Breakfast Scramble (Thursday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Alas there is no Joy in Behar, If Sharon Angle does as well in her match with Dirty Harry Reid as she doing with her cat fight with Joy Behar, she will win in landslide. Michelle [1] has the details on a most one sided cat fight:

After Joy Behar’s “bitch” session on The Spew [2] yesterday, Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle struck back…with flowers and a cheery note.

I don’t think the Alinsky playbook has a chapter on flowers.

Susan Estrich, I was shocked the other day to read a column by Estrich on which I agree.  She was chiming in on the Juan Williams NPR fiasco with the old Jesse Jackson quote.  Well, Estrich was right for once, but now she back to normal, from RCP [3]:

That is why Reid should win.

It may not be fair, and it’s certainly not her fault, but Reid can do a lot more for the people of Nevada at a time when they need all the help they can get.

He can do that because, if he’s re-elected, the president will owe him. He will still be his party’s leader, and he can bring home more to the state of Nevada than a goof-prone newcomer with a penchant for putting her foot in her mouth – who would be one of the most junior members of the Republican Party.

At the end of the day, Nevada may not want Reid, but they can hardly afford to get rid of him. And that might be enough this year.

It was Dirty Harry’s enabling of Barack Obama’s agenda which created the diaster in Nevada.  The last thing Nevada needs to Dirty Harry abetting Dumbo agenda to wreck Nevada, and the nation, for the next two years.

The wave cometh, Jeff Jacoby, Boston Globe [4]:

THE HILLS are alive with the sound of liberal Democratic contempt for the electorate. So are the valleys, the prairies, and the coasts. For months, voters have been signaling their discontent with the president, his party, and their priorities; in less than a week, they appear poised to deliver a stinging rebuke. Yet rather than address the voters’ concerns with seriousness and respect, too many Democrats and their allies on the left have chosen instead to slur those voters as stupid, extremist, or too scared to think straight.

Gridlock will never look so good.
