (34%) say Obama is a Christian, down sharply from 48% in 2009. Fully 43% say they do not know what Obama’s religion is.” Well, it’s no wonder people are so confused, especially when two of the most prominent talking heads on the far right differ as to what is the actual religion of the President. If Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh aren’t on the same page on this, how can we expect the lowliest schlep to know what’s real and as opposed to contrived?

Something’s different about 2010. Try as I might, I’m having a hard time getting excited about the fall campaign. It’s not that the Democrats are now on the defensive, or that the Republicans have succumbed to the Tea Party lunacy, or even that all of the Congressional gains of 2006 and 2008 might be undone. What’s gotten me so indifferent is the growing realization that these miderms don’t really matter. And in retrospect, neither did 2006 nor 2008.

Pay close attention to the Florida Senate race this fall, and especially to conservative Republican Marco Rubio. The tricky path that would lead Rubio to victory in November is the same path the Republicans might take in the 2012 presidential race.

The “mosque” controversy isn’t about property rights or religious freedom. It’s a bogus issue seized by the GOP establishment to distract the rank-and-file from the party’s reluctance to shrink government.

If President Obama is too weak to preserve our civilian-military order, then Congress is obligated to enforce its constitutional authority over the power of war.

It can be easy to become immersed in Beltway politics, in which names like Tim Pawlenty, John Ensign, and Harry Reid are instantly recognizable – or debates over the Stupak Amendment can rage on for hours.
One wonders how much of this filters down to the average voter. Does he or she really know what the public option constitutes? How important, really, are the 2010 congressional elections to the normal citizen?
Several days ago, some political comments made by a non-politically-obsessed friend provided me some insight into how “normal” people think.
