  2. Michelle Bachmann (R) is the dumbest cunt in the House of Representatives. She alone counters any Castro admirers. There are some misguided individuals in the democratic party but they don't run anything. Pelosi sure does not admire castro, neither does Hoyer nor Reid nor Obama
  3. Saying things like that won't help any democrats. I hope the sound bytes keep coming. This just gets better everyday!

    Election 2010 Out of Control for Democrats: Expert

    Elected Democrats, suffering from plummeting approval ratings in polls and rowdy town hall meetings over healthcare in recent weeks, may endure double-digit House seat losses in 2010. Republicans may not win the 40 slots needed to give them a majority, but they could come close.

    Charlie Cook, a top political analyst, wrote to clients recently that “the situation this summer has slipped completely out of control for President Obama and Congressional Democrats,” The Politico reports.

    "Many veteran Congressional election watchers, including Democratic ones, report an eerie sense of déjà vu,” Cook writes. He says consensus is building that Democrats may lose more than 20 seats.

    Nate Silver, a Democratic analyst whose forecasts have proven prescient, said at a convention earlier this month that Republicans will capture between 20 and 50 seats next year, Politico reports. He also put Republican chances of recapturing control of the House at 25 to 33 percent.

    “A lot of Democratic freshmen and sophomores will be running in a much tougher environment than in 2006 and 2008 and some will adapt to it, but a lot of others will inevitably freak out and end up losing,” Silver told Politico.

    “Complacency is another factor: We have volunteers who worked really hard in 2006 and in 2008 for Obama but it’s less compelling (for them) to preserve the majority.”

    As for history, over the last five decades, the party out of power has picked up seats in 10 of the 12 mid-term elections.

    Survey data indicate that trend will continue. According to a recent Gallup Poll, cited by Fox News, a whopping 70 percent of independents now disapprove of how the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing its job.

    Sen. Reid to Nev. Newspaper: I Hope You Go Out of Business

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has infuriated the publisher of Nevada's largest-circulation newspaper with a "boorish" and "asinine" remark about the paper's future.

    Sherman Frederick, publisher of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, wrote in a column on Sunday that the comment came before a Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Wednesday.

    As Bob Brown, the newspaper's advertising director, shook hands with the Nevada Democrat, Reid told him: "I hope you go out of business," according to Frederick.

    The Review-Journal has run frequent editorials attacking the Senator, including one on Aug. 6 that suggested he was handing out pork-barrel presents as he prepared for a re-election bid in 2010, The New York Times reported.

    Reid may also have been disturbed by a recent Review-Journal poll that showed he faces a tough fight to win another term.

    Frederick wrote: "You could call Reid's remark ugly and be right. It certainly was boorish. Asinine? That goes without saying.

    "But to fully capture the magnitude of Reid's remark (and to stop him from doing the same thing to others) it must be called what it was — a full-on threat perpetrated by a bully who has forgotten that he was elected to office to protect Nevadans, not sound like he's shaking them down.

    "No citizen should expect this kind of behavior from a U.S. senator."

    The Review-Journal poll released on Aug. 23 showed Reid trailing possible Republican rival Danny Tarkanian by 11 percentage points. Tarkanian, a real estate professional and former basketball player at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, got 49 percent of the vote to Reid's 38 percent.

    Reid also trailed Nevada Republican Chairman Sue Lowden, who received 45 percent of the votes to Reid's 40 percent.
