Welcome To Loserville, Mr. Hoffman

 

I must say that I disagree with Google News in their choice of using the gubernatorial races as their headline last night. Which one do you think is the real headline?

House special election Conservative party candidate Doug Hoffman was defeated by a Democrat, Bill Owens, in a district that has not been represented by a Democrat since the Civil War. This resounding loss took place despite efforts by Republican party leaders Sarah Palin, Dick Armey, and Glenn Beck to oust Republican candidate Dede Scozzafava and insert Hoffman as their own personal dark horse contender in an attempt to purge moderates from the GOP.

Or:

Two Republicans, former state attorney general Bob McDonnell in and Former federal prosecutor Chris Christie won in elections for governor in Virginia and New Jersey. Since 1989, the party winning the White House has always gone on to lose the gubernatorial races in both states the following year.

It's hard for third parties to break through. I should know, I vote Libertarian more often than not. If the GOP had dumped Scuzzywuzzy from the gitgo and coalesced behind Hoffman, this wouldn't have happened. Thanks for nothing, Newt!

In Virginia and New Jersey, since 1989, the party winning the White House has always gone on to lose the gubernatorial races in both states the following year. So the GOP says this is a resurgence, eh? Yeah, right. Like a fart's a hurricane. And it's been since the 70's that the POTUS party stayed the same as the VA governors party in an off year election. But this is clearly not a historic trend, but proof of GOP validity today. LMAO

Doc, you take the breaking news of today and put it in historical perspective.

These weird super-intelligent ape of the future ways of yours are the reason why you could never find employment in a human-run news organization.

Um, the only Owens victory that has ever counted was Jesse's who was, by the way, a conservative going up against that liberal, fascist regime of Nazi Germany.

It's all so pitiful if you think about it for more than half a second. Buncha clowns, the lotta them.

According to a Rasmussen poll released on Monday, for the third straight month (we don't count gay months like May or February) the number of Americans who consider themselves to be Democrats increased while the number of self-loathing, er, identifying Republicans has dropped. The Rasmussen poll numbers gives GOP'ers at 30% - not the widely touted 20%. Oh and regardless of trends, Corzine was a wildly unpopular governor in a usually D state, and Virginia may vote D sometimes, but is still pretty southern and red.
