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.
