Has anybody else noticed how thoroughly Susan Hutchison got her ass kicked?

With the latest ballot drop, Hutchison has fallen to 40.93% of the vote. To put that in perspective, that’s less than a point and a half better than admitted-Republican David Irons garnered in 2005, a race in which a third party candidate captured 4.6% of the vote.

And an 18-point margin? That’s embarrassing, especially considering that she actually thought she was going to win this thing up until a couple days before the election.

    Yesterday was an important anniversary, the 20th anniversary of the day people would say never happened. The fall of the Berlin Wall, I have been surfing Deutsche-Welle’s site for their coverage off and on the past few months, and one of the interesting things was interviewing the 2 activist/film makers that filmed the Leipzig protests and lack of a crackdown. The film got to West Germany, and DW-TV was beamed into East Germany and the anchors added the words “The Police and Army did nothing”, and the protests, already in the tens of thousands, kept growing, and in an attempt to appease them, by mid-October, the East German establishment threw out long time hardliner Honniker and replaced him with the man who ironically ordered the stand down of the police and army units in Leipzig. It set up the blunder that led to the events of November 9th. The propaganda minister makes a hastily called press conference saying that all travel restrictions would be lifted immediately and crowds gathered at the wall.,,4867139,00.html

Asswipe Dunn whored his little pussy ass out on that one too. Phillips and his cunting staff can suck it as well. Except for Larry Gossett and Jane Hague, Dow should just hit the flush lever on his way out the door.

    Maybe future candidates will answer questions, instead of suggesting that they think the question isn’t relevant to an election.

    Obviously if voters are asking, then voters think it is relevant to know a candidate’s position on a woman’s right to choose – for example.

    At least Susan tried to participate in politics. She tried and wasn’t successful. I admire that.

    How come Wall Street isn’t as smart as Glen Beck? Everyone ‘knows’ Obama is an evil socialist out to dismantle the capitalist way of live and crush small businesses and all private companies. Republicans “believe” that. Mr. Beck should tell Wall Street, all of the folks there don’t seem to have his in depth “analysis”. Seems today the stock market is up 68% since Obama started implementing his policies. Up to what it was before the election, before the melt down (10,200 today). If they knew Obama was attacking and destroying their institutions, they might not see as much profit potential in the future, driving down stocks. Huh. I thought the ‘free market’ was always right? I guess not…Glen Beck is right…the free market is stupid.

    Socialist? Republicans always point at the moon and scream that it’s the sun. They live in a world that’s the exact opposite of reality. Evolution isn’t true (despite MILLIONS of pages of research) but creationism is (because it came to someone in a dream). Right. Obama is the exact OPPOSITE of a socialist. He’s a Wall Street whore. A socialist will seize private companies, take their assets and money for the government. We did the OPPOSITE. Obama took my money as a citizen and GAVE IT to Goldman Sachs and GM. GM is a good example. The government didn’t seize them and their assets like simple minded Republicans think/believe. GM is still a public/stock traded corporation, under all the rules and regulations that it was 15 years ago. You can go buy your own shares in GM today if you want. The government just took MY tax payer dollars and bought open shares of GM. So Obama took private citizens moneys and used it to prop up a (still) private for-profit corporation. Same when we baled out the Savings & Loans previously. Socialists? A socialist would TAKE Goldman Sachs money and keep dispute it to the ‘people’…Obama took the PEOPLE’s money and distributed it to Goldman.

    If socialist just means spending a lot of dollars via the government, Ronald Reagan is a huge socialist. So is George W. Bush.

    Socialist? In best Inigo Montoya voice, “You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.”

    No SJ. Are you taste testing Steve’s Stupid Solution? You seem to forget Reagan went against those career State Department DIP-lomats and said that statement over their objections.

    “Part of this was Reagan’s attempt to codify while in office a Cold War narrative developed by the anti-communist conservative movement that formed him over three decades even as he helped form it. That narrative saw liberal notions about how to handle communist regimes as provoking aggression or causing catastrophe: Franklin Roosevelt’s Stalin diplomacy, Harry Truman’s Marshall mission to China, John Kennedy’s offer of a “status quo” to Khrushchev in Vienna, Jimmy Carter’s statement that we have an “inordinate fear of communism.”

    Reagan had the carefully arrived at view that criminal regimes were different, that their whole way of looking at the world was inverted, that they saw acts of conciliation as weakness, and that rather than making nice in return they felt an inner compulsion to exploit this perceived weakness by engaging in more acts of aggression. All this confirmed the criminal mind’s abiding conviction in its own omniscience and sovereignty, and its right to rule and victimize others.”

