How Screwed is Bush? Wonders Andrew Sullivan

And how screwed is Sullivan's calendar, we wonder. Mine, and I suspect Karl Rove's, still says it's 2002. All the big dates circled in red on Karl's calendar are in 2004, with a big finish tabbed for November 2. So yes, it would be nice for Bush if the Republicans in Congress could hold up well this fall. But Bush's domestic agenda seems to have run out of steam and he might do fine as a counterpuncher, battling Congressional Democrats and "Fighting for the Right". This worked, in a mirror image way, for Wild Bill. So, how screwed are the Republicans? Good question. How screwed is Bush? Way, way too early to tell.
