#rsrh My own take on the Bev Perdue Let’s-cancel-the-elections! thing

Background here: Governor Bev Perdue (D, NC) was talking specifically about cancelling 2012’s Congressional elections, but you get the feeling that cancelling, say, some gubernatorial ones would be a mitzvah in her eyes.  Anyway, my take?  Well, if I were a governor polling this badly for the last year and not really expecting things to change anytime soon then I might be inclined to endorse putting off as many elections as I could.


No, wait, I wouldn’t, at that.  I’m a Republican.  We don’t do that sort of [expletive deleted].

    I wonder how much the state has to pay the staffer that reminds her to breathe…?

    As a commenter, I can be a total VRWC nut and say: Obama is thinking about this very thing. There is NO WAY the narcissistic, arrogant, messiah-complex POTUS gives up power. He and his team are thinking of how to circumvent or cancel the 2012 election.

    I don’t see the Dems getting away with it, as much as they may be tempted….

    I was driving through Colorado mid-2008 and some radical lefty was on the radio saying Bush-Cheney had a secret plan to ignore the 2008 election. This was on the radio.

    On the larger issue of cancelling elections: I actually get what she’s driving at, but it’s simply the wrong answer.

    I understand Peter Orzag is on the bandwagon with her now, too?
