Leftist Coward Watch - Day 14

Comments Since Day 1:

You had your chance, and you blew it. You trolled chatrooms and was a complete and total lying prick. You were challenged to a face-to-face, and you backed down repeatedly because you're so goddamned fat. You're a gutless, spineless, lily-livered, scared-to-death craven little coward. Don't like it? Then you should've backed up your empty words.

The last day of the weekend begins the way it's begun for the previous 13 days: the Leftist leech cowering behind his "blog" incapable of even posting a meager insult or "response" to my blogs,

Awww... missing me? I'm touched.

and certainly without the ability to...(GASP!) post original material!

Not on THIS particular site. That's not its goal!

This morning, I want to focus on someone other than President Obama, although he's connected to this story. Instead, let's talk about Arlen Specter, the on-again-off-again Democrat Senator running for his party's nomination to return to the U. S. Senate. With Specter's help, Democrats regained a 60 seat majority (if you throw in two Independents who caucus with the Democrats). Yeah, but that hasn't worked out so well. Since Specter's defection, the Democrats' "60" seat majority has been ineffective for the most part, either due to a lack of leadership or a lack of action on legislation.

Yeah, they never got that health care reform through or anything. Dammit!

Now that Specter's up for reelection, he's taking heat from the right...and now the left. Specter's having to run for his seat against a more Leftist Democrat challenger, Pennsylvania Representative Joe Sestak. Seems the Left isn't convinced that Specter's a "good Democrat," which echoes what they were saying after Specter went Democrat last year. The Left never completely trusted him. After all, he was a Republican for a long time. Ah, but when the time came, the Left has pulled the same thing they did with Joe Lieberman: picked someone to run against the sitting Senator who "wasn't Democrat enough" for their tastes. In Lieberman's case, the Leftist won the Democrat nomination, but lost the election after Lieberman ran as an Independent. In short, the Leftists won a short term victory only to lose the bigger victory by driving out a reliable Democrat for reasons that defy logic. Then again, Leftists never were good a logic or political strategy.

That's how we lost the presidential election, of course. Not to mention that terrible bailout strategy which didn't work. Or did it?

The funny thing is that the Left chuckles at the TEA Party movement for splitting the Republican vote (even though it could be argued that the TEA Parties are a lot closer to what Republicans used to stand for than the current crop in the GOP).

Absolutely, with their love of the Constitution and all. Not. Real Conservatives like Buckley would've thrown up seeing those Teabagger guys, and you know it.

Yet, they don't see the danger in their own actions. If the TEA Parties threaten to rip apart the GOP, why wouldn't the Left's own litmus test do the same for them?

"I'm an Independent(tm). Both sides are bad... so vote Republican!"

I doubt we'll ever get a straight answer from them

How about the fact that some things are MORE IMPORTANT than elections? First you complain that the Republicans aren't radically right-wing enough (which is nonsense, but we'll go with that), then you complain that the Democrats aren't propping up candidates that are DINOs. Which is it?

These guys are the GOP top contenders because your party can't nominate a high-profile member, as he would be absolutely slaughtered in 2012. But hey, maybe Specter could switch back to the GOP and run for President! It's particularly bad, because the main problem is that none of the well known Republican entities would be able to rustle up broad support from both the insane radical-right base (Teabaggers) and the general establishment. They're all split to hell. But it's the Democrats with the problem. Right. That's why Republicans are switching sides.

(or in the case of the Leftist leech, any answer).

Wow, you REALLY missed me. Stockholm Syndrome?
