Self-castration is the insane response of the insane Democrat Party, with murderous primaries including one in Arkansas designed to bring down Sen. Blanche Lincoln and almost certainly hand the seat over to a Republican.
"Given the obsessive coverage of the Republican "civil war," you may not realize Democrats are also feuding. Angry and disappointed that their president and Congress has not done more, the party's liberal base is throwing itself into the primaries, pushing the party to the left even as the country moves right," says Kim Strassel of the WSJ.
The vicious thugs at Service Employees International Union and other socialist/communists have ponied up $3 million to defeat Lincoln in the primary with a neo-Stalinist named Halter. Ditto for a leftoid ditzmama named Colleen Hanabusa in Hawaii and Joe Sestak in PA, whom Obama tried to bribe with the Secretary of the Navy job, technically a felony, to stay out of the race against serial hack-rat [Specter was a Dem until 43 years ago when he switched to Repub, before re-ratting last year to the Dem side again, as Mark Shields helpfully pointed out in the PBS session with RINO David Brooks last night]. Ancient fossil Specter may squeak through, but Hanabusa has a snowball's chance in hell to get elected and the only beneficiary of her Communist agenda is a Republican named Charles Dijou, an almost certain winner today in Obama's home electoral CD.
Although Sestak would be worse news than Toomey, he would remove an unctuous elderly version of Upchuck Shumer from the Senate race, and that in itself would be a moral cleansing. All in all, the above machinations demonstrate again that the only people stupider than the individual Demonrat candidates themselves is the collective stupidity of the Demo-rat Party.
While the Joe Kleins and the Contessa Brewers of the deranged Mess-NBC wing of the media exult over Charlie Crist's defection from the Republicans, and Bennett's defenestration at the Utah Republican convention, the GOP can rest happy that Obama is sinking in the polls and the Dems will have a hard time keeping the House and even have an inside-straight chance to take over the Senate, should the cards fall just right and the Democrats continue their ruinous campaign for Crap and Trade and their opposition to an AZ law that 73% of Americans believe is just fine and 62% believe should be strengthened.
Meanwhile insane asylums like Chicago, Los Angeles, and Boulder CO want to "punish" Arizona by depriving them of their commerce! Why doesn't LA offer to accept AZ's unwanted illegal aliens and pay for Arizona's ethnic cleansing of these scofflaws to remove them to Hollyweird and environs?
That would be a fitting migration of moral lepers to a certifiable leper colony!
UPDATE Michael Barone weighs in at the Wall Street Journal this morning. He notes that Repub incumbents are hit from the right and Dem incumbents from the left. Polarization continues apace and accelerates.
How many overdogs are in trouble? Probably more than those who currently think so. Democratic Sens. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas are facing serious opposition from incumbents in their primaries next Tuesday. So is John McCain, who has until August 24 to sway Arizona Republicans. Stay tuned.
