Green shoots?

No, not about the economy. That's still in the crapper. I mean about the 2010 midterms:

The fundraising disparity between the two committees is striking: The DCCC outraised the NRCC this year by more than $18 million, according to FEC figures at the end of November. The NRCC has only $4.3 million left in its campaign account — with more than $2 million in debt — leaving it with just a pittance to fund the dozens of races it hopes to aggressively contest.

I guess those tea-partiers don't want to put their money where their mouth is. Or maybe the NRCC just isn't conservative enough for them (scary thought). Maybe the Dems are in a slightly better position than previously thought? Only losing a bunch of seats instead of a crapload?

“At the end of the day, we don’t need as much money as the Democrats to win the majority,” said McCarthy. “They have to defend going in a direction America doesn’t want to go. … They need more money because they have to defend something the American people don’t want."

Ah, never mind, the GOP needs no money.
