Hallowe’en or Political Campaign?

I actually think “I am not a witch” has to be one of the best opening lines of a political ad ever. But she got it slightly wrong. I don’t think she is a witch, I think she is a nutcase.

    I’m not a woman. I’m not a teabagger. And I’m certainly not stupid enough to answer “Which recent supreme court ruling do you most disagree with?” with “I’m not sure off the top of my head, can you give me one” at a debate.

    I can understand a lot of people being angry enough to want changes in washington. What I can’t understand are those same people not being smart enough to realize they would make things worse by voting for intellectually inferior people like christine. Isn’t there anyone angry AND smart or are the only people angry not that smart?

    HEre’s eugene robinson echoing my thoughts.

    “Okay, I want to make sure I understand. Two years ago, with the nation facing a host of complex and difficult problems, voters put a bunch of thoughtful, well-educated people in charge of the government. Now many of those same voters, unhappy and impatient, have decided that things will get better if some crazy, ignorant people are running the show? Seriously?”

    Jonah, i agree on the new crop of candidates, but seriously we only seem to hear about 3-4 of the 21 TP candidates. The 3-4 are definately in your category of unqualified and wierd. I do not think people like Whitman are TP candidates, although they may have tried to adopt her, she doesn’t particularly like Palin and is way smarter. She, in my humble opinin, is a much better candidate then Brown so if I was a Dem in Calif I’d have to vote for her. Brown had his 2 term shot, and didn’t impress too many voters back then, which is evident when he then ran for senate and lost.
    Then there’s Marco Rubio in FL. bright young guy, fresh ideas and I’d trust him more then Crist.
    What about the Dems pick of Alvin Green in SC. they voted him in and he hardly even said a word to campaign on prior to winning the nomination. Do the Dems have a Tea Party of their own?
    So yes, I agree there are a few weirdo’s out there, but what about the other 15-20. Look, somebody voted wierd Al F. in didn’t they, the committee hearing doodler?

    pgt, i must have missed the part where the dems stood behind alvin green. from what i’ve read they’ve done their best to get him off the ballot. Has the tea party tried to get the above mentioned candidates off their ballot?

    As for rubio i agree that he seems to be a sane camdidate with decent ideas. if the tea party did their best to replace, angle, donnel, paladino and the rest of the other kooky candidates off the ballot then i think more people would be supportive of them.

    Good point on the TP wing nuts. Your correct about the image of the TP improving if they got rid of the kooks. Thats the problem though in that they are not well nationally organized at this time, but a collection of local groups. Both dems and repubs need to be aware/concerned in future elections if the TP’s unite and get a central/national coalition that is organized and focused. I think both parties are lucky at this point that they are not well formed.

    At first with Alvin, I think the dems thought the repubs planted him or something similar. Did they ever determine where/how he got the 10k filing fee?
