HDR 194: Spinning the New York Win
ALOHA, ALL!! The media are all abuzz today with the Republican win in NY9. But some are trying to downplay it…calling it a local issue and insisting that it’s not a harbinger of things to come for Barack Obama in 2012. Really? That’s OK – keep your heads buried in the sand. But the most ridiculous spin came from my new favorite nitwit, Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Ridiculous NY-09 spin: “It’s a very difficult district for Democrats” « Hot Air Are you kidding me?????? A Republican has not held that seat since 1923. This is the district that spawned Gerladien Ferraro, Chuckie Schumer and of course, Anthony Weiner. Debbie, I’m so glad you’re Chair of the DNC – your outrageous and extremist thinking assure a GOP sweep in 2012.

This Guy Must Be a Racist. BACON: Good intentions bring terrible results – Washington Times “The do-gooders have all the best of intentions, of course. They just don’t pay attention to results. In the name of compassion, they keep blacks hooked on initiative-sapping welfare dependency. In the name of building the American dream, they promote homeownership for people who lack the financial wherewithal to keep up payments. In the name of equal opportunity, they dispense college loans to people who will never graduate. Lord, deliver us from those who would save us.” (Thanks to hubby for the link.)
