Earlier this week we saw the DCCC drop over a million dollars in last-minute ads on behalf of Gerry Connolly, an expenditure that generated some of the most bizarre attack ads seen anywhere in the country, and which could potentially do more harm to Connolly’s campaign than good. Now comes word from NLS via twitter that his sources are telling him that Keith Fimian is way ahead in internal polls, presumably conducted by the Democrats. This seems to correlate to what I’ve been seeing and hearing, but I’d been under the impression this race was still somewhat pretty close.
If Keith Fimian is outside the margin of error in internal polls, that would suggest that in Virginia Hurt, Rigell, Griffith and Fimian all win their races putting the 8th District Patrick Murray vs. Jim Moran race as the one to watch. Watching the hapless and despicable Jim Moran squirm in deep socialist country like Arlington is great entertainment, and hopefully that value will only be enhanced by seeing the anti-Semitic and anti-Veteran Moran get forcibly retired. Just having a shot of that happening warms a conservative’s heart to no end.
Wow, thank you Barack Obama for utterly poisoning the Democrat brand, allowing us to take out some trash we should have dispensed with long ago. We couldn’t have done it without you and your sycophants Reid and Pelosi who made it so clear to the electorate what you actually meant behind all those platitudes and glittering political generalities. They’re not going to take that kind of garbage at face value ever again.
So if the wave-cum-tsunami rolling across these House races crashes equally over the Senate, Republicans stand a respectable chance of seizing not only the House but the Senate, and entirely shutting down the Obama legislative agenda. With Obama stripped of his key allies and still bumbling and fumbling around the job of President, he becomes irrelevant while Democrats engage in an internecine battle to figure out which neo-socialist multi-kulti demagogue is going to be the next leader to try to pull the wool over the eyes of a public increasingly wary of hopey-changey baloney masking a disturbing socialist agenda. It’s pandemonium, at least for a while.
The prognosticators have clearly been caught off-guard this election, and haven’t bothered to pay any real attention to VA-11. Just tonight the Cook Political Report, which some folks think is just so insightful for some bizarre reason, has decided suddenly that VA-11 is a toss-up, which is what everyone on the ground here was saying weeks ago. The professional punditry is still obsessing over races like Hurt’s and Rigell’s that have already moved into near-certain double-digit thumpings, while ignoring how the battleground has shifted in the past two weeks to put challengers like Griffith and Fimian close to, and rather quickly over the top.
I get the feeling there are going to be a lot of pundits expressing surprise on Tuesday night when Fimain beats Connolly 54-46.
