Nancy Pelosi is finished as Speaker

There's no way that Nancy Pelosi will be the next Speaker of the House. How many incumbent Democrats have come out and said they would not vote for her? Just going through the ad campaigns from incumbent Democrats, here and here, this struck me as a done deal.
On ads, this one by VoteVets for Harry Reid is tremendous.
This one by Joe Miller is hilarious.
As for Jack Conway's ad, its a hail mary. Conway has not ran an especially smart campaign, hitting Paul on drug legalization and now some college prank. But that said, he's running as a Democrat in Kentucky against the headwind of Obama in the wrong year. The best you could say is that this add is the sort of thing that a campaign is going to do while on the ropes with the clock running out.
From the looks of it, Paul's initial pushback seemed pretty defensive in the debate (Conway seemed robotic), and yet this punch-back ad by Paul looks very effective, blunting and now putting Conway on the defensive. I'm left wondering if Conway even wants this fight, or is going to leave it be. Now, that latter choice would be rolling over and playing dead at this point.
damn I'm sick of the spam in the diaries. Yea yea, I have the developers working on the migration off this dreadful beta...
From everything I see, we are looking at 65 seats, give or take 10, that the Republicans take, so the title is a moot point.
