In the words of some late night host, this weiner story is like a gift that keeps on giving. It just gets better and better.
If you watched his press conference (the one where Breitbart was the opening act) he said he couldn’t say with “certitude” if any of the females he tweeted with were all adults. He had to take those people at their words, he said.
Delaware police have questioned a young (17 year old) lady regarding any online contacts she might have had with the great and honorable congressman.
I’m at the point where I don’t think anything the Dems do will make any difference or if anything they do makes a difference, it won’t be to their benefit. No matter what they do, they’ve lost in this midterm election.
There are a few exceptions and Jerry Brown is one of them. Brown may win because the people who vote in California seem to be pretty nutty and out-vote those few who aren’t. It won’t hurt him very much that he or someone in the room with him called Meg Whitman a whore. In fact, NOW and some other womens organization will be coming out with a big pro-Brown press conference tomorrow in California. There just are more nutcases in California than there are sane, thinking Americans.
Proof positive that Californian nuts outpace the normal ones is the surge for Brown since an illegal alien (Nikki the maid) has been put into legal jeopardy by an unethical attorney (Gloria Allred) in order to cripple Whitman.
On the other hand, the race in New Jersey has turned a corner with the revelation that the Democrat candidate for re-election, John Adler’s own campaign members put up a bogus Tea party candidate to siphon votes from the Republican, Jon Runyan. The NJ TEA party associations have all disavowed this bogus fellow (Peter DeStefano) as one of their own. And Adlers own campaign volunteers have acknowledged that this little dirty trick did in fact occur.
New Jersey is not the only state where Democrats slimy tactics have come into question. There are still allegations that Harry Reid’s campaign put up a phony candidate (Scott Ashjian) under the guise of the TEA party. All Nevada TEA party associations have disavowed this guy as one of their members. As in New Jersey, no Nevadans had ever heard of this guy before this election cycle.
Does anyone really believe that something Christine O’Donnell did as a teenager will really have an impact on how she would represent Delaware today? Virtually no votes will be changed because she had a date with some guy who took her to what I’m sure really was a kegger hideaway for teens. Every town has one of those. We called it Number 9, where I grew up. It was in a little valley by a creek, a few miles out of town. . . but I digress.
Some of these Democrats are shooting themselves in the foot with little help from their challenger, but at great advantage to that challenger:
Great ad, Mrs. McMahon.
Most people have made up their minds by now. A quick look at the low number of undecided voters in nearly all races is evidence of that. And with early voting open or soon to be open in most states, there isn’t much time to do a lot more damage.
In an odd, left handed way, and I don’t mean to insult leftys by calling them odd, maybe Rove has done O’Donnell a favor. Maybe he meant to do that, maybe he didn’t.
By bringing all her negatives to the front of the campaign, she has time to address them and dull the effects from the liberals when they start throwing arrows at her. Personally, I think that’s a good idea and a great strategy to win. Christine can step up and beat back all the attacks before they can do her a great deal of damage closer to the election day.
Of course, this is all theory on my part and maybe Rove was just telling his opinion and his truth as he knows it. But regardless, he’s done her a favor.
Chris Coons is Harry’s pet and the blogosphere is abuzz with this new little gem out of Harry’s mouth. But Harry’s been Obamas lapdog since day 1 of this American nightmare called the Obama administration, so he should know best about being someone’s beloved pet.
‘Well This Is Odd’ writes Mary Katharine Ham at The Weekly Standard. “Is there any way he could have complimented his friend and sounded more off-putting and out of touch with the electorate? …In my head, Harry Reid is Dr. Evil, creepily patting the head of Mr. Bigglesworth, the next senator from the great state of Delaware.”
This is ‘Sheer Dr. Evil Goofiness’ chuckles Allahpundit at the blog Hot Air. Does Reid, “not understand that his endorsement doesn’t help, even in a blue state? His national favorable rating is 26/56; I can’t find numbers for Delaware, but if The One’s approval rating is now underwater there, surely the vastly less likable Reid is deep into negative territory. Why would any semi-coherent Democrat want to nationalize this race in a year when the Democrats’ national brand is pure poison for their candidates?”
‘Creepy Harry Reid Hands O’Donnell Her First General Election Ad’concludes Michelle Malkin on her blog. “And go ahead, Democrats. Keep gloating about how you’ve got Delaware in the bag.”
