Republican Loser Update

Joe Lieberman’s fate will be determined today in Connecticut. If Ned Lamont wins, there will be some serious rethinking of the Democratic strategy. If Holy Joe can manage to pull it out, the activists in the Party will just have to redouble our efforts. Joe’s situational integrity is not helping the Party or this country.

Rick “man on dog” Santorum is in trouble too. According to the latest poll, Santorum is trailing Bob Casey by 6 percentage points. A statistical tie yes, but not a good sign for an incumbent, no matter how the GOP tries to spin it. How nice would it be not to have to hear from Sanctimonious Rick anymore? I hope the people of Pennsylvania send his Bible thumping, bestiality obsessed, regressive ass back to the nice suburbs from which he came. Now that is what I call a public service.

Bob “I’d sell my mother for some Abramoff money” Ney has finally dropped his bid for re-election. The only thing that has kept him in the race this long has been his amazing aptitude for denial. Even with his friends’ hands on the voting levers of Ohio, a Ney win would have been impossible to explain. The only way to beat Republicans in the midterms is to crush them. Close isn’t going to do it.

This is the trend all across the country, but the question remains, will this dissatisfaction with Republican leadership hold if the administration decides to start World War III? The October surprise will surely involve terrorists, fear, war and instability. I just hope the Democrats have a surprise of their own lined up (Some honesty about the very dire outlook regarding energy availability and our unstable economy would be good. It won’t happen of course, but it’s what the people of this country need to hear).

The really big challenge is convincing moderate Democrats that winnability is not about blandness. It is clear now that Republican victories were fixed by dirty tricks, slush funds, and biased media. If the Dems ran Jeb Bush for Prez in 2008, the MSM would label him a godless liberal wimp.

Look at what the Third Way has done to Britain's Labour Party. It's been destroyed. Even the Conservatives can joke that Tony is to the right of Maggie Thatcher. And Tony appears to be running Britain for the benefit of Rupert Murdoch and not the people.

But Britain is the canary in the neo-con mine shaft. This year will mark a record number of personal bankruptcies in the UK. The rise in gasoline prices, interest rates, and personal debt has proved too great for the average Brit. I'm afraid America will follow.

Possibly but not necessarily. It's entirely possible he could lose the primary and win in November as an independent. That's especially so if Ned Lamont, a rookie, stumbles.

I suppose there's also the possibility that if Karl Rove decides the political damage from keeping Rumsfeld in his post outweighs the potential damage from retiring Rumsfeld and having him off somewhere writing his memoirs and giving interviews, Lieberman might get tapped for defense secretary.
