Regarding Evan Bayh's retirement announcement, the Washington Post reports: "Republicans aren't buying it, saying he and fellow Democrats sense that voters will be after their heads this fall."
"Politicians ratings will continue to fall aligning with a continued decline in mass social mood. Incumbents beware."

When I made the above statement back on the first of the year, I had no idea that the long term incumbents would start retiring. I assumed that their confidence and ego would drive them toward shocking defeat. This recent trend of "self inflicted loss" sends an even stronger message. The mob is really angry, and they don't want any part of it.
"When the tide is rising, we're happy participants, but when it lowers we seek someone other than ourselves to blame."
