It looks like the mid-term elections are still too close to call, but Daily Kos today provided a clue to a trend that is clearly favorable to the Democrats.
The comments are posted below, and I've highlighted the relevant portions for your review:
Palin to the Rescue
Kansas Republicans are getting increasingly desperate and now they’re bringing in all the crazies.
The last few weeks have seen a parade of zombies marching in lockstep across Kansas. It’s a clear sign they’re losing and they know it.
In support of Kansas non-resident
and struggling US Senator Pat Roberts
, no less than Rafael “Ted” Cruz, Jed Bush, Bob Dole, Paul Ryan, Willard Mitt Romney, John McCain, Sarah Palin, Tom Coburn, and Rand Paul have answered the evil batcall and come rushing to the rescue. What surer sign of panic can there be than hysterical campaigning?
In previous election cycles, such campaigns stops weren’t considered necessary. Everyone “knew” Kansas would go red. Everyone “knew” Roberts’ seat was safe. Heck, Roberts didn’t even need to show up in the state; he could safely rest in his Virginia home. Things are so bad, Roberts had to schedule a WEEKEND Bus Tour across Kansas. Can you imagine? A whole weekend!
Then to add to the zombie-fest, they called in the heavyweights. Yes, Chris Christie and Rick Perry
showed up in support of Sam Brownback.
I wonder who is next. How low can they go? Well, here are my suggestions: Mark “Soul Mate” Sanford, Newt “Ick” Gingrich, Scott “Isis on the Border” Brown, David “Outsourcing” Perdue, Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin, Joni “Hog Castrator” Ernst, or the queen of crazies Michele “Obamacare Will Literally Kill Women” Bachmann.
See below the squiggle for an oops moment.
Feeble in body but still acerbic in wit, Bob Dole
said what he really thought about Cruz, who would soon be making an appearance in support of Roberts.
“The government was shut down, not by Pat … but by a guy named Sen. Cruz from Texas,” the 91-year-old former presidential nominee said. “There’s nothing wrong with compromise to get things done for Kansas and the rest of the nation.”
