Rand Paul tapped into 'anger' (and loves Kokesh the Fraud)
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Rand Paul, the first-time candidate for elective office who has emerged as a symbol of the national tea party’s clout in Republican politics, appears to have clinched the GOP’s nomination for this state’s open Senate seat – in a victory certain to jolt the political order in Kentucky and across the country. [...]
Upstart Senate candidates claimed two stunning victories in primary elections Tuesday night as Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak denied incumbent Democrat Arlen Specter renomination to a sixth term and Kentucky insurgent Rand Paul easily bested establishment favorite Trey Grayson for the Republican Party's Senate nod.
In the evening's third key Senate race, Arkansas Sen. Blanche Lincoln clung to a slim lead of a few thousand votes over Lt. Gov. Bill Halter with nearly 85 percent of the vote counted in the state's Democratic primary, but will face an expensive and potentially dangerous June 8 runoff since neither candidate will reach 50 percent of the vote. [...]
The democrats that voted are claiming the victory but Obama is not. Get that straight right now. He has his Goons from his Organize for America out for Specter. Remember?
[...] Across the country, ophthalmologist Rand Paul soundly defeated Secretary of State Trey Grayson to claim the Republican Senate nomination in Kentucky while state Attorney General Jack Conway claimed the Democratic nod. In Arkansas, Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D) and Lt. Gov. Bill Halter will face each other in a June 8 runoff after the incumbent failed to break 50 percent tonight. On the Republican side, Rep. John Boozman was running very close to the 50 percent mark, keeping the possibility alive that he would bypass a runoff despite a crowded GOP field. In Oregon, former Gov. John Kitzhaber (D) easily won his party's nomination to seek his old office while former NBA player Chris Dudley led the Republican field. [...]
Obama and primary candidates kept each other at arm's length - I wonder why that is....
If Tuesday night's elections were a referendum on President Obama, it was not because he sought to make it that way. [...]
You have got to be kidding me. What an opening line that is. Judas H Priest.
Arkansas voters deliver muddled verdict on insiders - please. Muddled? A run off is muddled?
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Arkansas voters delivered a muddled verdict on establishment politicians Tuesday, thrusting Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln into a prolonged fight to keep her job while handing a sitting congressman the GOP nomination for the seat.
Lincoln, already considered one of the most vulnerable incumbents in Washington, now begins a three-week extension of her battle with Lt. Gov. Bill Halter for the Democratic nomination. Halter, embraced by labor unions and groups on the left that soured on Lincoln, vowed to make the chance count. [...]
D vs D. Now that is muddled right there.
No, This Isn't an "Anti-Incumbent" Year - HA! And that is a Leftinistra's wet dream.
[...] It is a false equivalency being pushed because Arlen Specter is probably going to lose today. If that happens, Snarlin' Arlen will make the fourth high-profile pol that Barack Obama embraced in friendship who was later rebuked by the voters of a blue or purple state. Deeds, Corzine, Coakley, Specter. The White House doesn't want this "narrative" to get out - so they're pushing this alternative instead.
This isn't about dissatisfaction with the performance of the 44th President. Oh no. This is about demanding change in Washington - the very same change, by gum, that Barack Obama has been working so hard to bring about!
"Change that you can believe in" has gone from an over-worked campaign slogan to an unfalsifiable hypothesis. Vote for a Dem, you support the President's agenda for change. Vote for a GOPer, you support the President's agenda for change.
But how many Republican incumbents are in severe jeopardy of losing their seat in Congress to a Democratic challenger? [...]
Like I said in the title of this article...this is looking really bad for the marxist-sociopaths.
