    I've got to hand it to the dems. Strategically they are making a wise move toward pulling out the rug from their incumbent candidates, cuz they know they are virtually guaranteed to lose in most cases. Running new candidates might help them save a few seats here, or there. For example in MA, a dem might win that seat, whereas Delahunt would absolutely not. It's smart. It's also exemplary of the win at all costs attitude political party's have, but it still is a good strategy.

    That isn't the Dems in all the cases though...His bowing out was more about a major screw up from the past coming to haunt him costing him politically than them getting out to save the seat. Without what happened in Alabama he would have won a tough fight but he would have won.

    I think he was polling in the low 30's prior to the incident. I could be wrong, but I heard he was in serious trouble, way back when Scott Brown won.

    Right, a huge amount of support for Brown came directly from Delahunt's district...but the nail wasn't until the Alabama shootings and his direct involvement in her Braintree case.

    Gotta wonder if Delahunt and Patrick Kennedy were, "counseled out" by the DNC.. both seem vulnerable and both could during this campaign could have been had by the Republicans due to their shenanigans & Faux Pas..

    The best possible way to win, is to replace them with fresh faces...

    Have to wonder if the right will get "Tookie" Amirault out of the closet, or was he just a prop for Scottie????..

    I could never understand how anybody could fawn, gush and slobber over a dirty politician, some people treat politicians as though were some special type of celebrity or Christ like figure, politicians are lying filthy pigs, all of them, watch them grin when they are feeding you their bullsh!t, I feel sorry for their children and their dogs.

    Always hold your nose when you vote then vote for who you personally feel is the best of this sorry ungodly son of a b!tching scum laden lot.

    Politicians are the lowest form of life on this earth.

    Re: Palin Turkey SLAUGHTER!!!!!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I fell off my chair, my wife fell down the stairs when she heard me laughing at 6:30 in the morning, she thought I was having a heart attack, I love Sarah she drives the Loons insane, that guy holding the turkey should get a raise and a free turkey.

    It's like having a massage listening to Sarah after having listened to that shreaking, hand clapping, griinnig witch in the yellow Pant Suit.

    That video should be played on the 6 o'clock news every night for a month. :singing:

    There is only one reason that I like Palin, when bully's go after someone for no reason at all just because they fear them or don't like them or because they happen to be on the other side then that is when I start sticking up for the "bully's victim".

    If that women should ever run for president there is only one thing that would make me vote for her and that is if Barack Hussein Obama was her opponent.

    Also, I would much rather listen to Sarah than the screeching head bobbing bug eyed Pant Suit Hillary......:rocker:

    I love what she does to MSNBC, if WWIII started tomorrow Mush Mouth Matthews wouldn't report it he would still be "bashing sarah"

    Someday she will probably fade away but she's raising a little hell and driving the loons nuts before she goes.
