So, Which Blue Dog or Other DINOs Defeat Will You Cheer Most Loudly?
One of the big and bitterly enjoyable ironies of the looming midterm buttkicking the Democrats are about to receive is how many of them are corporatist sellouts who got their gigs by defeating more liberal (and often more general-electionable) rivals in the primary. Watching the millions poured into Blanche Lincoln’s primary challenge by party sachems who wouldn’t have hesitated to let her drop if she were a liberal just kinda makes me funny that way.
So, in the interests of schadenfreude, making the best of a bad situation, or perhaps both: Name the DINOs you won’t be sorry to see the backs of come January. (Yes, you can name Blanche again, all you want.)
