I am so tired of quarter assed pundits being treated like geniuses for any baloney they spew out!

Last edited Sun Nov 9, 2014, 04:36 PM - Edit history (1)

Today, at Political Wire, there was a link to a story that pronounced that the Democratic "bench" was greatly thinned by the outcome of the 2014 elections. Yeh, right!

Don't get me wrong. I know that there is a need for some significant overhauling after the ass kicking that we took (and that the media worked HARD for), but the bench being thinned? Please. We have to learn how to get our voters to the polls for midterms the way that the teabaggers do!

To accept that the bench has been thinned, we'd have to accept a premise that nobody ever wins an election after losing one. We ALL know that this is pure grade A BS.

Does anyone seriously think that we've heard the last of Michelle Nunn? Or Alison Grimes? Or Wendy Davis? Up here in Maine we have some great candidates who lost last Tuesday whom I expect to have very bright futures in elective office, especially Shenna Bellows. Shenna lost to Susan Collins in a very one sided way, but she did run a campaign that is totally consistent with Democratic ideals and values. She reminds me of a young Elizabeth Warren and my wife and I would follow her lead ANYWHERE. We have that much faith in her.

I won't link to the BS, but the piece that I'm referring to is at the Political Wire website. It seems that all you have to do in the early 21st century is to stick your head up, say "I'm a pundit", and then you can have any piece of horse hockey (thank you, Col. Potter of " Mash" you spew taken as wisdom at face value. Well I'm not the docile Democrat that the Republicans/teabaggers, little Chickie Todd or the rest of the media wants. When I see nonsense like this, I'm going to be calling BULLSHIT!!!

Just my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!

PEACE!
