The news from Wisconsin…Ed Schultz, Jane Hamsher, Cenk Uygur and Michael Moore CAN’T WIN ELECTIONS.
OK, the news from the recall elections in Wisconsin last night is frankly, horrible for the Petulant Left. They brought all their heavy hitters to Wisconsin to try to get the vote out. Ed Schultz was there and so was Cenk Ugyur and Jane Hamsher. Even Michael Moore showed up to lend a hand. What happened? The GOP managed to hold on to three seats, the Democrats got two seats, and one seat’s being contested, although the AP called it for the Republican (UPDATE:The Wisconsin Democratic Party has dropped contesting the 8th District election, so the Republican won). So. Two out of four. Of course they’re spinning the results as a “major victory” for the Wisconsin Democrats but we all know the truth. The Petulant Left got it’s collective ass kicked in Wisconsin last night, and for that we should be exceedingly happy.The Wisconsin Democrats DID get two more seats in the Wisconsin legislature that they didn’t have before,so that’s kinda good for the Democrats. And, as the President didn’t waste his time-or the national Democratic Party’s money, time and energy-on recalling six Republicans who will lose their seats in 2012 anyway, the President actually comes away from this with an enhanced reputation, since he’s the one who’s NEVER LOST AN ELECTION unlike the Loony Lefties who have lost SEVERAL.
The Democratic Party relied on those people from 1980 to 1991, and all they did was further Reagan’s kill the middle class policy by getting their asses kicked election after election, both state and national. Why did that happen? Because the PL never grew up. They never became emotional adults. They relied on tactics that didn’t work-even in the anti-Vietnam War protests of the late 1960′s. I’ve been saying for a long time that the Far Left never got beyond the anti-War Movement. And it’s becoming more and more obvious that is the case. We don’t need that in the Democratic Party, especially now. One of the few things Bill Clinton did right was to kick the Petulant Left out of the Democratic Party. Why? BECAUSE THE PETULANT LEFT CAN’T WIN ELECTIONS. They scare too many moderates and Independents off with their frothing at the mouth, angry rhetoric, always talking about how America is this horrible place they’re stuck in. I mean, honestly-would you vote for that? I wouldn’t. It’s not so much the candidates as it is the people BEHIND them saying this nonsense. And it discredits the candidates every single time. That’s why the PL can’t win elections and they need to be kept far, far away from Democrats, just like the far Right needs to be kept far, far away from Republican candidates.
Let’s look at the facts. Was ANYBODY calm and rational on either side during the Wisconsin recall campaign? Everything I saw was “crush the Republicans” or “crush the Tea Party”. There were no calm, rational adults saying “Hey, we need to calm down here and bring down the overheated rhetoric a bit. These people are our friends and neighbors-we need to work with them, not against them.”. It was all rant, rant, rant. Hate, hate, hate. And now? The PL will be ranting even more thanks to their fuckup in Wisconsin. So, last night in Wisconsin was a huge victory for the President-believe it or not. The results show that President Obama’s bipartisan (READ: ADULT) approach works, and the PL’s late ’60′s “burn ‘em out” tactics do not. The PL was shown for the unelectable, immature fools they really are, rather than the “revolutionaries” they like to think of themselves as. Hopefully, the Unions learned their lesson and will now go back to the center-Left coalition that brought them to the table in the first place.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Cenk, Michael Moore and Hamsher threaten to burn Wisconsin down now that the Republican in the contested election was the winner. Frankly, anger and violence is all they’ve got, now since last night’s results showed that votes from moderates and Independent voters mean more than frothing at the mouth tirades about how America needs to follow THEIR lead. Notice how much Huff Poach is talking up the London riots? In my humble opinion, that’s what they want to see happen in Wisconsin, now that this recall crap has failed. Hopefully, cooler heads in Wisconsin will prevail, but they are going to have to get rid of these grifters in their midst. The best thing for the President to do is stay far away from these people, and that’s exactly what he’s doing. Thing is, a wounded animal is the most dangerous one-and make no mistake about it-the Petulant Left is not just wounded-they’ve taken a electoral beating so bad it would land a human being in the ICU. So, they’re very dangerous right now, and the President, I’m sure, knows that.
So, let’s hope things turn out for the best, and that Wisconsin isn’t London. I’m sure it’s not, and cooler heads there will prevail, but I’m really concerned about this mainly because Moore, Hamsher, Schultz and Uygur have to be smarting from the asskicking they and their immature little PL buddies got last night. And you know what? They deserved it. I’m not happy when the Republicans win because their policies hurt real human beings rather than “political ideology”, but just the fact that the PL got it in the shorts last night is not necessarily a bad thing. Is it good for Wisconsin Democrats or the people in Wisconsin in general? Of course not.Like I said, extremist Randian Republican ideology is horrible for the average working folks who are affected by it. But-is it good for the Democratic Party as a whole? Absolutely. The more people like Ed Schultz, Jane Hamsher, Michael Moore, Adam Green and Cenk Ugyur are shown for the frauds they actually ARE and how irrelevant to the average voter they REALLY are, the better for actual, mature, moderate and liberal ADULTS who are Democrats-and especially the President himself.
