Hastert: All Sorts of Dead Weight

The congressional Republican boat is sinking fast, according to those leftists at Fox News. Republicans can either a) toss their fat speaker overboard, thus saving themselves or b) keep him aboard, and endanger the whole ship.
House Republican candidates will suffer massive losses if House Speaker Dennis Hastert remains speaker until Election Day, according to internal polling data from a prominent GOP pollster, FOX News has learned.

"The data suggests Americans have bailed on the speaker," a Republican source briefed on the polling data told FOX News. "And the difference could be between a 20-seat loss and 50-seat loss."
This raises the stakes for Republicans, sure, but also for Democracts. As George Will notes, if Democrats can't shoot the fish-in-a-barrel Republicans, their future is bleak.
