So Dennis Hastert’s a complete scumbag, and a bad liar to boot. Wow, color me shocked.
Should he resign his leadership post tomorrow, it’s still not enough. He needs to resign from Congress. Immediately.
And then Rahm Emanuel, Richie The Boy King and everybody else who calledJohn Laesch’s congressional campaignquixotic needs to wake the fuck up and smell the burning corpse of the GOP. Because, honestly. This why, as Scout said to me earlier today, we need this 50-state strategy. Eh, we didn’t think we could win so much up in Hastert’s district, so we’ll let a good guy, a vet, hang out up there with no help. Until Hastert fucked up all on his own you couldn’t pay the national committee to give a shit.
Boy, wouldn’t it be incredibly useful to have a candidate up there now who had zillions of dollars to burn, huh? Wouldn’t it be something if Daley and Sens. Durbin and Man-On-God Obama had been making a big noisy fuss all along about this guy? Wouldn’t that have been nice?
You can’t take advantage of a GOP cock-up of monumental proportions if you wrote the district off for dead months ago. This is why we have to fight every fight whether we can win it or not, and don’t talk to me about money. When have Democrats, actual rank-and-file voters like what you need to get elected, ever failed to inspire with their generosity and spirit?
I know nobody could have predicted this, but that’s exactly the point. We’ve got to be everywhere. Because seriously, you think this is gonna be the last time they screw up?
