Trying Their Best to Lose

Democrats tries their darndest to lose this year. First they treated Howard Dean as a contender. Then they selected John F. Kerry—JFK, get it?—as their candidate. Then they actually let Kerry out in public where everybody could see for themselves how unappealing a candidate he was. THEN some bozo elector in Minnesota voted for John Edwards, likely on accident.

But New York’s democrats take the cake. Throwing away 31 electoral votes on some guy named “John L. Kerry of the State of Massachusetts”? That’s just going too far.

Contrary to what others think, even if the ticket was switched with Edwards as Prez, I doubt they would have had a chance either. It will probably take them at least until 2012 to have a shot at taking the white house back.

Such pessimism! I don’t think I share your dour assessment of the Dems’ chances in 2008, the primary reason being that I don’t think there is any reason to put more faith in the Reps than the Dems in terms of their ability to select a quality candidate.

Unless, of course, the Dems are dumb enough to go with Clinton or Kerry…
