Washington Times editor Wesley Pruden is calling feverish Democrats’ overtures about winning the House of Representatives in the 2018 mid-term elections “a mouthful of cotton candy.”
In an editorial, Pruden points out that liberal writers can only say “there may be a tidal wave,” with the word “may” being operative.
Other than empty predictions, he writes, the pundits are offering no evidence.
Tidal-wave elections are rare, and Democrats have been losing House and Senate seats in recent days.
“Prospecting for fools’ gold is fun in Washington, where politics is on the menu at every meal,” he writes.
Any catastrophe that would hand Congress to the Democrats next November, says Pruden, would have to be “a big ‘un” and not simply a media fabrication such as the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.
