OK, time to make lemonade out of lemons.
The tea-baggers got dunked on election night.
That 23rd District Congressional race in upstate New York that featured the Conservative Party candidate went to the Democrat.
Bill Owens defeated Doug Hoffman in a race that got special attention because Hoffman had the blessing of Sarah “Death Panels” Palin.
This was after Palin and her “Let’s go Rogue” Republicants shunned the GOP candidate because she was “too moderate” and took it upon themselves to rustle up the fiendish-looking Hoffman and run him as one of their own.
That was their first mistake.
By alienating the Republican candidate they in turn helped get the Democrat elected. GOP candidate Dierdre Scozzafava dropped out of the race over the weekend and threw her support to the Democrat. She still managed to garner about six percent of the vote, which may have gone to the loser Hoffman.
Had the political nitwits like Palin and her fellow tea-baggers kept out of this race, the Republican probably would’ve won.
By the way, guess who else was up there campaigning for the loser Hoffman? That’s right, Mr. Tea-Bagger himself, Fox Noose’s Minister of Propaganda, Glenn “Goebbels” Beck.
Nice going, cry-baby. While you’re at it, round up your Beckerwoods and send them out on another losing cause.
And kudos to you too, Fox Noose. Sending people from your network to campaign for a third party you’re trying to control. Fair and balanced? You bet’cha!
The loser Hoffman, who had no business running in the district in the first place (minor detail: he doesn’t live there!) actually made it public that Beck is his mentor.
Scary. Someone who worships Glenn Beck —- a true Beckerwood — could have been elected to Congress.
As if there aren’t enough space cadets in both Houses of Congress.
Speaking of space cadets, Palin came out smelling like a moose on this one. So much for your magic touch (she’s actually 0 and 2 if you count the McCain debacle, uh, campaign.)
Better stick to Twitter, Quitter.
Keep dabbling on Facebook, beauty queen.
More fancy pageant walkin’ and less talkin.’
This won’t phase Palin, because it doesn’t do anything to her personally. She’s still powerful enough to influence the many, many more tiny brains out there in her America, a.k.a, the Militia States.
Beck will come up with excuses for his failure to create even more bonehead leaders in his own image. The excuses are:
1. “There were other people running against him.”
2. “I should’ve cried… tried harder.”
3. “Obama’s health care terrorist plan terrorized people who were ready to vote for the Conservative Party candidate….Mommy!”
4. “MSNBC kidnapped Hoffman voters and held them captive in Keith Olbermann’s New York Yankees-themed Panic Room until the polls closed.”
5. “It’s better to lose an election than to see someone who doesn’t worship me win.”
President Obama didn’t come out of the night unscathed. Republicans won governors’ races in Virginia and New Jersey, the latter state in which Obama campaigned for incumbent Jon Corzine more than once.
The prez was left with a bit of egg on his face. But the yoke was on Beck and his Beckerwoods.
Like Cubs fans say every September: Wait until next year.
2010 is already shaping up to look like it’s going to be an interesting and hard fought election year.
Right now it doesn’t seem to be boding well for the Democrats.
Tuesday’s election loses for the Dems weren’t as much a referendum on Obama as much as his party in the House and the Senate.
The Dems could lose seats in the House and Senate. Since the Dems got control of all branches of government, the sentence can now read The Dems should lose House and Senate seats in 2010.
Although the governors’ races reflect what goes on in their particular states and not in D.C., it was apparent by the voter turnout that apathy — moreso anger at the way Washington is not handling the situation — spells trouble with a capital T for the party in power.
Obama, much like Ronald Reagan before him, will still maintain his popularity. He could well be the new Teflon President.
Still, he and his party need to get it done. Or else the Democrats will be forced to party like it was 1994.
Since it seems like it would take a miracle to get the Democrats to accomplish anything, next year they may need a miracle to keep themselves in charge.
After all, you can only count so much on Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin to bail you out.
