Don’t let that doorknob hit ya where the good Lord split ya

November 9, 2006

Macaca Man is expected to concede the Virginia Senate race later this afternoon. Outstanding. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Now he’ll have more time to spend on Civil War re-enactments and kicking puppies.

Along with creating an opening that the Democrats can use — will use, please God — to lead the country back to fiscal and strategic sanity, the election has served as a big vaudeville hook whisking away some very tiresome and/or offensive figures with ambitions for 2008.

Macaca Man heads that list, of course, and so does frothin’ Rick Santorum, who was also being touted by wingers as just the man to administer the coup de grace to American values continue the work of the Bush administration. And as much as I’ll miss Congresswoman Ring-a-Ding-Ding, her absence is a small price to pay for the pleasure of seeing Curt Weldon and his ilk loaded into a cannon and fired back across the Potomac. Besides, I don’t think we’ll have to wait long before Katherine Harris starts showing up at “Shake It Like Shakira” contests to help pay down that campaign debt.

Another casualty of the campsign, I think, is John Kerry’s notion that he’s got a Dove Bar’s chance in Hell of getting a second shot at the Democratic presidential nomination. I’m on record as scorning the “John Kerry insulted the troops!” flap as a bucket of santorum, but it gave us all a chance to remember just how tired we are of the guy. His intermittent flashes of fighting spirit remind us of how ineffective he was when the presidency was at stake, and with Hillary pretty much guaranteed to make a run for it, we sure don’t need another triangulating hack cluttering up the primary field. As far as I’m concerned, the primary choices boil down to Russ Feingold and “Other.”
