House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) predicted Thursday that Republicans will pick up seats in the 2008 election despite a slew of GOP retirements and the Democrats’ significant fundraising advantage. "We don’t need as much money as [Democrats] have," he said. "We need enough to tell our story." He added, "I think we are going to gain seats this year. Period."

Confident Delusional Hilarious words for a man who just a few weeks ago was pleading with his fellow Goopers to get off their "dead asses" and raise money because the GOP’s fundraising "sucks."

Money, schmoney. Boehner’s right. There is that wonderful Republican story to be told of the housing crisis, the recession, two lost wars and generally what awesome shape the country’s in. Because when voters hear that story, they’ll swoon.

It’s just fabulous.
