Corrupting the Process: The Torricelli Precedent
I’ve said for a while that I believe that the DNC is soon going to realize that John F’ing Kerry is a loser when it comes to the run for the Presidency. Others have said that the DNC wants to lose 2004 because that will put Hillary on the 2008 ticket in position to win.
I don’t think so.
I think the Democrats are slowly, dimly beginning to realize that a landslide loss (or even a mudslide loss) to Dubya will signal that the moonbat contingent has destroyed the Party and made it totally ineffectual. They cannot afford to lose. After Gray Davis’s recall, a loss in November will be their nadir.
The New Jersey Democrat party decided that it could not afford to have a Republican win one of New Jersey’s Senate seats in 2002. So, in violation of State election law and with the active partisan support of the New Jersey Supreme Court, the legal candidate – Robert Torricelli – was dropped and Frank Lautenberg was substituted on the ticket. Lautenberg won, of course.
I honestly believe it’s going to happen again. Now there’s evidence that such thoughts are making the rounds within the moonbat brigades.
With the air gushing out of John Kerry’s balloon, it may be only a matter of time until political insiders in Washington face the dread reality that the junior senator from Massachusetts doesn’t have what it takes to win and has got to go. As arrogant and out of it as the Democratic political establishment is, even these pols know the party’s got to have someone to run against George Bush. They can’t exactly expect the president to self-destruct into thin air.
The piece suggests nominating John Edwards or “staging an open convention” in Boston. This would be, of course, regardless of whether Sen. Kerry has acquired enough delegates to be the Democratic nominee.
I think they’re going to nominate Hillary.
As James Hudnall wrote back in September, “only Democrats and dictators are afraid of Elections.”
