Losing is good: Stranger Things Have Happened I Know

Dave Jolly has pulled the first upset of the 2014 election cycle in FL-13 over Democrat Alex Sink.  Pundits on the Right have begun to cautiously speak of  a bellwether victory, and a harbinger of things to come.  Optimistic talk for sure, but frankly something that ought scare the pants off Democrats (sorry for that visual).

However for Debbie Schultz, losing isn’t such a bad thing:

“Tonight, Republicans fell short of their normal margin in this district because the agenda they are offering voters has a singular focus – that a majority of voters oppose – repealing the Affordable Care Act* that would return us to the same old broken health care system,”

If this is encouraging news in a Florida district that was carried twice by Obama, then how encouraged should the Left be?  In the most recent nationwide approval ratings, Obamacare is still  20 points upside-down.

IKR?

So, is there a silver lining for the Left? I say yes, and it has nothing to do with Schultz’s hastily cobbled talking points.

The real loser here I think is Rand Paul who came out in support of Overby, the Libertarian.  In a race that was decided by less than 2 points, Paul would have had a lot of ‘splaining to do had Overby proven to be the spoiler.  Perhaps “loser” is too strong.  But, any time Republicans bicker among themselves, Dems smile, and the Leftist media machine has more ammo to try to control the next news cycle.

I fully expect to hear some comments from Ted Cruz to follow shortly, as the contest between he and Paul for the direction of the GOP continues.  I also expect those comments to be mischaracterized, as media shills continue to try and deflect the public’s attention away from President Obama’s signature achievement.

Stranger things have happened, I know.

Best song of the decade

In 2003, The Foo Fighters released their album One by One, which included the cut “Times Like These.”

A solo acoustic version of the song, performed by Dave Grohl, was released some time later, and it is my pick for Song of the Decade.

FDIC Friday: Times like these

Four more bank failures were announced today by the FDIC.  If anyone’s keeping score, that makes 29 so far this year.

Among The Joshua Trees

Take my love, take my land. Take me where I cannot stand. I don't care, I'm still free. You can't take the sky from me. Take me out to the black. Tell them I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea. You can't take the sky from me. There's no place I can be Since I've found Serenity......But you can't take the sky from me.
