At the Keith Fimian HQ running in va-11 here in Fairfax

The HQ front door

It is a beehive of activity, people are in and out and excited. In the half hour I’ve been here workers have been in and out and in and out. The candidate has a debate tonight and time and preparation are being devoted to nailing it down.

Signs of the times, lots of activity at the Fimian HQ

Even as I was preparing to pack up a man named Joe Van Dalsum came in and picked up a sign as well.

I talked to the campaign mgr Tim Edson and the story is the same, a democrat running from his record and playing the attack card and very little national polling to try to hide the decline so to speak.

Well you can’t hide voter enthusiasm and they have it here.

It is crunch time for the DaTechGuy / Robert Stacy McCain road trip to hit districts in NY and Penn.

We are at least $300 short from being able to do this and that doesn’t even count any meals or hotels.

If we can get the last $300 $275 $250 $190 $165 $135 the road trip is on. If we can’t the road trip is off. I’m in no financial position to do this at a deficit.

So if you would like to see us hit some districts consider hitting DaTipJar to finance the trip and lets see if we can make it.

Consider how much of a difference its making in MA-3 and Marty Lamb because we were there. Could that happen in your district?

If not. Well Stacy can find a last min flight and I have plenty to do around here.

Remember when everyone told us that democrats should run on their records supporting Obamacare and the president when the people were screaming otherwise in polls?

I’m sure the leadership said they would stand behind them.

Apparently as the Cyberleader once told Miss Hartigan “That would be classified as a lie” as politico reports:

Facing a perilous political environment that has left the House Democratic majority in jeopardy, Van Hollen told reporters in a briefing at the National Press Club that the party faces a series of difficult decisions about which candidates to invest in this fall — and whom to leave behind

“At the end of the day, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee will look at races we can win,” Van Hollen said.

And in the same breath he insists the democrats will retain the house.

So to all you democrats who thought it would be a good idea to let Obamacare pass and to all you blue dogs who pulled a Fishbait Miller thinking that Pelosi and co would save you, I have one word.

SUCKERS!

A wheel of fish award for you!

Update: Who would have guessed the first death panel from obamacare would be a political one for ailing democratic members?

Bill Gunn appeared on local public access TV this Wednesday:

Shortly after the interview I spoke with him myself:

During the hearing on the Health Care Bill he was in the congressional galleries and at one point shouted out “Kill the Bill”. For saying aloud what the great majority of the American people were thinking he was charged with “disruption of congress” so Bill will be in Washington from Sunday the 22nd through Saturday the 28th working at the Greater Capital Hill food bank to settle that charge.

Hopefully the next time he he arrives in Washington it will be to help to first de-fund and then repeal that bill.
