Not The Sharpest Tool In The Shed

"For eight years before we arrived in the West Wing, Mr. Boehner and his party ran the economy literally into the ground," VP Biden said. I am just wondering if it was put into the ground with shovels? Hammers? A backhoe? His misuse of the word 'literally' is kind of amusing. He literally uses it ALL the time. His whole point of contention with Boehner's address is that he is nostalgic for the Bush economy. I mean it's an outrage that Boehner wants to go back to the days of 4.5% unemployment. He clearly didn't hear or read Boehner, all the press going to his calling for the heads of O's economic team. But inside the speech were some undeniable facts and ideas going forward for a potential Republican run House. Everyone in media on the Left would rather just make fun of his name than argue on the merits.

Biden: 'We've seen this movie before': The Swamp

Speaking of blunt instruments. Dan Quayle's kid Ben Quayle won the Republican primary in Arizona District 3, more than likely going to Congress in John Shadegg's vacant seat come November. It was a pretty tight race and there are a couple of good conservatives in that district that ran good campaigns and who we should expect to hear more from in the future. Namely Vernon Parker, he ran a good campaign based on principles and got his political start with Lee Atwater. Ben Quayle I am hoping will do a good job, but won this primary on name recognition and money advantage. He has tough shoes to fill as John Shadegg has always been one of the better members of Congress.

Good news out of Florida though, Meek won the Democratic Senate primary which is important. If billionaire buffoon Jeff Greene (who had Mike Tyson serve as his best man) would have beaten him, Democrats would have thrown their money and support behind Charlie Crist...he of the original orange tan. It also would have given traditional Democrats the excuse to pull the lever for Charlie, now that is gone. As election day nears I think you will see some of those Democrats pull away from Crist and return to Meek thereby giving Marco Rubio the easier road. I have made it no secret that he is who I support wholeheartedly in that Senate race, from when he was 30 points down to Crist in the polls to now.
