The more Victoria Wulsin talks, the less people are going to like her

March 7, 2008 01:14 PM

Here she is, chirping away like a Chatty Cathy doll, on the radical left-wing cesspool that is Firedoglake.  Here's her take on crossover voters:

The 2nd District has some very interesting dynamics. Congressman Bob McEwen [OH-R] called this morning to congratulate me. He said that at his dinner table last night, the other six guests - all Republicans - had chosen Democratic ballots and voted for, yep, Vic Wulsin! He says the Repubs want her OUT (he barely lost to her in the ‘06 primary, so remember where he’s coming from) and want a reasonable alternative. So, I’d like to think some of the crossing-over comes from a desire to get Schmidt out. As an epidemiologist, I look forward to crunching some numbers to see where the biggest “crossing-over” occurred, and how that affected the Clinton:Obama ratio and the Wulsin:Black ratio.

Okay, first, why the hell is Bob McEwen calling Victoria Wulsin to congratulate her? Can that man possibly do more to destroy his reputation?  And two: How whacked is Victoria Wulsin if she thinks the reason crossover voters went for her is because they like her better?  Uh no.  The reason they voted for her is for the same reason they voted for Hillary.  Because she's easier to beat in the fall.  Third: What does an epidemiologist know about cross-over voters?  What does she think they are, disease-addled bird flu victims? 

And check out this comment, where she talks about bringing jobs to Southern Ohio by building windmill factories:

Preznit - Great. I think we could also bring jobs to southern Ohio by actually manufacturing the windmills and solar-mills that we’re going to need to become energy independent. We are at the beginning of a paradigm-shift in how we create, use, and conserve energy.

Forget the Ford Plant or anything in Portsmouth.  Let's build windmill factories!  Everyone tilt at windmills!  Come on, let's go.  Tilt, tilt, tilt.  Hey you--you're not tilting far enough.  You need to tilt a little more... to the left.

It's so ridiculous.  And she's got the completely wrong strategy.  Read through all of her comments, and it's pretty clear that she thinks the district has lurched wildly to the left.  She hasn't gotten the memo that Iraq is nowhere near the election issue that it was in 2006.  Iraq is going quite well right now, even The New York Times knows that.  Another memo she hasn't gotten?  The one that says candidates should NEVER leave comments on blogs.  That's what campaign lackeys are for.  Hilarious. 

HT: Nixguy.

UPDATE: WMD has commentary on this as well.  Funny comments ensure, mostly from the prominent local conservative blogger crowd.  I'm guessing this is the last time Bob McEwen calls Victoria Wulsin up for a tête-à-tête.

To funny.

I'd rather bring jobs to SW Ohio by building windmills than by importing nuclear waste like Schmidt wants to do.

And exactly why should I hold it against McEwen that he allegedly congratulated Wulsin on winning? I've congratulated Democrats before, even though I didn't support them. It's called civility, and if Schmidt had some she might perform better in general elections.

It's not like McEwen endorsed Wulsin. Endorsing Democrats is for Schmidt supporters like Leslie Ghiz and John Dowlin.

No nukes in SW Ohio   ·  March 8, 2008 03:49 AM

I think it's crazy to assume that Jean wants to bring Nukes into Southern Ohio. She only signed on to a study that would possbily help Pike County create hundreds maybe even thousands of new jobs. Voters in the district will soon find out all of "Victoria's Secrets".
