AP's wishful thinking headline:

Democrat wins signal trouble for Bush

"Trouble for Bush"? Hey, I didn't think about that! I mean, if this bad luck keeps up, Bush may not get re-elected in 2008!

What? He can't run again? OK, then exactly what trouble is Bush in for? Sagging popularity will do...what? Declining approval numbers mean...what? Seriously, now that he's firmly in place in his second term, just what kind of "trouble" does a NJ and VA guv race signal?

Trouble for GOP? That's a legit topic for debate. But trouble for Bush? Dream on, MSM.
