Mississippi Tsunami

(Travis Childers) Mississippi held a special election, and Democrat Travis Childers defeated Republican Greg Davis on solid GOP turf. Most analysts considered the race a leading indicator of events coming in November. Much to a certain blogger's delight:

"No one could have imagined the tsunami that just crashed on Republicans in Mississippi," Rep. Chris Van Hollen (Md.), chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said in an interview after the victory. "There is no district that is safe for Republican candidates."

The 2008 election will show this country its arse, as West Virginia did yesterday, a bunch of old, uneducated boneheads voted for Hillary Clinton admittedly with racist motivations. McCain is going to lose, but not after some howling and foaming at the mouth that Obama and the Democrats stand for dissolving the military, dismantling our weapons, and surrendering our first born to Al Queda. You think I exaggerate? Wait three months. Allegations attempting to cast doubt on Obama’s patriotism will blend with the fanned flames of racism to place a microphone before the mouths of the most Neanderthal elements of the country.

Regarding Congress, in both chambers the GOP has far more incumbents tossing in the towel, and the DCCC is substantially outperforming the NRCC in fundraising. The GOP and its corporate whores have thrown the country into a tailspin on almost every issue from a disastrous war to unconscionable international arrogance to unprecedented deficit spending for corrupt companies and war profiteers. The White House has implemented dysfunctional incompetence at all levels of federal government and so politicized the Department of Justice that it has become an attack dog for a criminal named Karl Rove who laughs at the country while he commits blatant contempt of Congress. All national infrastructures without exception including transportation (all of it), education (all of it) and workforce skills, finance, health care, military resources, on and on, have deteriorated to conditions worse (in many cases, far worse) than they were when Eggplant took office.

May Mississippi indeed be a taste of upcoming events. The GOP forwarded and supported the most disastrous presidency in the history of the country. November is the time for them to reap the suffering they have inflicted on 99% of the nation, and worse, the debt and suffering they have made inevitable for millions of Americans who have not yet been born.

I figured you were about due for an anti-Eggplant rant featuring Rove and/or Cheney.

West Virginia must have made you cranky and sent you over the edge.

Cheer up, x4mr.

John Edwards is endorsing Obama.

You only have to listen to Hillary for another couple weeks.

The Edwards endorsement is huge.

You may indeed get the "blue tsunami" you desire.

ACK...you DIDNT

You totally dissed my home state of West Virginia in a massive massive way. Maybe deserved on this one, but we Mountaineers don't like anyone kicking us around...but well...US!

Don't worry, Roger, and recall bloggers require thick skin.

The voters deserve a blogger slap, as far as I'm concerned, and believe me, I held back. Now, of course, it's moot, except that (as I posted at most recent story) Obama needs to spend time there and mend some fences. He can take the state from McCain with sufficient investment.
