When you think about it, what Dr. Dean said makes perfect sense.
"It would certainly explain an awful lot if that is their new game plan," said RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman. "As far as I am concerned, I'd love to help them out with it in any way that I can!"
Democrats, used to being on the losing end of most major elections since the GOP takeover of Congress in 1994, do seem to have embraced the idea of celebrating their losses. For evidence of this, one need look no further than last Tuesday's special election in Ohio's 2nd Congressional District, where Democrat Paul Hackett lost to Republican Jean Schmidt. After the results came in, showing that another one of their candidates had gone down in flames, many liberals were ready to pop the champagne corks!
Hackett could easily have won the race, even though it was being fought in a district that traditionally trends heavily Republican, according to Les Hope, one of his Campaign Advisors. "He threw the race, it was as simple as that. I mean, when you think about it, you had an Iraq War veteran, a good looking young man, taking on a candidate whose party is embroiled in scandal at the state level here... he could have actually pulled it off, but what fun would that have been? That commercial we ran, where he seemed to be supportive of the President and his policies - he could have just shut his mouth and let the deception work, but we couldn't do it in good conscience, so Paul called the President names on the stump, and just waited for the word to get out. It was very cool to make it so close though, sort of a tease, but in the end it was best for everyone that he lost. The country doesn't really need us Democrats anymore, and they are waking up to that fact. After all, we have no real ideas to offer any longer and, in all honesty, many of us are complete fruitcakes!"
To further the stated goal of losing as many elections as possible, Markos Moulitsas Zúniga, publisher of the leading liberal weblog, Daily Kos, is lobbying for a position as a Democrat Party Campaign Manager.
"Kos" cited his "perfect 0-16 record" supporting Democrat candidates for elected office in recent elections as proof of his immeasurable qualification for such a position.
"It only makes sense as the next logical step," Kos said in a recent post, "After all, I couldn't be any worse than Bob Shrum."
Chief White House Political Advisor, Karl Rove, was quick to endorse Mr. Moulitsas. "I think the idea of someone with Markos Moulitsas Zúniga's track record running as many Democrat political campaigns as humanly possible is absolutely marvelous!" Rove said. "When can he get started?"
The Right Place heartily endorses Mr. Moulitsas as a Democrat Campaign Manager, Advisor, Operative or Spokesperson and sincerely wishes him an equal amount of success in all future election related endeavors as he has enjoyed in the past!
We also would like to wish the Democrats continued success with their ambitious "keep the losing streak alive" strategy. Since most of those on the Left have seemingly already lost their minds, losing future elections should prove easier and easier. Good luck, guys! We're rooting for you!