    Sometimes SJ you are so stupid when it comes to historical facts. Butt as always you are a friend!

    @18, @23 Let’s not forget Lech Walesa, John Paul II and a legion of other Catholic clerics in Poland, whose defiance created a crack in the fabric of Communist authoritarianism that eventually spread until it all fell apart. Reagan gets some credit for playing the arms-race game to what should have been its conclusion, with the resulting stress in the precarious Soviet economy accellerating what would have been its inevitable collapse–and in so doing may well have sowed the seeds of America’s own decline.

    Aside from that, Reagan was an incompetent boob whose idealism was misplaced, and whose cadre of confidantes were, and are, crooked as hell. And whether or not Ronnie wagged his arthritic finger at Gorby and told him to “tear down this wall”, it was the German people who actually did it.

    One thing that bothers me about the victory over Hutchinson. It wasn’t big enough.

    Let’s face it – the Republicans screwed up big time while they were in power over the past several years, and it became apparant in some very big ways:

    * The dismantaling of FEMA and limits on outsourcing basic government services was exposed by Katrina in 2005;

    * the resurgent Iraqi insurgency in 2004-2008 demonstrated that Republicans didn’t know how to plan or run an occupation which naturally following a war;

    * the explosion of the budget deficit and the national debt due to tax cuts favoring the wealthy showed they weren’t really “fiscal conservatives”;

    * The huge profits under “no-bid” contracts showed they supported profiteers in both war and natural disaster;

    * The near-collapse of wall street and the banking system showed they didn’t know how to do basic oversight and regulation of the country’s financial system.

    So with all that in mind, the Republicans still field a candidate in the King County race who has no experience running for public office (not even for a school board seat!); who’s private sector experience is limited reading a telepromter and managing a non-profit entity funded by contributions from the wealthy; and who has a history of not being entirely truthful with her employer (and later the voters).

    And this candidate still gets 40% of the vote!!!!

    Given Luke Essner’s comments the other day concerning Abe Lincoln, I suspect that they could roll out his dead corpse and run it as a candidate, and it would still pull in 39% to 40% of the vote.

    I think it’s past time for us to keep congratulating ourselves on the victories of 2008 and realize that if the Republicans ever do run a creditable candidate, they might actually win an election. Waiting on the other side to self-destruct might be an amusing recreational activity, but it’s hardly a strategy.

    Military history is ripe with instances where a general, believing victory had been achieved, failed to pursue a “beaten” enemy, only to have the enemy rally and ultimately win the war.

    Now is not the time to let up.

    We need to continue to clean our own ranks of the currupt and chair-warmers who hold office. Gone are the days when we couldn’t afford to do without anyone who had once carried a district.

    We need to build up strong local candidates who will be the future of the Democratic Party. By feeding a new generation into the lower-level offices, we can field experienced and qualified candidates in major elections over the next 5, 10, 20, and 30 years.

    We need to agressively attack Republican attempts to negatively define us. We should never hesitate to challenge them to open debates in fair forums to show that their ideology is nothing more than empty sloganeering. It seems to have worked with Susan Hutchinson, when they got her away from reading from the teleprompter, she had to open her mouth and use her own words, and at that point she lost the election.

    31 – One interesting set of numbers I see in the election returns for King County is the percentages of approval for I-1033 and rejection of R-71.

    They both stand at about 30 percent with R-71 being slightly higher for rejection at 33 percent.

    I chalk up the slight difference to the religious noise for R-71 with some religious conservative Dems being fearful of same sex marriage or “special rights”, what have you.

    Suzie’s 10 percent premium on top of that 30 percent I chalk up to her name recognition and some people including a lot of women getting antsy with the Dem establishment and wanting to try something new.

    The thirty percent is interesting. Here in Seattle/7th CD a solid 17 percent votes for the nutcase that runs against Jim McDermott. I’d have to check past election returns but that 30 percent might be a solid right wing block in King County – tuned into KVI/KTTH, watching Faux News and trolling blogs. 30 percent at least in off-year elections that an Eyman initiative brings out. The number is probably somewhat lower in the even years with its higher turnout and GOTV energy.

    I sense people are getting some Dem fatigue and they will more than likely “try out” someone like a Rob McKenna for Governor in 2012 – who strangely enough is hated by a lot of wingnuts but they’ll come around eventually.

