Edited on Mon Aug-21-06 05:21 PM by blm
Don't you remember how we all jumped on Lott and got a MORE PARTISAN Bush-hack majority leader in his place?

Just wrap them up in their remarks and move on - don't kill the beast - - - not - - yet. ;)

We jumped on Corsi, too, when we should have let him become the face of the swifts a while longer instead of chasing him completely out of the picture within a week. The swifts retreated and regrouped without Corsi, their weakest link.

Editted to add - this does NOT mean keeping him in the senate - we need to damage him enough for that and move on without killing him off completely. The giant egotist wants to run for pres - and so do we.

2. And there is the entertainment value
of never knowing what goofy remark will be next from them.

5. Getting rid of allen means probably gaining a Dem majority.
I think that's better than thrashing him in 08.

9. My aim is for both. Allen is a thug and will beat on McCain.

13. Nah - GOPs don't think like that. A BIG loss might, but a loss wouldn't.
It would be a sign to an egotist that he was MEANT to run for president and that he is now FREED up to pursue that goal fulltime.

7. I'd rather have the senate seat with Webb than that racist ass
back for 6 more years.

8. Oh - I don't mean let him win his senate seat back - just don't kill him
off completely now - the egotist wants to run in 2008.

11. If Allen loses his Senate seat
he'll be effectively dead in the water for 2008.

I never thought Bush would have a chance in hell of becoming president. So I am less inclined to believe the same about Allen.
Anything can happen.

17. I'd love to see him as the Repub candidate
in a debate vs Feingold, he'd end up a teeming load of blubbering mincemeat.
