Which is to say, they have the Republican candidate in NY-09′s special election (Bob Turner) being comfortable enough to say stuff like this – about himself:
“Suddenly,” Mr. Turner said of voters, “they are faced with the most brilliant, dynamic, charismatic, Scott Brownesque candidate,” referring to the Massachusetts senator. Or, he added, people are so angry with the president “that they can put up some tired old guy with no political experience and he could actually win.”
“You can pick your poison,” he said. “I suspect that behind it is a great deal of discontent in the district.”
I imagine so, myself. It’s still a tough district to win for the GOP… but oddly enough, Democratic voters in NY-09 apparently may not be pleased with a political party whose members have been known to forward pictures of their genitalia to young women. Much like Republican voters in NY-26 apparently were not pleased with a political party whose members have been known to advertise (shirtless, no less) for adultery on Craigslist. But when you put it that way then people find it harder to find a deeper meaning in any random Congressional election.
