Fairy Dust and Ponies

FromTena:

Hello, this is the Schadenfreude Fairy. I’m here to shower all you lovely moonbats with your maximum allowance of schadenfreude.

So, without further ado, I bring you the lede in this morning’s Dallas Morning News (I’m afraid they have changed the website lede for the nonce, so you’ll have to trust me that this is what your Schadenfreude Fairy found when she stumbled out to the porch and shook the paper out of its plastic sleeve):

Democratic trend forecast: Analysts say party could dominate Dallas County politics for ‘years to come.’

Yes, little moonbats, the Schadenfreude Fairy loves you. She wants you to revel in the knowledge that in one fell swoop Dallas County, Texas, went Democratic again on Tuesday, November 7, 2006. Recommence pouring champagne on your heads or down your throats, whatever turns you on.

oops – put 2005 there first. The Schadenfreude Fairy hasn’t exactly been sober since Tuesday night.

  1. Congratulations, Tena! What a wonderful feeling that must be! Can you send some of that Amarillo-way? I’d love to be able to talk politics with my kind-as-can-be uncle.

  2. The Houston Chronicle piles on as well ( http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/metropolitan/4321931.html ):
    Head and subhead from both dead tree and online versions today: Warning for GOP in Harris County . Election results show Dems could preval here as soon as 2008
    Money quote: “In an election when many ethnic minority voters [Houston is minority majority] didn’t vote, Republican judicial candiates on the bottom half of the … ballot won by an average of fewer than four percentage points – 52 percent to 48 percent.”

  3. Just curious … do all the people who were relocated to Texas after Katrina vote in the Texas races now? Wouldn’t that been poetic justice?

  4. A clarification for those who aren’t familiar with Houston voting patterns.
    Down ballot races such as judges are l;argely markers of straight party voting – many people don’t have a clue who the judges are (there’s 63 or them + several appelate judges) and just skip them.

  5. Go Tena! Go Tena! Go Tena! Go Tena!

  6. This is good news, Tena. My only disappointment is that you didn’t put up a picture of the Schadenfreude Fairy instead of a pony.

  7. hmm, what would a shadenfreude fairy look like??? brad pit? a victoria’s secret bra model? fabio?

  8. Hopefully, We can continue the awakening here in the Dallas Ft.Worth area. We still have a lot of strange political views expressed in the surrounding suburbs via the conservative talk show media. I do truly miss the local Air America outlet One law that I hope to see return is the Fairness Doctrine you know, that equal time thing.. Civil dialog and the unfettered exchange of ideas and viewpoints is what we need. All of us have been affected by the single sided approach (propaganda) broadcast with out challenge by and through the media consolidation that has gripped our country since the industry was deregulated in the 1980’s. The return of the Fairness Doctrine would bring back dialog and allow diversity of opinions on the people’s broadcast airways. Just a thought… p.s. bush is not and never was a Texan, he’s just a rich tourist.

  9. Here, here. So many are saying that this was a vote for ‘centrism’ and I disagree. I think it was a vote for inclusion and that ‘includes’ liberals. YEA!
