#rsrh Doug Schoen: Democrats doomed.

(Via Hot Air Headlines) Well, not in so many words: but when you write something like this… well, that’s pretty much the equivalent of saying that all you need to make a perpetual motion machine is to repeal the laws of thermodynamics.

For the Democrats, there is hope—more hope than would have been expected before Tuesday. But that hope is based almost totally on running as far away from Washington and the established political leadership as possible, and embracing a socially and fiscally conservative agenda.

Which is to say, that’s true, but it’s not going to happen.  The people giving money to the Democrats right now don’t want their party embracing a socially and fiscally conservative agenda; they want liberals raising taxes and expanding government.  Which is why Joe Sestak is signed up to lose to Toomey in November; and why Halter is close to successfully replacing Lincoln as the candidate to lose to Boozeman; and why Democrats all across the land are wearing visible symbols of their opposition to a popular Arizonan law.  It’s ram-your-head-into-a-brick-wall time for the Left, and they’re all lining up to have a go.

Besides, shall we list every ‘conservative’ Democrat out there who betrayed his or her constituents when ordered to by Nancy Pelosi?  Trust me, it won’t be any trouble; we’ve been keeping careful track.  We’re also holding a pool to see when Critz is first forced to betray his district…

PS: One other note, Schoen: Critz won decisively, yes – but seven and a half points is not ten, and while the GOP was obviously discounting the 2-1 registration advantage in this election we won’t be in future ones.

    This is the blue dog strategy, run right, vote left. As Rush said last week, the candidate in PA was running to the right of him, Limbaugh. And it apparently worked.

    We should not be so flippant.

  • […] The Democrats’ greatest hope is  based on “running as far away from Washington and the established political leadership […]

    I’m surprised that the Dems haven’t shoved Doug Schoen in a locked closet yet – he keeps popping up to tell them things they don’t want to hear.

    As to why we lost PA-12 by 7% it’s simple – Indies didn’t show up to vote in a closed Primary. The Dems can’t count on that in November, which is why they may well be shocked on election night in November when they lose PA-12 after winning it just 6 months previous…

  • “We’re also holding a pool to see when Critz is first forced to betray his district…” Wasn’t that when he registered as a Democrat?
