Dan Parker: It Isn’t My Fault. Voters are Dumb.
December 31, 2010 9 Comments
Here is a quote from last week’s Howey Political Report:
“It’s hard to win elections when people act irrationally,” Chairman Dan Parker observed.”
It so beautifully captures the smug progressivism of today’s Left: condescendingly blaming voters for stupidly voting against their own self-interest.
So you’re Dan Parker.
Your status as State Chair is solely based on your status as Bayh’s most loyal sycophant.
You’re already on thin ice for the Jill Long Thompson debacle.
Adding fire to the flames, Bayh bails from re-election at the last-minute, causing the second most amusing chain reaction in Indiana politics: Ellsworth forgoes re-election to Congress, and loses his bid for Bayh’s seat; Van Haaften forgoes re-election to the Statehouse, and loses his bid for Ellsworth’s seat; Deig forgoes re-election to the State Senate, and loses his bid for Van Haaften’s seat; and in true poetic justice, Deig’s Senate seat goes Republican too.
Your leadership resulted in a 24 vote swing in the House handing Bosma the gavel and a quorum-proof majority in the Senate.
As a last resort, you’re reduced to sending mailers telling voters to vote, not Democrat, but Libertarian.
And in the end, you blame the voters.
Priceless. Four More Years! Four More Years!
