Ah, the Democrat strategy… (A) Find a Senate race featuring an unpopular incumbent you’re almost certain to lose, with a contested Republican primary, especially in a state with an inexpensive media market, (B) pick the least likely GOP candidate to defeat your incumbent, especially if he or she has a history of being a loose cannon and shooting his or her mouth off, (C) stick big time money behind them so that they win the nomination or (D) set up a situation for the new GOP nominee to say something abysmally stupid and then use your media lackeys to make a nationwide media firestorm out of it.
That’s how you take an almost certain Senate takeover by Republicans and turn it back into a 50-50 horse race at worst. Even better, you turn the national focus away from the economy and an incumbent Democrat president’s execrable performance in office and put it back where you want it – on abortion and the so-called ‘Republican war on women’ meme. Especially when you can rely on the stupidity, shortsightedness and grubby ambition of the nominee in question to stay in the race and keep the game going until the November elections.
Talk about committing rape!
Not good for the country in the least, but good for Democrats and admirable in its deviousness. Give the Alinskyite devil his due.
Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday.
I’m very proud to announce that Tom White over at VA Right! was named Blogger of the Month by the AFP news service… quite an honor, mais oui. Congrats, Tom!
You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.
