Peter Principle meet the Conservative Corollary

No wonder the Washington Post snatched Bill Kristol up, you cannot be so wrong so consistently and not catch the affections of Fred Hiatt.

Yesterday in the midst of a Howie Kurtz putz-kiss Kristol says:

Since Election Day, the GOP has been nowhere to be seen and Obama’s popularity has soared, but the Democrats’ edge over the Republicans in the generic congressional ballot of the Rasmussen poll hasn’t increased at all.

Yeah, Rasmussen…I prefer polls not endorsed by Larry Kudlow…and until Michelle Obama or Stokely Carmichael (same diff) tell me otherwise, I’ll look to more reliable sources – same day …

Forty-six percent of those questioned in a Diageo/Hotline survey released Wednesday say they would support the generic Democrat in the 2010 elections for the House of Representatives, with 22 percent backing the generic Republican candidate. That’s a 24 point lead for Democratic congressional candidates in the so called "generic ballot" question

This kind of insight does not grow on (or evolve down from) trees, Bill Kristol is going to demand a raise.

Kucinich gets it right, federalize federal money



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
