With the midterms just five days away, it’s looking like a given that if the Democratic Party had to take the name of a TV show it would be “Breaking Bad.”
The news is even more dire for the Dems when polls show that key voting groups like women, Catholics and Independents, who broke for President Obama in 2008, are deserting in droves.
Obama is trying his best to lessen the blow that’s expected —- he even appeared Wednesday night on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart.
The reviews were mixed.
And that’s from his own base.
Obama got tripped up when he channeled George W. Bush by saying that Larry Summers, director of the National Economic Council, was doing “a heck of a job” (as in W. telling his head of FEMA that after Katrina “You’re doing a heck of a job, Brownie.”)
Liberals are looking for cover (don’t liberals always look for cover?) because of the predicted media-dubbed “political tsunami” that will wipe out Dems come Tuesday.
Some are even saying that Obama has lost his edge. Whatever that was.
Obama, edgy? The guy people made fun of for wearing “dad jeans” when he threw out the first pitch at a major league baseball game last year.
Obama, edgy? Republicans tried to get people to vote against him in 2008 because he like arugala.
Donny Osmond is more edgy than Obama.
Maybe Obama should’ve gone on Stewart’s show and pulled a Christine O’Donnell in his own political ad for TV:
“I’m not a socialist.
I wasn’t born in Kenya.
And I won’t pull the plug on granny, take away your guns, or try to control the banks and the auto makers.
I’m not the devil.
Except with a lot more power than any whackaloon tea bagger is going to have if they get elected.”
In any event, the RepubliTea Party is over-confident that things are going to go their way on Tuesday.
How over-confident? Well….
1. They’re letting W. be seen in public before the election.
2. The Republican National Committee — no strangers to spending donor money in strip bars —- are bragging about paying for Charlie Sheen’s motel room where he went berserko grande.
3. The RNC is proud to take credit for the Meg Whitman political ad where she says when her and her hubby moved to California 30 years ago “anything was possible.” Duh… 30 years ago Jerry Brown was governor.
4. This weekend the GOP is proving to Sarah Palin that they can “Man up!” by taking applications for militia type goons to stomp on the heads of any protesters (especially if they’re women) at any Rand Paul rallies.
5. To secure that young people who are still supporting Obama and are planning to vote for Democrats on Tuesday, the GOP is diverting their attention by giving each of them a free six pack of that new libation “wipeout in a can.”
