Any guy who has been turned down for a date knows the social convention of coming up with some kind of excuse for not going out (instead of the much kinder “I’m just not interested”).
Claire McCaskill is the latest Democrat to decide that she will be waxing her legs that week.
She was among the first senators to endorse him over presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton in 2008, doing so just five days after Hillary’s big win in New Hampshire. That was a major vote of confidence in him coming from a key swing-state senator and prominent woman pol; Team Clinton “aggressively sought” her endorsement at the time but McCaskill stuck with Hopenchange. As recently as last October, notes National Journal, she was defiant in standing by her buddy O:
If she thought appearing with Obama would win her votes she would be there. If you don’t believe me will you believe the man in charge of electing democrats?
The man responsible for getting Democrats elected to the Congress this fall has a message for his party’s candidates: Stay away from the Democratic National Convention in September.
Listen, you can show me whatever poll you want, you can have any talking head you want pushing whatever message you want in the media but ACTION speak louder than words, and the Actions of the party says one thing to democrats.
Run away from your party!
Run away from this president!
So the GOP reaction should be this:
If we don’t take advantage of this, it’s our own fault
