Reid-Angle debate according to Me and Maureen. Dana Perino takes on Dowd.

It’s amazing how 2 people can view the same event and come away with entirely different perspectives and different views on the outcome. I watched the Angle-Reid debate, just as Maureen Dowd (NYT famed columnist) did, although she was actually present and I was watching on CSPAN. By all accounts, including the very left leaning Las Vegas Sun, Angle won. And won big. (The Las Vegas Sun is the Air America of Las Vegas. It couldn’t remain in business because no one read it, hence no one purchased advertising on its pages. The only way it’s remained in Las Vegas is by a joint operating agreement with the Review-Journal, which means it’s measly few pages are inserted into the R-J.)

If you listened to Rush on Friday, he hit all the debate highlights of note, and for Reid there were many. The guy really sounded and looked like he was just no longer up to the job of Senator and especially not Majority Leader of the Senate. He was disjointed and out of focus. He had to keep falling back on the old democrat talking points, sharing nothing new and stating outright lies. He said it wasn’t until after he made his famous “this war is lost” comment that the surge took place. Not true. He told us that he became rich because  “as everyone knows, I was a successful lawyer” and he has “lived on a fixed income” since going to Washington. Both not true, unless you consider that because he votes for his own pay raises, that it’s a fixed income. From sometime before he graduated law school until today, minus 2 years, he was never in private practice. In fact, he’s never worked in the private sector as an adult.  He’s been on the government dole his entire adult life. I think the most distinctly leftist and for me, jaw dropping comment came when Reid said that insurance companies are not in business for altruistic reasons but because they want to make a profit. Stunningly socialist.

Angle was sharp and did not appear at all rehearsed. She stayed focused and on the attack. It put Reid back on his heels because I don’t believe that he expected this from Sharron. Dowd says that Sharron was simply mean. That she is a dupe of Karl Rove and other right-wing operatives whose target is Reid.  I have news for Dowd: Reid is the target of every conservative in America right now. She inferred that Angle wasn’t smart enough to know how to respond to these questions on her own and was in need of coaching from the heavy hitters.

But before she went after Sharron, Dowd was petty, catty and small minded with every well known Republican woman, from Christine O’Donnell to Sarah Palin. The jealousy of these left-wing hags has no limits, they attack in the cattiest of ways any conservative woman in the public eye and they condescend to those of us who are the unknown but loud mass. And after reading her response to dour Dowds column in todays NYT, I’m proud to be part of the Dana Perino crowd:

Usually I’d ignore [Maureen]. But most conservative women running for office don’t have time to stop and be petty. I can do that for them.

As I’ve said about Maureen: It must be hard to be that angry all the time. That’s why I stay cheerful — just to irritate her. Two can play at that game, sister.

    Term limits !!
    We the People are in the process of taking this country back to the founding principles that our forefathers set up in the Constitution of the United States of America.
    This process may take several election cycles, however, it has been my experience that if you keep your nose to the wheel you will be justified in your endeavors.

    Our greatest enemy is the ignorance of the people that vote.
    Obama and the MSM prey on the ignorant people that don’t take the time or the effort to weigh the other side of the opinion.

    There are always three sides to every story,….
    1 side, the other side, and the truth.

      While I agree with you 99% of the time, on term limits we will have to agree to disagree. We already have term limits and it’s called elections. But you know, in the scheme of what we are enduring under Obama and the democrats, this is not worth really disagreeing about.

      We agree on the most important issues. And yes sir, it will take more than one election or 2 to make things right again.

    And I also have time to be petty. So I say this is a good riposte to a piece that has very little redeeming value.