    As for Reagan being the “hammer of Communism” and responsible for it’s collapse…

    Communism principally collapsed due to the internal strains within it. Some factors did either speed up that collapse, others tended to delay it.

    Communism in 1939 was already dying due to internal economic stresses. Stalin had tried to prop it up with draconian police-state tactics, the creation of the Gulag system as a cheap labor system as well as a method of discouraging dissent, the seizure and re-distribution of wealth from his opponants to his supporters, and territorial expansion (Finland, Baltic States) in an attempt to find new fodder to feed the ponzi scheme which was the Soviet economy. By late 1939 he had pretty much exhausted his ways to keep the Soviet economy propped up, and collapse was inevitable absent some outside grand event.

    Of course, the Germans provided that event with the invasion of Poland, and his recipricol invasion of eastern Poland (agreed to in advance under secret covenants of the non-agression pact signed with the Germans months earlier). As Stalin absorbed the wealth of eastern Poland and fought the Winter War with Finland, he was then hit by the German invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941. Although the Germans expected this to be the the final blow which would cause the USSR to collapse, it actually brought the country together and provided the impetus for aid from the U.S. under the lend-lease act.

    By 1945, with the USSR occupying all of eastern Europe, the USSR was free to absorbe the wealth of those countries to feed it’s continuing ponzi-scheme of an economy. This, along with a continued militarization of the economy, kept things going for about twenty years.

    To keep in perspective how fragile the USSR economy was at that time, a Soviet officer who defected to the west once reported that a Soviet general had closed down a tavern in east Germany becuase his soldiers were coming back to base late (and drunk). But when it came time to issue pay to the soldiers, he was dismayed to learn that there was no pay available – the Soviet system relied upon it’s soldiers spending all of their pay in the tavern, which was then fed right back into the payroll system.

    So by the 1970’s the Soviets were suffering from considerable stresses – economic, diplomatic, and political.

    The signing of the Human Rights accords in Helsinki accords gave dissidents in the Soviet Union an international forum and legitimacy – the Soviets could no longer claim that it was an “internal matter” only. Jimmy Carter’s insistence on adherence to those principles, by both our friends and our enemies, created difficulties politically at home and in dealing with “friendly” despots like the Shah of Iran, but also placed incredible pressure upon the Soviets. This created the environment where even old-guard communists like Breznev felt it was politically impossible to crack down on an outspoken Polish bishop (who became Pope) and a trade-union movement. So after Breshnev died and after a short term in office by another old-guard KGB guy, Gorbachov comes to power.

    But saving the economy of the Soviet Union at that time was the big jump in oil prices starting in the mid-1970’s. With few of their citizens able to afford cars, the USSR could afford to sell the produce from their oil fields at market prices to the western world, which subsidized their economy for a while. U.S. oil policy in the 1980’s – which reversed Carter’s conservation initiatives and encouraged more consumption – helped keep the USSR economy humming.

    It was during this time that Reagan pursued the missle defense initiatives that the Republicans contend “bankrupted” the USSR. But there were lots of other economic and political factors at play.

    By the late 1980’s there was an explosion in the availability of computer technology in west. This had military implications, to be sure. But more important from an economic standpoint was the productivity advances. By the time the Berlin Wall fell in 1989 just about every office worker had a PC (or Apple) on their desk. Fast departing were the days when office work required a “team” of an executive and a typist/secretary, computers soon merged those jobs into one. Computers also led to rapid communications, which threated the Soviet regime – even if they could catch up in computer technology and production, they could hardly let everyone have one, without making it possible for average citizens to bypass the internal controls the Soviets had to suppress dissent.

    Gorbachev knew that he had to reform Soviet society to make it competitive. This meant that he had to open the Soviet society to creative dissent, and he had to push the East European nations to do likewise. But once unleashed, the creature could not be put back into the box.

    So the fall of the Berlin Wall came in stages. First, Gorbachev opens up the Soviet Union to limited dissent. Then Gorbachev informs his E. European allies that the USSR won’t support them economically any longer, and that they must also open up to dissent. Then the Hungarians (in part due to an internal power struggle) open up their borders with the west. Since E. Germany has open travel between E. Germany and hungary, thousands of young people immediatly pack their backpacks for “vactions” in Hungary, followed by a quick transit through the Hungarian border to the west. Shortly before that, E. Germany and W. Germany sign an agreement whereby W. German lends E. Germany badly needed money in return for E. Germany removing automatic firing weapons on the border zones. The E. Germans see that continued attempts to keep their citizens out of the west have failed, and the German Propoganda minister mistakenly announces that the borders would be opened immediately (it was supposed to be a limited opening not to be effective until the next day).

