    Okay, so this post really isn’t about the Crimson Tide, but there is a crimson tide out there this morning — the Democrat dead pool.

    Bill Ritter, the Governor of Colorado, is gone.

    Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND) is gone.

    Chris Dodd (D-CT) is gone.

    These three all announced on the same day and on the heels of all the other Democrats retiring and Parker Griffith switching to the GOP.

    Meanwhile Evan Bayh is looking more and more vulnerable in Indiana.

    Something is happening. Whatever it is is most definitely bad for Democrats and good for freedom.

    The crimson tide of Democrat destruction rolls on. Is it a coincidence that Alabama has an elephant as its mascot?

    And yes, this post is dedicated to Joe Scarborough, righteous fan of Alabama and now purveyor of eponymous premium Starbucks coffee.
  3. Don't be so sure this is a good thing. The strategy could be:

    1. Fall on the sword for Obamacare, knowing full well it makes you a dead man in the polls.

    2. Retire.

    3. Get new Democrat in the running for district who has enough time to build momentum against republican runner so that they aren't saddled with having voted for Obamacare.

    4. Pay off/Reward retiree who fell on sword.

    "Disposable Senators" might be the new "in-thing".
  4. EXACTAMUNDO!! Let's not forget that the payoffs and rewards to the "HC martyrs" are coming from taxper pockets... :mad:
  5. Imo, this is shift in who chairs committees. This is part of a larger plan and not unexpected. wtfdik, just speculating .

    Actually this may have began with the death of Kennedy. Basically a realignment within the party.
  6. Bingo! These people are now more dangerous than ever. They'll vote for anything knowing there is no personal consequence.
  7. Dodd is a crook, just like his father.

    Dodd’s Other Campaign: Restoring Dad’s Reputation

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 23 — On June 23, 1967, Senator Thomas J. Dodd, Democrat of Connecticut, was censured by the United States Senate for diverting $116,000 in campaign funds for his personal use.
  8. Watch that fat piece of shit and see what cush job he ends up in.
  9. Roll Tide!
  10. cstfx


    His prostate cancer is probably worse than he let on.

    His dropping out just increased Dems chances of keeping the seat. Take a look at intrade's action this morning when this was announced.

    This move stinks of WH interference/manipulation.
