The campaigns upcoming will be sewers of primarily leftist vitriol, falsehood and exaggeration.
The left has shown that lies, false flag attacks, mischaracterization... the Obama campaign template... will be the order of the day.
Locally, the scumbag running the democratian publishes as if he's getting a check from the local democrats. That will amp up as the election approaches.
Fortunately, the rag's circulation shrinks as the population grows, and the horse they're trying to beat has long since turned into dust.
The impact of the rag is limited: their efforts were not what resulted in the fringe-left, pro-CRC Scammer victories in the last election: on the contrary, every single advisory vote went against the democratian agenda.
But presuming Slimeball Stuart actually runs... and whichever other pro-CRC whore might run in his place... the rag will portray them as the Second Coming of the Political Christ... but it will not matter.
No democrat running for any office will have a record of actively opposing the CRC Scam, and an informed voter public will, with a minimal and hopefully THIS time competent GOTV program, destroy Stuart or Stuart-lite that might be running in his place, should Slimeball bother to do a political reality check.
None of the Senators running in Clark County are up, if memory serves. Fringe-leftist money will attempt to buy elections for the left, rather hypocritically, given the rabid allegations aimed at Commissioner David Madore by local leftist scum... and that will happen around the state much like the abortive effort to drop $3 million on the Jan Angel race. How'd that work out for them?
Hopefully (and rumors abound) an actual Republican... or 2.... or even 3... who will do the job will announce against THE most worthless state representative I have ever seen, Brandon Vick, in the 18th. An articulate, knowledgeable candidate that's an actual Republican can take him out based on the fact that he's done absolutely nothing since he was elected... which, come to think of it, pretty much sums up what I forecasted about him before he was elected in the first place.
Expect democrat state representative Monica Stonier to lurch to the right and become as loud in her opposition to the CRC Scam as her keepers will allow her to go... which isn't going to be much.
Had Stonier went along with the Three Leftist Stooges in the Commissariat of the 49th District, I would give her no chance. Stonier, who was trashed in the 2010 election by the democratian but who, somehow, underwent a miraculous transformation in the intervening 2 years and who barely won against what amounted to a non-campaigner, was portrayed thus in the local rag in her 2010 effort at running:
"....sings pitch-perfect the talking point serenades of the Washington Education Association, the teachers’ union. Stonier shows no inclination to force public employees to incur the same pay and benefits sacrifices that private-sector workers have suffered. Her big campaign advantages over Hash are party connections and political clout. She — and not the eccentric attorney/accountant/computer nerd/rich guy — is the darling of local Democrats."Somehow, none of that applied last cycle. But then, situational ethics is the kind of thing the rag is known for.
If GOP candidate Lynda Wilson runs a smart, focused campaign based on fiscal issues and not the distraction of social issues, people will vote their shrinking wallets every time. But that all remains to be seen.
With the destruction of the democrat brand this past year and the ongoing idiocy they will confront in the upcoming year combined with a politically weak and impotent governor makes the outlook bleak everywhere but in the most communist of bastions.
I believe the GOP will extend their numerical majority/coalition in the Senate. (Which will be just the tiniest bit awkward for Senate Speaker Pro-Tem Democrat Sen. Tim Sheldon (who will have the seat as long as he lives if he wanted it) and Senate Majority Leader Democrat Sen. Rodney Tom (Who has a somewhat more tenuous relationship with his democrat constituency and who will, no doubt, be facing millions in fringe-left rage dollars if he attempts to run for re-election) one wonders: what happens to them if the GOP reaches a majority without them?
Sheldon will be back. Tom? Hard to say... but I wouldn't bet on it since they'll do everything they can short of shooting him to cause him to lose.
If, however, Tom survives what will obviously be a bloody, horrific primary, expect him to be re-elected.
But now might be a good time for the GOP Caucus to ponder the what-ifs of it all. If it were me, I'd keep them right where they are... even if the GOP Caucus has the numbers to replace them and still maintain the majority.
The House is in reach, perhaps. But it's going to take a level of intelligence and competence lacking for the past several years. Rep. Richard DeBolt's departure will be a net plus... but who knows what he's going to be replaced with.
When it comes to the local coup attempt (Charter effort) it's almost impossible to say what is going to happen.
Local leftist are fading in their efforts to keep the fringe-left nutters whipped up against David Madore and Tom Mielke: as the local economy improves and Madore's fiscal policies bear fruit, it will become increasingly difficult to get rid of him... or to expand the number of commissioners to 5, or to try and implement the hideous idiocy of making Greg Kimsey the token RINO as county executive. They need to remember: The more bends they stuff into the county charter effort, the easier it's going to be to stop up the drain.
Further, how much would it suck for them if they set up that idiotic county executive scam and David Madore became that?
Hatred that's being "smurfed" rarely results in the desired outcomes.
At the national level... wow. Just wow.
Most of the lies that were the framework of the Obama campaign have come home to roost in ways that no one could have anticipated.
Although, as you might expect, the GOP has once again screwed up the wet dream offered by the IRS/Tea Party scandal (heard much about that lately?) the Obama-inspired betrayal and slaughter in Benghazi, The debacle of the muslim brotherhood in Egypt, the disaster of Iran policy, And, of course, the issue illegal aliens... which the GOP is going to be complicit in when Boehner gets around to screwing the country later this upcoming year.
But the gift that is going to continue to keep on giving politically is the debacle of Obamacare.
Unfortunately, the weak-kneed, lily-livered punks running the GOP blew a golden opportunity by throwing us all under the Obamacare bus when they caved instead of standing strong.
But then, we all knew that was going to happen.
On paper, the moron in the White House should have been destroyed in the last election. But the GOP found a way to screw it up, and did so brilliantly.
The House will hold... and likely gain some seats. The Senate will remain in democrat control... the GOP will gain some seats, but not enough.
And even if it didn't, Obama would just veto the crap out of everything anyway.
Fortunately, we have no state wide elections to pollute our airwaves.
But the lies from Herrera, presuming she runs again, on TV about what she did, what she supported and what she accomplished would, no doubt, gag a maggot. Fortunately, those of us on satellite TV are not subjected to that kind of tripe except on the networks, so we won't see that much.
The GOP candidate in the 3rd Congressional will win the election, so Dingethal, who seems to have a testicular fortitude problem when it comes to addressing his positions on the issues, will find it difficult to get the money to put up anything more than token resistance.
The next cycle will be even more vicious and brutal than the last one. And each cycle will get progressively worse until the voters rise up and scream ENOUGH.
I'm 58. And that's unlikely to happen in my life time.
