You know what I really hate about Republicans?

They make it so hard not to hate them:

My reporting on the Michigan Republican Party’s odious mailer encouraging people to call the phone of the ailing mother of Democratic candidate for Michigan’s 61st House district John Fisher has gotten LOTS of attention. It’s had thousands and thousands of views and the cross-posted version at Daily Kos has given it national exposure. It’s been picked up by other sites, as well, including Raw Story, Wonkette, and others.

Fisher’s opponent, Republican Kalamazoo County Commissioner Brandt Iden, issued a statement that stops very short of repudiating or condemning the mailer, saying, “Obviously, as you know, it was not sent out by our campaign. I don’t condone negative campaign tactics and it’s not something my campaign has done or anticipates doing. I hope Mr. Fisher would do the same.”

Why he would suggest that Mr. Fisher, a pastor, “would do the same” is perplexing. There’s been nothing like this coming from the Michigan Democratic Party or Fisher’s campaign.

  1. The Democrats will lose the following Senate races in November: Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, West Virginia, North Dakota and Montana. Bet on it. Control of the Senate will go to the Republicans. Knowing that result why would any Progressive vote for any incumbent this November? Yesterday Obama told us that the economy had improved over the past 6 years. Except for workers wages he said. In rebuttal the Republicans said that Obama “has thrown a wet blanket over the economy with his focus on spending, borrowing, taxing and regulating.” The Republicans admitted that the rich were getting richer and the 99% was headed backwards. But that was because corporations were being forced to pay workers higher wages. The Republican remedy to all of this was to “allow the economy to grow.” That way workers would get higher wages. You gotta hate the Republicans because they talk in circles and lie about everything. And we Progressives do hate them for that. But the Senate will be in the hands of the Republicans come January anyway because most Americans will vote the incumbents back into office.
