Boyda's the one who marched out of a Congressional Hearing about the war, saying there was only so much one could take. She took Jim Ryun's seat when he stumbled.

The new Gov ain't making any freinds either. She's busy torpedoeing anything that looks like economic developement in the state, and bashing Bush for it. Just cancelled a major power plant project because of "Carbon Emmissions."

Let's see now, Blue Dog Democrat, Evil Witch of the West, does this make her The Blue Bitch? Maybe she could pass that wand on to her party's leader.

This started out as a serious comment about how progress in Iraq will work for the Blue Dog Democrats, but the recess bell rang.

"or is it something else?"

Gender?

Just sayin' since no one else wants to.

Cornucopic, she ain't.

Sure, Cleo, they hate her because she's a woman. They continue to worship Lady Thatcher in the mistaken belief that Thatcher is actually a man.

No way any woman can earn the esteem of us Fascist Hyenas.

Nancy Boyda won in Kansas for two primary reasons.

Massive negative advertising financed by all the usual suspects. She wasted no opportunity to tie Ryuns voting record to Bush, constantly, day in and day out. Everything bad in the world (and Iraq) was their fault, and she was going to fix it.

Ryun is not the worlds greatest talker (although he has improved greatly since he lost the election, heard him just recently on talk radio and almost didn’t recognize him). He tried to just ignore her and run his usual campaign which has worked quite well before.

This election she is going to find the going a little tougher, as her voting record has perfectly paralleled San Francisco Nancy. And her disdain for certain Generals. Support for all tax increases. All of which will not go over well with Kansas voters.

Hillary in freefall

Hillary in Freefall

Hopefully, she's regretting having Bubba pack the parachute.

There's still plenty of time for the "Comeback Krud" maneuver - Bubba pulled it of, even without ever "coming back".

Still, every drop of water that melts a little more of the Red Witch is a good drop.

Where's Glenda when she is truly needed?

That woman can lie. That woman can parse. But that woman cannot take it--she can only dish it out, and it shows.
That woman can't administer anything. That woman's experience amounts to a failed state educational revamp, a failed health care plan, and a vaccination program that wrecked a perfectly good system.The only thing she was adept at was smearing, threatening and running a secret police operation against women her husband had harassed and raped.

y'guys - ssshhh - try to keep it down. we WANT the dems to nominate Hillary! we WANT Bubba the Hut to help her on the stump!

Porchlight

I hope it works out that way, too, centralcal. Bubba the Hut, heh heh...

"we WANT Bubba the Hut to help her on the stump!"

Nice one,though Hubba the Butt is more apposite.

Patrick R. Sullivan

Rush made an astute observation about Obama today, after he listened to his response to Hillary's attacks on him. Specifically the kindergarten essay and slush fund bits.

Rush said he missed a great opportunity to slam her, probably because he just really doesn't want to. I took it to mean that Obama knows he isn't ready to be President now, he's running for the next time. So, not wanting to antagonize the Clinton machine makes sense.

From a paragraph in the NYT article:

Ms. Boyda is one of a group of House Democrats — including fellow freshmen like Zack Space of Ohio, Nick Lampson of Texas, Heath Shuler of North Carolina and Brad Ellsworth of Indiana — who will be battling for re-election in Republican territory.

OK my observation is that Lampson is toast no matter who is on the top of the ticket. He almost got beat by a write in candidate. This is the district where the courts ruled DeLay could not be replaced on the ballot due to State law ( despite the same issue was adjudicated a couple years before in NJ that voter choice trumped state law for the Senate seat of the Torch but the political parties were reversed). A 60 % republican district who has seen enough of what Democrat rule in the House means. Lampson is toast, you heard it here first as he will have a Republican opponent on the ballot this time.

I heard today that Obama is not responding in kind to Hillary because of the Gephardt/Dean squabble that allowed John Kerry to run right through the middle. And that Hillary has gone after Obama because she is worried about him but not Edwards and hopes that Edwards sneaks past him, and possibly her, in Iowa. A bank shot, is what was likened to. And Hillary worried. ::grin::

Sue
As Major Garrett noted on Fox News a little while ago, Hillary is probably going after Obama so hard in Iowa because she can afford to have Edwards win there in a way she can't with Obama.

I just remember now where I heard it. http://corner.nationalreview.com/post/?q=YTY2MzIzYjNmY2E2MmIyOTRmNGE3NDNlMjNhMTljZjE=>The Live Desk during the noon hour.

Boyda and some of the others named voted with the Republicans about earmarks.
