It's difficult to find much leftist/liberal/progressive/socialist response to last night's NY-9 Wiener-seat loss.
Did you know the seat was also held by Geraldine Ferraro and Chuck Schumer as well?
This district is so democrat that it hasn't gone republican since... the '20s.
Start your romp in cognitive dissonance lefty-land by reading Alan Colmes' cognitively dissonant justifications for last night's NY-9 loss.
Check out an obscure blogger -- Zandar -- in an honest, logical moment:
More than anything else, Dem voter apathy is the most powerful weapon the Republicans have. If you stay home in 2012, this will happen dozens of times over again a year from now, and the GOP will take total control of the country.Get out and vote, lefties, because the Tea Party Fascists are going to make Democrat illegal!
And they will do everything they can to make being a Democrat illegal. You can stop it. But only if you ACT.
Batman cowering in the libtard Batcave:
But voter dissatisfaction with the wrecked economy—a potentially fatal millstone that George W. Bush hung around Obama's neck—cannot be denied.
Blame. George. W. Bush.
Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), among the most senior House Democrats, sketched out those lines. “The Republicans want us to repeal the 20th century, the New Deal, the Fair Deal, to turn us back to the robber barons running the country, and to eviscerate the environmental and other regulations to protect public health and safety,” said Waxman. “And to cut spending in ways that would be very harmful to people who rely on government.”And to cut spending in ways that would be harmful to people who rely on the government.
Doesn't that sum it up?
You'd think Porky-Waxman's quote would take the cake.
Nope, the crowning-cognitavely-dissonant-(ditz) is none other than Obama's hand-picked-DNC-handmaiden-nitwit-motormouth-imbecile, Debbie Waserman Schultz:
In this district, there is a large number of people who went to the polls tonight who didn’t support the president to begin with and don’t support Democrats – and it’s nothing more than that.It's nothing more than that, in a district that is 3-1 Dem to Repub registration? It doesn't stop there, though.
More Wasserman hoots-and-hollers here (hint: she thinks the district has been difficult for Dems... for the last 80+ years).
