The Donk's Senate Chances

Sphere: Related Content

This site has always been clear about the fact that the Democrat's implosion will keep them from winning the Senate or House. I've also been a big supporter of the theory that Howard Dean is an idiot and was the worst choice for DNC Chairman. Recently, the election outlook was looking dim, but the Howie Dean outlook remained the same--he's still an idiot.

Anyway, here's an update:

Dean especially has been taking heat from Sen. Chuck Schumer, head of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, and from minority leaders Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi about the amount of upfront spending the DNC has been making. They had been pressing for the DNC to invest funds into the House and Senate campaign committees so that the funds could be used for important races.

"We had targeted Pennsylvania and Maryland as high cost races," says an outside Democrat political consultant. "After that, you're looking at Missouri and Minnesota as races we really wanted to win. Now, we're looking at spending a lot more in Maryland and Minnesota, and a lot more than we probably budgeted in Washington and Michigan. That means less for other states. The upshot is if the numbers hold or continue to get worse, we aren't winning the Senate."

The success of Michael Steele in Maryland has got the donks reeling as they never imagined a black man could garner any support as a Republican. He's run a brilliant campaign thus far.

Update: More here with donk whining here and here.

They're starting to get agitated because they know in their bleeding little hearts that it's going to happen again. In spite of all the bad things their comrades in the media have been covering (and making up) that they will not win any big prizes this year. Sucks to be them I guess.
