DUmmies Enraged Over Gillibrand Pick For U.S. Senate
NewsBusters says the mainstream media's refusal to use their terminology is proof of bias. "When will the mainstream [media] begin labeling Gillibrand as a 'Maverick Democrat?'" they demand. "Or is the 'maverick' label applied by the MSM only to Republicans who are liberals or 'moderates' (really meaning liberal)?... If she holds to her views then she would definitely be qualified to be labeled as a 'Maverick Democrat' although the MSM, as we have seen, are loathe to use that term."
Notice how the DUmmies and the rest of the left get upset when a Democrat acts just the teeniest bit like a Maverick. They demand that all democrats march closely in lockstep and woe to any Democrat who diverges even slightly from the party line. So let us now watch the DUmmies get outraged over a Democrat Maverick in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who notes that Gillibrand will definitely be the hottest (blush!) member of the U.S. Senate, is in the [brackets]:
Confirmed: Kirsten Gillibrand Chosen to Fill Clinton's Senate Seat
[Caroline Kennedy is NOT amused.]
PIX11 News has learned Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand is the choice of Governor David Paterson to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton. Two Congressional sources tell PIX News that the Governor will make his announcement in Albany at noon tomorrow. He has invited members of the state's Democratic Congressional delegation to join him.
The sources told reporter Marvin Scott that the Governor has called members of the delegation for their views after Caroline Kennedy withdrew herself from consideration. One of the contenders, longterm Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney canceled a scheduled appearance on "PIX News Closeup" Friday because of a "conflict," which she did not disclose. She too will be in Albany. According to the sources, Gillibrand, now in her second congressional term, was favored by both Senator Churck Schumer and Secretary of State Clinton. Paterson has been under pressure to select a woman.
With most Democratic leaders in Albany coming from the New York City area, one source said this would be an important move for the Governor to have a Senator from upstate. And it is felt Gillibrand would be an asset to Paterson in any bid for election in 2010
[Stand by for the DUmmie fireworks.]
OMFG ... just watching Hardnards and she sounds like a nightmare. A blue dog sitting in Hillary's seat? Paterson can kiss his governorship goodbye -- NYers aren't going to stand for this.
[It's FUn to watch the NY Democrats to tear themselves apart!]
Will NYers re-elect such a blue dog STATEWIDE? I don't think so ... And what does this do for Paterson? NOTHING. He's never run for governor in his own right and now he's going to have to run for re-election after pissing off the liberals in the state. Is he back on coke or smoking something???? Makes no sense whatsoever, from any per-spective.
[Let Paterson keep smoking whatever he's smoking. I LOVE that he created a nightmare for the Democrats.]
This is a excellent choice and she supports the rights of gun owners!!!!
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Idiotic choice, goodbye Paterson-lost my vote. We now will lose that house seat in 2010 and have basically a moderate Repuker as our Senator.
[It's all good!]
I miss Spitzer . . . and I'm in NJ
[Is that you Ashley Alexandra Dupre?]
Patterson strikes me as a dumbbell.
[Before you call somebody a dumbbell you might want to learn how to spell his name.]
If Maloney doesn't run in 2010, I hope Bobby Jr. gets in. This would never have happened if he hadn't withdrawn from consideration.
[That mellifluous voice of Bobby Jr. is sure to win over the voters.]
Piss poor choice... I did not like her much, and I fail to see the long term strategy here. Her Congressional seat will probably go repuKKKe now and if she decides to run for elction in two years, she is not going to make it... WTF was Paterson thinking????
[He was thinking that it would be FUn to piss you off.]
What's so great about her that's worth telling the activist base of the party to "pound sand and peddle it walking", as a banned poster once put it. That's the only possible message choosing her sends, that I can see. What's the upside of picking this person?
["Pound sand and peddle it walking?" Would that banned poster happen to be Ben Burch?]
IMO, they decided to pick someone beatable in 2010 as opposed to someone who could handily defend the seat. Basically, it will be a free for all next year.
[It's ALL good!!!]
**sigh** the second amendment...blah blah blah.. That just needs to be rewritten. That could make this whole "gun" thing go away.
[An inconvenient constitution.]
a nasty intra-party spat that opens the door for the Republicans would be a real disaster.
Idiotic choice. She's going to get the primary challenge from hell. A Blue Dog can't represent that entire state. It's going to be a free-for-all in two years and Dems will lose her district, also.
[Losing that district is icing on the cake.]
She's co-sponsor of the f'ing border fence bill for crissakes. Can't NY do better?
[Senator Karl Marx?]
I am disappointed that Patterson did not name a bona fide progressive to this seat.
[She's not BONAFIDE?]
What a terrible pick. Cuomo would have been 1000 times better!!!
[At least I know for sure that you're NOT Kerry Kennedy.]
Well She won't be re-elected in two years. Niether will the Govenor.
[A win/win for Republicans! Thank you Governor Paterson!!!]
