The Who’s Mad At Us Today Report: Saturday Edition
Posted by hillbuzz
Martha Coakley’s campaign in Massachusetts is imploding.
We know this, because the big guns are getting called in on the national level to come to Massachusetts to save “the Kennedy Seat”. Here in Chicago, that means people we like very much, big money people, are putting the pressure — BIG PRESSURE — on the big Democrat families and donors here to pony up and bail out the Coakley campaign.
We’ve been told to shut our mouths and stop helping Scott Brown. This is now coming from people we actually really like, and not just the Democrats we generally ignore in this town.
This Senate race was a tough call for us because Martha Coakley was a strong Clinton supporter and remains friends with the Clintons, whom we would do just about anything for. We pledged to always support anyone who stood with Hillary Clinton against the DNC’s attacks in 2008, when Dr. Utopia’s campaign, under its “Hope and Change” banner, proved it was really more about Sexism and Misogyny than anything else.
We were, in fact, backing Coakley until Christmas week.
That’s when everything changed for us — because Democrats decided to ram dangerous, unconstitutional legislation through the Senate in the dead of night, racing to force votes on a bill no one read or fully comprehends. That’s treasonous in our opinion — these idiots are jeopardizing the safety and the well-being of the nation for NO GOOD REASON. Not a single Democrat in the Senate can articulate exactly what is in the Healthcare Rationing bill or what financial impact it’s going to have on the country. None of the 60 Democrats in the Senate can explain why this bill needed to be rushed to the point of incompetence…when there was plenty of time for the Whore of the Senate, Ben Nelson, and the shameless Mary Landrieu to pork the bill up with all sorts of personal bribes for themselves.
The very reason we supported Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid is because we trust the woman: she loves this country, believes in restrained fiscal management, carefully studies things before she commits to any long-term nation-changing legislation, and certainly learned her lesson in the 1990s in terms of how to go about healthcare reform. Hillary Clinton, if she was president today, would not be presiding over the disaster that’s befalling us in the Senate.
So, at the end of the day, in the week before Christmas, we decided our love of this country and our concern for America’s future trumped any other allegiances we have. There is nothing we have against Coakley, and we will always appreciate her courageous stand with Clinton when the DNC and Utopia campaign where pummeling her with all they had. That took a lot of guts on her part to stand up for what she believed in when she was under such immense pressure.
And so, it’s now our turn to do just that.
We heard again today that we’ll never work for another Democrat campaign if we keep pushing Scott Brown, which means there’s no future in the political world for any of us. It’s long been our dream to find a way to actually make a living in politics, so we can quit our day jobs (emphasis on plural on that one), and just revel in politics and analysis all day. That would be a dream come true.
And today’s threat is, either back off the Massachusetts race or that won’t ever happen, at least not in Chicago.
And we say BRING IT.
Life’s strange. We never thought we’d be running a website. We never imagined in our wildest dreams thousands of you a day would want to come here and hear our take on things.
We certainly never thought we’d be enough of a threat to anything to have people tell us to shut up, or to have Obots relentlessly attack us in the name of their Lightbringer, oh He of the Hope and the Change and the Unicorns (not to mention the rabid, crazed, cult of personality thronged with those whose first reaction to anything is to swear, hate, and threaten).
We’re all in for Scott Brown in Massachusetts, people.
One of our great heroes in 2008 was Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild — a former Democrat big donor and fundraiser who’s stopped working for the DNC and will most likely never raise money for Democrats again. She’s through with the current incarnation of the Democrat party, which we call the Liberal-Socialist Democrat party.
To paraphrase something Hillary Clinton herself said, back when she was a Goldwater Girl, “we didn’t leave the Democrat Party, the Democrat Party left us, and morphed into something we can’t even recognize anymore”.
We’re sad the Coakley-Brown election has burned more bridges for us. It hurts to have women emailing us hateful things for not backing a woman for Senate, when we work so hard to promote good female candidates for everything. We take the same flak whenever we go after terrible Senators, Governors, and Cabinet members, who just happen to be female, such as Claire McCaskill, Kathleen Sebelius, or Janet Napolitano. Just because you’re a woman doesn’t mean we HAVE to like and support you. If you’re terrible, you’re terrible. Just because someone is gay, it doesn’t mean we have to like them, just because we’re gay.
Life is not as black and white, cut and dry, as some of these people would like to pretend it is. It’s more complicated than that, and sometimes it does require sitting down and figuring out which loyalty trumps others.
As much as we love the Clintons, if we think what’s best for the country ever goes against something they want or believe in, we need to follow our hearts and do what’s right for America.
We’d choose country over what’s best for ourselves in a heartbeat, so Hillary and Bill Clinton need to understand that we have to choose America over them, too.
We were terrified by what the Democrats have done with the 60 votes they have in the Senate. They crossed a major line at Christmas…one we won’t forgive them for. America needs the Democrats to lose at least one vote in the Senate so that they cannot ram through legislation that’s going to ruin us all and cripple this nation. They proved they cannot be trusted with that much power.
So, no matter which Democrat would run in that Massachusetts race, we would be backing the Republican to balance those scales.
Fortuitously, the Republicans just so happen to be running Hottie McAwesome for Senate, a guy we actually like (and wish had a younger gay brother who lives in Chicago).
If helping him wipes out job and other opportunities for us in Democrat circles here in Chicago, so be it. Because at least we know there’ll be an America left if Scott Brown is elected.
We’re not so sure that’s true if Democrats get to keep their 60 vote majority through the November elections. Those reckless loons need to be put on a leash IMMEDIATELY, and Scott Brown is the only man at this juncture who can do it.
