Our friends on the loony left have said and done a lot of silly things since Scott Walker’s victory last night. From Ed Schultz making the claim that Walker “could very well be indicted in the coming days” to some joker in Wisconsin claiming Walker’s victory signaled the end of the USA and the death of democracy (that Walker had just won via a free democratic election is beside the point, apparently) to some deranged liberal slapping Tom Barrett in the face for acknowledging the obvious: That he lost the election. There’s plenty more of course, but my favorite is this from one of Obama’s flacks:
“While tonight’s outcome was not what we had hoped for – no one can dispute the strong message sent to Governor Walker.
Er …what? Given that Scott Walker exceeded his 2010 vote total by more than 200,000 votes and increased his margin of victory over Tom Barrett, what’s the “strong message” voters sent Walker that “no one can dispute”? Can anyone help me out? I’m all ears.
The other odd development I’ve noticed today is that Democrats are suddenly pretending the recall election was just an unimportant local race which will have zero national implications. Kind of like a local race for township dog catcher that’s won by a write-in candidate because nobody bothered to sign up for the race. Carney, for example, made that case today. This is nonsense, of course, and Democrats can only hope Americans have developed a sudden and collective case of amnesia if they think we’ll buy this foolishness. But not to worry. In the unlikely event anyone’s having difficulty with their memory, American Future Fund has produced a helpful video. Enjoy:
Update: (h/t TT) These Hitler parody videos never get old.
