This may be the penultimate DOOMList from Cook with regard to the House: it's the Friday before the election and there's just not much time left for tracking the ongoing Democratic party's synchronized mass career implosion. Which is not to say that more extinction events won't occur, but there's a limit to how fast Cook can write them down.

I mildly regret to say that the latest readjustments included three that favored the Democratic party - two of which were to the benefit of Democratic incumbents. It is regrettable to see any Democrat slip from our fingers, of course... but looking at the list above, I think that we'll all bear up under the crushing disappointment, somehow. Particularly if Barney Frank continues to spiral inward...
