The political pundits of this fall have not forgotten last year’s biggest news event, it appears, as they’re comparing the upcoming mid-term elections to a political Katrina:
In the National Journal, Chuck Todd used athe metaphor to describe the Republican party:
The GOP’s hurricane shutters are state of the art, but sometimes even "state of the art" isn’t enough to stop a storm from creating all sorts of havoc.
A bipartisan poll conducted by Bill McInturff and Peter Hart found equally distressing news for Republicans, and phrased it the same way. Hart compared the upcoming elections to a Category 4 or 5 storm. He said:
"Simply put, the low lying areas are [going to be] under water."
