Remember ‘Hottie McAwesome’?

Posted on | September 19, 2010 | 86 Comments

Excellent advice from Hillbuzz:

This actually reminds us a lot of how Democrats tried to use Scott Brown’s ROCKING HOT Cosmo centerfold pictures against him, thinking calling the man “a former nude model” would prevent him from being elected Senator.  The Democrat playbook is to find something they think will embarrass a person, attack him or her personally, and drive a wedge between that candidate and voters by turning the person into a pariah and laughingstock. . . .

Read the whole thing. Being sexy is so bad for Republicans

Let me point out that the Marcela Hoeven bikini scandal has done nothing to undermine GOP prospects in North Dakota. And to completely change the subject, how many weedheads in Delaware know about Christine O’Donnell’s position on the War on Drugs?

“Drug policy should be decided at the state level, not the federal level.” . . .
Will McVay, Chairman of the Kent County Libertarian Party . . . stated that she “did not shy away from the libertarian label.”

Hmmmm. It’s almost as if O’Donnell is not a one-dimensional cartoon stereotype. Longtime O’Donnell supporter Jerry Wilson stands up to defend Christine from the latest smears, and Carol at No Sheeples Here adds to the fun:

Oh, look: That wacky witchy anti-wanking wingnut all the “experts” said could never beat Mike Castle has raised nearly $2 million in less than five days since she beat him. And she just got $20 from me. (Y’all have been so good about hitting my tip jar, I’d feel bad if I didn’t give a little.)

Put your money where your heart is, people: Fight back!


UPDATE: Putting aside for the moment that we’re talking about the Future of the Country, this Delaware fight is the best online entertainment value of the year! Anytime Jeff Goldstein decides to start pounding the hell out of Patterico, you know you’re going to get your money’s worth.

Mark Levin is hanging tough, naturally, and Dan Riehl . . . my God, who’s ever seen the like of this? Bam! on Patterico, then Bam! Bam! again, and Bam! Bam! Bam! on Hinderaker. The most remarkable of all, however, was when Dan threw an elbow at Mary Katharine Ham.

Drew M. at Ace of Spades wonders what the impact of the drip, drip, drip will be. Let me say this: The very worst of it, to date, was when three of her former staffers went telling tales to Politico. Her financial history is already yesterday’s news — “Asked and answered,” as the Clinton White House used to say — and she’s already held her own in the first debate with Coons.

So she’s been hit, hit, hit for five consecutive days and raised nearly $2 million in that time. She’s still on her feet, you see.

Bloodied, but unbowed.

My gut hunch is that she’s taken the worst of it already. The Castle campaign dumped everything really damaging it had on her, and still lost. Can Democrats dig up anything worse, or else recycle Castle’s stuff to truly lethal effect? Kinda doubt it.

O’Donnell is a little more than 10 points down in the polls, but she’s up around 40% with six weeks to go in a Blue state against a bald guy who raised taxes three times in four years. Let me remind you that on Jan. 10 — just nine days before the Senate special election in Massachusetts — the Boston Globe poll showed Martha Coakley with a 15-point lead over Scott Brown.

We remember how that turned out, don’t we?

By God, don’t tell me Christine can’t win. Give her all you can.
