winning!

Republicans have scored an upset victory in a New York City House race that became a referendum on President Barack Obama‘s economic policies.

Retired media executive and political novice Bob Turner defeated Democratic state Assemblyman David Weprin (WEHP’-rihn) in a special election Tuesday to succeed Rep. Anthony Weiner (WEE’-nur), a seven-term Democrat…

(WEE’-nur) LOL!!!

Republican Mark Amodei wins GOP-leaning district in Nevada House special election.

    ..as the President of the United States was heard to say to the Republican Congressman and Senators who went to the White House and were ultimately used as political fodder for the devices of the President; “elections have consequences….”

    …et tu, President Zero….

    Apparently, that Donk candidate in NY pulled some real boners in the campaign, and got himself labelled as Mr Weprin-Grade-Stupid.

    GOP hasn’t held that seat in 90 years. As Kate keeps asking, “Is there anything Obama can’t do?”

    Thank God the Socialist Worker Party split the commie won! Their candidate got about 300 votes or fully 0% of the total.

    In B-HO parlance, tonight’s races resulted in one Republican seat created and one saved… which is about the same number of jobs from his stimulus bill.

    From now on that B-HO quote will be “Elections Erections have consequences.”

    Breaking news….Today, unexpectedly, Republican turnout was higher than expected, and Dem loyalty was less than expected..

    That is the sound…of inevitability.

    Drudge is right about this being revenge of the Jews.

    Weprin got smacked with his Ground Zero Mosque support.

    Weprin surrered by association for the shabby treatment of Isreal and its’ Prime Minister.

    The Jewish vote has been reliably monolithic for nearly a century. Obama has put it into play in less than three years.

    “Is there anything he can not do.”

    Some genius will make the headline “GOP Wins the Wiener Seat,” if they haven’t already.

    Just like that Senate seat in MA belonged to the Kennedys. Right.

    When a Republican wins in that NY district, I feel a tiny bit encouraged that there might still be a chance for our beloved nation.

    It;s a long way until November 2012, and there will be the largest amount of violence inciting, cheating, lying and such from the left and their Marxist media shills.

    Batten down the hatches, this is still going to be a battle.

    Yep,
    a couple more relief cuts in felling the deadwood tree.
    Now … which way is this rottenness gonna fall next year,
    and how much of the healthy forest will be damaged in the fall?

    It just warms my old heart to see the seat held by Chuck Schumer and der Weinersnitchel now in the hands of Republicans.
    If New Yorkers can be bitch slapped in to their senses, there is hope for the rest of the nation. Now, if we can just get the Republican party to move a bit to the right and shrink the federal government back down to a managable size.

    There was a huge backfire of a dirty trick yesterday as Dems tried to pretend to be annoying GOP callers – failed miserably because it was such a transparent ploy.

    WTH possessed them to run Weprin, anyway? Apparently this reputation is not *new*.
