a McCain district
John Boehner might want to revise that prediction
about the GOP picking up 100 House seats this November.
Here his party was, faced with a special election
for a House seat in the only district in America to flip from
John Kerry in 2004 to John McCain in 2008 --
and they came up short. Very short.
Democrat Mark Critz's winning margin over Republican
Tim Burns for John Murtha's seat stood near double-digits
-- a sum made all the more impressive by pre-election
predictions the spread would be razor-thin.
Yes, Republicans can and will claim that the result
was skewed by Oh, they'll always
have an excuse...
But the simple fact is that Pennsylvania's 12th
is exactly the kind of district that Republicans are supposed to be
winning in 2010. It is blue collar and culturally
conservative and its voters -- many of whom undoubtedly recall
Obama's infamous "guns and religion" line from
the spring of 2008 -- have never had much use for Obama, or for
"liberals" in Washington. (This is the kind of
resentment that Republicans were seeking to harness when they aired
an ad featuring a menacing, larger-than-life
Nancy Pelosi last week.)
So, the Whore AP says the dems had a dreadful
but at least we can get some honesty from Salon.com.
The whore press - when they fall out of love,
they attack - if it's a Democrat.
I don't remember them turning on Bush for Katrina
or his Iraq Disaster.
Oh, that's right - the whore press is owned by Republicans.
