The Other Lincoln

Blanche Lincoln

Blanche Lincoln

Blanche Lincoln is hoping for a third term in the US Senate, which makes her a Washington insider in most people’s minds. But in order for her to qualify for years 13 through 18  in Washington, she had to face Arkansas Lt. Governor Bill Halter.

Fully aware that President Obama would likely hurt her chances with the voters of Arkansas, who have grown to loathe the big spending going on in D.C., Lincoln asked Obama to please do her a favor and stay away.

Ouch! A real bitch-slap to one as narcissistic as Obama.

So, there is no good news for Democrats here. Sure, like in Pennsylvania the challenger is more liberal and has union support, but Lincoln failed to get 50% of the vote and has now been forced into overtime in the nasty mud slinging battle. The Razorback apparently has seen it’s shadow – three more weeks of mud is on the way.

Which means three more weeks of money flowing like Hurricanes at Mardi Gras. And a lot less for either candidate to spend against Republican challenger John Boozman, a member of the US House for 11 years.

So, while there was no winner yesterday in this race, there were two losers. President Obama, who was told “make yourself scarce”, and Democratic coffers, which are open for three more weeks.

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