    As hundreds of thousands of E. Germans streamed through the open gates, Pres. George W. Bush had enough sense at the time to keep his mouth shut, and not proclaim victory (which might have goaded the hard-liners in the west into action).

    Anyway, lots of factors played into the fall of the Berlin Wall. Reagan’s “star wars” program was just one of them.

    MG: Yes, in 1989-90. It was not a single action but a process. Bush and I made the declaration at Malta, but Reagan would have had no less grounds for saying that he played a crucial role, because he, together with us, had a fundamental change of attitude. Therefore we were all victors: we all won the cold war because we put a stop to spending $10 trillion on the cold war, on each side.”

    No SJ. Are you taste testing Steve’s Stupid Solution? You seem to forget Reagan went against those career State Department DIP-lomats and said that statement over their objections.

    Yeh, I suspect the State Department experts were concerned with many comments made by Reagan. hew was senile.

    The pnly issue here is whether Reagan’s gets credit for the real work done by Truman, Kennedy, Carter, and yes even Nixon? Aside from publically insulting Gorbachev, what do you wanna tell us that the ancient man did to help bring en end to the totalitarian regime?

    If your Christianity were not so easily pout aside, you might want to look at some of the references I gave you for the non violent marches led by Lutherans and Catholics. Or is Christianity irrelevant when its leaders and motivators are followers of Alinsky. Brandt, and MLK?

    For that matter, if you actually knew some history, rather than mining the right wing troves on the net, you might ask which American President confronted the USSR of Afghanistan and which Soviet leader decided to withdraw?

    As for celebrating Reagun’s belated cold war rhetoric, what effin good did it do us? Are we better off with Putin and the Khazaks then we would have been with Gorby and an intact USSR?

    Puddybud Remembers Progressives Forget spews:

    Once again rujax the dumb cinder block is a dumbest cinder block around. Too bad Puddy created two categories dumb brick and dumb cinder block. Each vie for the bottom of the HA Libtardo barrel.

    Glenn Beck has 5 best sellers right now!

    let’s go back rujax to July 5, 2009.

    Beck made the New York Times Best Sellers #1 list on fiction, non-fiction and paperback original bestseller lists. These are Arguing with Idiots, An Inconvenient Book, and nonfiction paperback Common Sense. This made Glenn Beck one of just a few authors in history to hit #1 on the New York Times in three categories.

    Beck’s Common Sense is joined on the NYT paperback non-fiction bestseller list by An Inconvenient Book at #4, giving him two books in the top 5.

    And Beck’s hardcover non-fiction Arguing With Idiots, hit the New York Times best seller list as #5.

    Now his latest book, A Christmas Sweater, is #1 for children’s books on New York Times.

    Beck is one of the first to have books debut at the #1 spot on The New York Times’ four book lists: hardcover fiction, hardcover non-fiction, paperback non-fiction and children’s books.

    From HuffPo – “The Christmas Sweater: A Picture Book is Beck’s third book on current New York Times bestseller lists. Arguing with Idiots (Threshold Editions), Glenn Beck’s most recent bestseller is currently #5 on the hardcover nonfiction list, and is in its 6th consecutive week on the list. Beck’s Common Sense (Threshold Editions) is #8 on the NYT paperback nonfiction list and has sold over 1 million copies since its release on June 16th. Common Sense occupied the #1 spot for 15 weeks and has spent 21 straight weeks in the top 10.”

    This is why Puddy is knowledgeable and rujax is a dumb cinder block. Rujax can’t even correctly check facts when the facts are there for him to check the facts

    All he had to do was do what previous Soviet leaders had done before him – crack down on dissent with an iron hand, use Soviet tanks to make sure E. European politicians kept their borders closed, ignore the political outcry in the rest, and ignore the ever-widening gap between the well-being of his citizens and those of the west, and dare the U.S. to do anything about it. Gorbachev’s predecessors had done this before with impunity in Berlin, in Hungary, and in Czechoslovakia.

    For all the posturing by Reagan, there was nothing he or George W. Bush could have done if Gorbachev had called his bluff. To his credit, Gorbachav cared more for peace and the welfare of his nation than he did for maintaining the Soviet regime.
