The demands of complete subjugation to the democrat party and its leader have proven to be too much for several key democrat hacks. Two senators and one governor have abandoned plans to run for re-election in November.
Most notable is the contemptible and entirely corrupt undeserving beneficiary of dynasty politics, Chris “Countrywide” Dodd, architect of much of America’s financial crisis. The felonious Dodd is waxing lyrical about his personal woes, including the death of his Waitress Sandwich partner, Ted Kennedy.
The more plausible explanation for Dodd’s abrupt decision is that he became yet another casualty of the Chicago Way. Dodd’s complete inability to stay out of sleazy self- serving deals made him an easy mark for Rahm Emanuel. No doubt the former ballerina gave Dodd the option of not being prosecuted for multiple felonies in exchange for his bowing out of the November senate race.
Some democrats will surrender rather than face the disgrace of vanquishment by huge margins in November and lack of party support. Dodd, however, has proven himself entirely unblushing when confronted with evidence of astonishing ethical lapses.
Obama doesn’t want Dodd’s scandals and low approval numbers jeopardizing a democrat seat. Any democrat perceived as a political liability or putting up resistance to the radical party line would be wise to do some resume updating.
Republicans can savor the moment, but shouldn’t get too giddy. The party has a real flair for losing entirely winnable elections.
