Drs. No

They have the right prescription:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 57% of likely U.S. voters have more confidence in the judgment of a member of Congress who voted against bailouts than in the judgment of one who voted for them. Just 21% trust the judgment of a Congress member who voted for bailouts more. Another 22% are undecided.

Seventy-nine percent (79%) of Republicans and 62% of voters not affiliated with either of the major political parties trust a member of Congress who voted against bailouts more. Democratic voters are narrowly divided on the question.

Seventy-four percent (74%) of voters correctly identify Republicans as the political party some have labeled the Party of No. Despite, or perhaps because of, this high level of awareness, Republicans have built a solid lead over Democrats on the Generic Congressional Ballot.

We know what we have to do. It just remains to be seen if we have the sense to do it (in 6 1/2 months).
