From The Peoples' Cube, of course

Now that the Taxachusetts race for Teddy K's old barstool is over, and Republican Brown beat out Dem Coakley in the bluest of blue states, I'd like to note how this happened in spite of the best efforts of the leftist Democratic cheerleaders who masquerade as "journalists". Need proof? We'll start with mild and go to wild.

In the pot-calling-the-kettle black category, Coakley staffers wouldn't allow a "biased" reporter into their office, claiming civil rights and private property rights, "which we still have despite Nazis like you!"

Next up, wow! Look at this. Whoulda thunk? Of course, they're blaming Bush for it: "But the problems came from the previous administration. So we're blaming poor Obama, who's working 36 hours a day ... to solve these problems that he inherited." "One thing the Democrats have done wrong? We haven't kept the focus on this disaster on the Republicans who brought it upon us. We've tried too hard to do that right thing, and that's to fix it, as opposed to spend more of our time and energy pointing the finger at who got us [here] in the first place."

The more mainstream of the "Mainstreamers" worried if they were doing enough to swing the election for Coakley.

KELLY O’DONNELL, NBC: "What we`ve got to figure out is whether all the talk we`re doing about this race will fire up Democrats to try to prevent a loss, a stunning loss, really, if it were to happen."

MAGGIE RODRIGUEZ, CBS: "It’ll be interesting to see if Brown the Republican wins if the Democrats can defer his swearing in and get health care passed.”

DIANE SAWYER, ABC: "After all these months of fighting for it, and then may be slipping away at the last minute for the White House. But are there options on health care reform? Other ways to go to get a vote?"

Then there's all our old tingly-legged pals over PMSNBC, outright endorsing voter fraud and cheating to get the election to turn out "their" way.

ED SCHULTZ: "I tell you what, if I lived in Massachusetts, I'd try to vote ten times. I don't know if they'd let me or not, but I'd try to. Yeah, that's right, I'd cheat to keep these bastards out. I would. 'Cause that's exactly what they are."

CHRIS MATTHEWS: "You know in the old days, maybe I shouldn`t be harkening back to the old days, if the Democrats faced this kind of a disaster in the works, you`d go back to your ones, the people you were sure are going to vote Democrat, and you`d make sure they got to the polling place, you`d get them lunch, you`d get them a car. You`d make sure they got there and in some cases you`d be buying people to get them, not officially buying them, but getting them there as block secretaries, as block captains, you`d be getting them there with street money, legitimate but it`s a little bit old school. But I hear talking to somebody today there aren`t people up there in Massachusetts like that anymore."

Feeling rather bitchy the morning after, the Politico was raving that sexism must be the only reason for Brown's win: "...a glass ceiling that remains almost impenetrable, even in the blue state of Massachusetts...To get an idea of how mind-bending the gender dynamics in this campaign were, consider this...But it is an illustration of the kind of double standard voters apply to female candidates — a double standard that some longtime women’s advocates see in the success of Republican Scott Brown."

Of course it was our buddy Kieth Olbermann, who has to resort to such crazy rants in a desperate attempt to draw any kind of attention to himself to keep his estimated 37 viewers from leaving, who took the cake for Best "frothing-at-the-mouth-vitriol-spewing insane rant" Award hands-down:

KIETH OLBERMANN: "In short, in Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against woman and against politicians with whom he disagrees. In any other time in our history, this man would have been laughed off the stage as an unqualified and a disaster in the making by the most conservative of conservatives. Instead, the commonwealth of Massachusetts is close to sending this bad joke to the Senate of the United States."

I have my problems with Fox News, mainly Establishment GOP Poster Boy Sean Hannity, but for the state-run media to call Fox biased is pretty hilarious. Once more, as always, they prove themselves utterly impervious to the concept of irony. Let's hope they continue working so hard to put themselves out of business.

Who wudda thunk it possible. Even I was expecting it to come closer, and end up in a fight like the Franken scandal.

I guess they figured Teddy's old barstool was in the bag. By the time they realized it was going to be so close, they didn't have time to crank up dead-and-fictional-voters / more-absentee-votes-than-the-population-of-the-county ACORN machine.

They learned their lesson, though. Next time I expect to see purple-clad SEIU thugs wheeling corpses on cargo dollies into the polls to vote and Black Panthers guarding the doors.

If that doesn't work, well, they can always blame Bush.
