Maddow: ‘Those Nickels and Dimes’

Posted on | November 8, 2010 | 9 Comments

OK, everybody and his third cousin Hot Air, Red State, Weasel Zippers, Verum Serum, Newsbusters — has already posted this Johnny Dollar video, but even though I’m late to the party, I’ll gladly join the dogpile:

Johnny Dollar put a lot of work into this thorough fisking of Rachel Maddow, so it’s extra-good. And you know what makes it even better?

We kicked their ass so hard on Nov. 2 they’ll be cross-eyed for six weeks.

Some people are hung up on bitchin’ about Senate races, and Erick Erickson’s wanting to do a vengeance number on the RNC, but I ain’t into all that now.

The other day I talked to Vince Kreul, who worked on the winning VA-9 race. (I reported on Morgan Griffith’s campaign for The American Spectator and blogged about it here.) Before Vince got to VA-9 — he was doing “Victory Fund” work for the RNC and VAGOP — he worked on three different losing Republican primary campaigns: Rick Barber in AL-2, Les Phillip in AL-5 and Kerry Roberts in TN-6.

Vince’s candidates lost those three primaries, but the candidates who got the nominations won all three seats, previously held by Democrats — a wave so freaking huge that this one 26-year-old GOP operative worked in four districts that flipped D-to-R.

Maybe later on we can get all into the spilled milk and bitter recriminations over missed opportunities, but not now. The kind of mood I’m in right now, baby, you can find me in the back of a jacked-up tailgate . . .

    Rachel Madcow really is a sanctimonious, hypocritical twit, isn’t she?

    Somebody needs to edit in her ‘Helpful Hints For Hypocrites” series snark-filled smack talk…

    I guess MSNBC host’s don’t watch their network either.
