2010 Midterms:
No big deal

If one turns off the idiot box one sees it was not such a bad night for the Donkeys. The Tea Party in the House will make the GOPhers look like assholes for two years, and will hurt Palin 2012.

2009 and 2010 were clearly going to be nuclear winter after the Bush-Cheney bomb. It seems the Donkeys have survived it, with the ability to continue to govern.

If only the president had the vision and will of Michael Moore, speaking here late night of election night to Amy Goodman and friends.

Obama’s attitude upon ascension 22 months ago — scolding the people of the Congress as “children” (which he repeated later in 2009) — bespeaks a kind of Beautiful Soul naivete that has no place in DC. Getting his nose broken by Boehner a few times may learn him some Lefty values and in any case will make him a better president.

It occurs to me that Obama has probably never been in a fight.

And gee, men in splendid uniform and pin-striped suits have always treated him so well …

It’s time indeed he gets kicked in the balls.

Jeb Bush will be very hard to beat in 2012 if the GOPhers have the wisdom to nominate him.

Ralph Nader talks a lot of sense election day. He seems certain that Bloomberg will run as an Independent.

If Palin were to somehow get the GOP nod, Bloomberg would run Independent to the wire, my own crystal ball says, and thus help return Obama to office. Much like 1992 with Ross Perot in the mix. But would he bow out if Jeb came out of the convention the nominee?

    Jerry Brown’s victory over wannabe plutotechnocrat Meg Whitman — who spent circa $160 million of her own mad money — is cheering.

    He hasn’t lost any energy across the decades. Can’t keep a good man down, it would seem. Not that I thought his Flat Tax idea in 1992 was worth salt …

    Interesting review of how the pollsters performed.

    Rasmussen seems the big miscreant — consistently overstating GOPhers. A big client is Fox News.
