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.
From The Atlantic Wire:
- ‘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.”
