Did you hear? We have a new Congressman!

Steve Cohen was elected in a FREAKING LANDSLIDE on Tuesday to end 32 years of Fords representing the 9th District.

Steve had a great campaign, with stellar work from Kevin Gallagher as his campaign manager, and especially Liz Rincon as his field director. She had her crew of interns and volunteers canvassing almost non-stop since JUNE, through a TOUGH primary and general election.

This was after she had headed up the field crew for Steve Mulroy's successful election that flipped the County Commission to the Democrats.

Keep your eyes on both Gallagher and Rincon, they are going places because they are sharp and well-organized.

As for my new Congressman, whom I have had the privilege of calling a friend for over 25 years, this is the best feeling imaginable, especially now that he will be in the MAJORITY in the House of Representatives with a larger majority than the Republicans EVER had.

Oh, who won the Senate race? OOPS.

I am elated!

Can you feel the brand new day? (look at the link to see how I feel)

Everybody look around
'Cause there's a reason to rejoice you see
Everybody come out
And let's commence to singing joyfully
Everybody look up
And feel the hope that we've been waiting for

Everybody's glad
Because our silent fear and dread is gone
Freedom, you see, has got our hearts singing so joyfully
Just look about
You owe it to yourself to check it out
Can't you feel a brand new day?

Even Neo-Nazi, Neo-Confederate racists such as me (your words not mine) are happy that Steve Cohen won District 9. Now we finally have someone that is pro-gun in that seat! Ain't life grand?

See, Cohen brings EVERYBODY together!

I was glad to see that all the race- and Jew-baiting by the black political leadership came to naught. Good for Cohen and the 9th District.

And I think that, no matter how many bridges he builds or how much patronage he spreads around or how good a job he does, they'll still come back for him in '08. Good luck.

Hell, Kevin Gallagher, couldn't win his own race. He's going places alright, back to his 9-5

The Grim Reaper said...

That's bull.. He's not bringing me anywhere near him

The Grim Reaper said...

It's obese white men like you, cracker, that are oh so envious of black men like me, along with Harold Jr and Sr. You cozy up to the likes of Cohen, because he's a wuss.

LeftWingCracker said...

hey, I envy Junior's looks and Senior's money.

YOU, I'm not sure about...

I see we have a troll from Thaddeus Matthews who wandered into the wrong blog.

Quit hating, Grim Reaper.

DemoBitch said...

The only trolls strolling around are Cohen and Corker...a gimp and a that is something to be proud of.

They are going to change Memphis politics for the better and I can't wait to see what they are going to do next.

Was this the same Cohen campaign that targeted Republican voters with more mailers than were sent to Democrats in addition to robocalls that broke down to a vote for Mark White is a vote for Jake Ford? Maybe Jake wasn't the only one using race in their favor. Cohen clearly did in the primary. I'm not saying Cohen is a bad guy or will be a bad representative (he'll vote better than Jr, but what he does to influence the local scene remains to be seen), but let's be honest about what happened in the primary and the general. Let's not call it a huge win for Cohen because, as a Democrat, he won a 60% Democratic district.

LeftWingCracker said...

It's more like a 75% Democratic District; if Jake hadn't been in the race, that's how it would have broken, 3-1 Cohen.

memphisbiz said...

I know, I thought I was being nice with the 60%. Jr. has won the past 2 elections with over 80% of the vote, so you really have about that many who will vote for a Democrat under the right circumstances. That just further proves the point that the terms landslide and huge win shouldn't really be used to describe his 60% win. Unless of course you just mean huge win in terms of being happy for him, not by the numbers. There's been a lot of rewriting of context in this race about the primary (and how Cohen won) and now it's bleeding into the general.

LWC, I wish you would call your new congressman and give him a piece of my mind. I read in this morning's paper that he is looking at a national lottery to pay off the national debt. Is his co-sponsor my congresswoman, Ms. Blackburn?

We can bash Bill Clinton all we want but he didn't resort to regressive taxes to get hold of the great Republican deficit. Lotteries are fine for special funds. I take advantage of the TN one now. But let's face it, it is as regressive as any tax out there.

I hope he backs off of this one.
