I guess you’ve got to hang your hope on something. When your best argument is “sure, all the poll numbers suck, we’ve got weak candidates and a LOT of seats to hold”, I guess you go with the party affiliation gap. Unfortunately for James Carville, the “it’s settled science, people” nonsense doesn’t fly.
Mother Jones wrote up a piece with the 8 best lines from her dissent in Burwell. Here they are with the obvious refutation that Ginsburg chose to ignore in favor of her liberal ideology.

So yesterday the Senate failed to pass Elizabeth Warren’s attempt to negotiate student loan debt down on the backs of a tax increase on millionaires. Democrats are chiding Republicans for voting the bill down, but it’s not clear to me why they would do that.
The Tea Party today is furiously trying to spin Eric Cantor’s loss as a function of their deft organizing in the face of David vs. Goliath odds.
