The DSCC Giveth, and the DSCC Taketh Away..

Chuck Schumer doesn't play, does he? In a puff piece written about the New York Democrat in this morning's Chicago Sun-Times, written by the Prince of Darkness himself, Robert Novak, out came this little bombshell:

While Schumer takes credit for helping make the Tennessee Senate race competitive, the DSCC at the end pulled the plug on Democrat Harold Ford Jr. on grounds money could be used more effectively elsewhere. The endgame strategy of concentrating on Montana, Missouri and Virginia produced a Democratic majority.

Wow. After undercutting Rosalind Kurita's outside fundraising efforts to prevent her candidacy and ensuring a Ford primary walk-through, they throw him under the bus at the end.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at that one.

The only people who should be crying are the donors who raised that $1.5 million for Ford at the last minute after Corker triggered the millionaire's clause.

I don't know about y'all, but I'm still laughing!

I'm laughing. That the DSCC would stab Harold in the back like that strikes me as entirely unsurprising, and that Harold now has to get a real job is one of the few things that's happened recently that would make me reconsider my atheism.

:-)

But it is sad that ultimately they treated both the Democratic Senate hopefuls the same way. Yep, the Democrats deserved to lose Tennessee's Senate seat.

Be glad, period. Go away, Jr., peddle it somewhere else.

I wish I could take some credit for provoking that decision, but I can't. ;-)

Man, oh man, if you're dealing with Chuck Schumer, you must grow a pair of eyes in the back of your head, so you can see him coming with that shiv.

I'm sorry, but since they slung Rosalind Kurita under the bus and denied Tennessee a truly competitive Democratic primary, Schumer should have kept up the money flow to Junior's Senate campaign.

Oh, well, another bitter pill for Junior to swallow while he winds up with a cushy job on K Street.

Right now, Junior's Typhoid Mary in the Beltway, and those voicing tacit support are now singing the "HFJ is an A--Hole" Theme Song, cause they were counting on jobs in his Senate office, while he basically used them up like toilet paper in his quest.

Anyone seen Chris Jackson lately? Or has he disbanded his blog?
