Nobody knows what will transpire between now and November and how much intensity each party's voters will have, but as of now, Democrats have a pronounced intensity advantage and enough of one to probably outweigh the GOP organizational edge.

The charge that the administration is all thumbs is gaining steam and it's not coming from just die-hard Democrats. I think of it as the nondenominational argument, one that stretches across the political spectrum. Its resonance explains the polls showing independents and even some Republicans losing heart. Debates about whether we should be in Iraq have given way to doubts about whether we can recover from our blunders. As the body count mounts, and as the tales and pictures of horror multiply, the doubts grow.

While Bush now concedes those doubts and has begun to confront them more directly, Cheney adds to them every time he opens his pie hole. On Sunday, asked on CBS about his claim three years ago that "we will be greeted as liberators" and one last year that the insurgency was in its "last throes," he insisted both claims were accurate and blamed the media for distorting the facts. Echoes of Vietnam there - right down to spreading B.S. and blaming the messenger for the odor. He should just put a sock in it.
