We’ll See Who Laughs Last

With less than two weeks until the mid-term elections in America, the race is tightening in many places over the country between the Democratic and Republican candidates. Even in very left-wing liberal states, where the Democrats usually have an easy time winning the election, candidates are now still neck and neck.

Who would have believed that in liberal California and Massachusettes the Republican candidates have a chance to win?

There are many reasons for this, but one large one is the elitism and condescending attitude by the left-wing. They keep trying to accuse the right wing candidates of being stupid (conveniently ignoring some of Joe Biden’s bloopers). They have gone so far as to plan a rally with comedians known for their sharp put-downs of Tea Party candidates for the night before the elections.

Besides being incredibly arrogant, I can’t think of anything more self-destructive. Tell me, if someone made fun of your candidate, would that make you more or less likely to go out and vote the next day? The enthusiasm gap is already wide – in favor of the Republicans.

I think the Republicans are going to take control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives (besides the givens, I think the Senate races in California and Washington are going to go Republican too).

    The Democrats and the “left wing” don’t control the comedians at Comedy Central. The executives at Comedy Central decide what they do and when they do it.

    And the Republican Meg Whitman would be a disaster for California. For just one example, she’s running radio ads saying she wants to take money away from welfare, which would increase the poverty rate in the state.

    California is BONED no matter who the governor will be. I voted for the recall of Gumby Gray Davis and Arnold became governor and even he has failed as Governor. It will just fail faster if Moonbeam becomes Governor of California.

    There is a certain symmetry in the making. Team Blue, represented by the SF Giants, will take the World Series, and Team Red will take the elections. The question is not whether there will be a Republican Congress but whether there will be an Impeachment Congress.
