Rahm Emmanuel bitch slaps Connecticut Democrats
Rahm Emanuel, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, expressed confidence that Democratic turnout would be strong for the House races in Connecticut.
â€œExplain to me how two Democrats running is bad,â€ Mr. Emanuel said in an interview. â€œWould I prefer it be simpler? Yeah. But everybody is hyperventilating, and my own view is that we have an energized base.â€
Uh, Rahm, you wet fart of a Beltway Insider, this is the general election. Connecticut Democrats chose their candidate in the primary--not you, though I'm sure you would have liked it that that.
That candidate was Ned Lamont, not Joe Lieberman.
Saying anything else is a slap in the face to Connecticut Democrats, and the choice they made.
Joe Lieberman is not a Democrat because (a) he is not running on the Democratic ticket, (b) he is running against the candidate the Democrats chose in the primary, (c) he is giving aid and comfort to Republican candidates, (d) he uses Republican staffers, and (e) he mouths Republican talking points.
And don't get me started on The Kiss.
"Two Democrats"? WTF??
And by encouraging Republicans to come out and vote for him, he's also encouraging Republicans to come out and vote against other Democrats--possibly losing us the Senate and the House.
Stupid, stupid, stupid.
