If Democrats needed any more proof that 2010 is going to be an awful year for them at the polls, they got it when a fire alarm went off at their annual Jefferson Jackson Dinner on Saturday. When I heard the news about fire alarm, I figured a bunch of union thugs must have been smoking. I guess it was just steam from a dishwasher. Still, not the way that I’d want to start my biggest fundraising event of the year.
Congressman Bruce Braley took the stage at the JJ Dinner to the Beastie Boys tune “No Sleep ‘Til Brooklyn.” I understand that Braley is from Brooklyn, but last I checked he doesn’t represent the town. Maybe Braley is acknowledging that he’s going to get beat this fall, besides that I have no clue why he would want to enter to that song. Other than he must be an idiot.
Congressman Dave Loebsack is all pissed off that his opponent, Marinnette Miller-Meeks, continues to pour her own money into her campaign. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised to hear a Democrat tell someone how to spend his or her own money. Any way, Dave went on to say something like, “Iowans do not want my opponent or any of those other folks who want to buy an election in Iowa.”
I guess “any of those other folks” probably means Roxanne Conlin, who has given her campaign $1 million thus far. Candidates like Lobesack are idiots for complaining about things that people in their own party are doing.
Boswell took the stage to Hulk Hogan’s theme song. Now part of me thinks that his makes a lot of sense. There have been a number of times when I thought the Hulkster was down for the count, but that adrenalin rush allowed him to come back. Boswell has done the same against Stan Thompson and Jeff Lamberti.
For some reason that I can’t explain, I think 2010 is going to be like WrestleMania VI, when the Ultimate Warrior beat Hulk Hogan to become WWF Champion. Zaun, like the Ultimate Warrior doesn’t always make sense and gets a little red in the face, but he’s full of so much energy you just can’t stop him. Boswell on the other hand is just the same old bumbling idiot he’s always been.
Seriously, if I were one of Roxanne’s grandkids, I’d be talking to an attorney right about now to try and keep my crazy grandma from spending all my inheritance on a statewide campaign against Chuck Grassley. Think of how many cats we could save with that $1 million dollars?
My bad. I forgot that she is probably just going to spend the $1.4 million that she received in stimulus dollars from Obama on her race so she really isn’t out anything. I guess this is what liberal mean when they talk about public financing of campaigns.
Tom Harkin told the crowd at the JJ dinner that Culver and the Democrats are going to win. Well, he actually said, ““Believe it, believe it, believe it — because it’s going to happen!”
Yeah, no it’s not. Saying stupid stuff like this makes you look like an idiot on November 3rd.
It’s cute that Patty had some fun at the JJ Dinner with photos of her looking for Kim Reynolds. The reason I find it humorous is that every week I get a list of events that Kim is going to be at, while Patty and the Chetty don’t hold many public events. Maybe if Patty would actually campaign she would bump into Kim.
I can’t wait till I don’t have to listen to Patty Judge yell at me anymore. Enjoy your retirement you crazy liberal.
Chet continues to brag about recent magazine articles that claim that Iowa is a well-run state. He told the crowd at the JJ Dinner, “Why would you want to fire the coach? Most coaches would get a lifetime extension,” Culver said. “…I don’t need that. I just need four more years.”
For the love of God dude, we just can’t withstand another four more years. I’d also like to talk to whoever wrote that article. Maybe they should do a little research on stuff like Glenwood, Atalissa, the film office, $10 million of misspent federal flood money, the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division, and the list could go on and on and on.
That’s not to mention your budgeting practices, Chet.
Like most Iowans, I’ve seen enough of what Democrat control provides this state. Let me know if you need help packing your things in advance of your move back east.
