And more hilarious laughter. Kay Hagan is flipping out after losing a 17 point lead against the generic Republican in next year’s elections. I don’t usually put too much stock in polls against a generic Republican or a generic Democrat because there is a certain amount of the personality contest going on. But seeing that much of a swing against the same generic Republican means that something is going on.
This has been going around a lot, but it’s just too good not to post here (from the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank):
Hagan hosted a conference call for reporters Tuesday morning to discuss the problems with the health-care law’s rollout, and the Q&A session was so painful that the senator should qualify for trauma coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
So, I am enjoying the Priceless Schadenfreude. With the only caveat being that I can’t help but wonder how much stronger the GOP’s position would be had John McCain and Lindsey Graham managed to keep their mouths shut and obey Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment. Shutting the government down to stop this train wreck doesn’t seem like such a bad move now, huh? Wouldn’t it be nice to hang THAT albatross around Obama’s neck too? But those two idiots had to run out and apologize for the crazy tea partiers every chance they got. At the very least, it’s time for Graham and McCain to face some serious party discipline for their malfeasance in this regard.
And in the blog business category, I have added a Kay Hagan category where I can keep track of little anecdotes about the villainess who is unworthy to sit in the same seat once held by Jesse Helms.
