Election campaigns often bring out all kinds of doom and gloom prophecies dealing with the case of the victory of the other guy. The 2006 mid-term elections in the US were no exception. In fact, they were quite bad in that perspective.
One of republicans "warnings" was that the victory of the democrats would be a victory for Al Qaeda. And lo and behold, it seems they are not the only ones thinking that.
The next two years are going to be really interesting.
