Inquiring minds want to know

Hey ma-3 its your choice.

If you have to describe the mood in this state for democrats FEAR is the best word to describe it.

It is palatable, sitting democrats tout their conservative records, statewide office holders duck debates and people who have had term after term spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to keep seats that they haven’t had to fight to keep for years.

I talked to a statehouse contact this weekend and the amount of panic in the statehouse (read Democratic party) of what the results Tuesday will bring and palatable fear of the voter.

The famous verse is “Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; wisdom and instruction fools despise.” Proverbs 1:7. Fear and respect of the voter is the beginning of wisdom for elected officials who somehow have forgotten that their jobs and prerogatives are completely dependent on the decision of the voters to send them back.

The fault of the state of affairs, is frankly the voters of the state. We have had the power for decades and convinced ourselves we did not.

In a republic we always get the government we deserve, may we deserve better than what we have.

Update: A expression of the panic democrats are in is the “wingnut” mailer from Jim McGovern. Unlike most democrats he has NOT run away from his far left roots and even Marty Lamb (and I ) give him credit for that, but like almost every democrat he has found the need to go not just negative but CRAZY negative:

Panic Attacks from Jim McGovern

The real irony of the attack comes on page two, with a particular picture:

An opponent of the Arizona immigration law calls Marty Lamb a Nazi

The photo on the flyer comes from the Tea Party protest of the Worcester City Council’s attempt to boycott Arizona for attempting to enforce immigration law. At that particular protest said protester in the photo got into Marty Lamb’s face and called this relative of Holocaust survivors…wait for it a Nazi!

I was shocked at the story and interviewed Marty about it BACK IN MAY months ago, but the MSM didn’t find enough irony of a tolerant liberal calling a Jewish candidate a Nazi interesting enough to report on.

McGovern apparently has no sense of Irony.

Getting ready for the Red and Blue Political Horror Show

Every now and again Stacy will throw a zinger at Allahpundit for never linking to him and I tend to smile. Allah’s mistrust of all things Palin annoys me but it never was a big deal one way or the other.

Well the clip that Stacy posted & the interview I shot at the Marty Lamb / Jim McGovern debate seems to have become the talk of the conservative town at the Gunn event many where talking about it. You would think that it would rate a link from allahpundit.

It did rate a link, to RCP:

Via RCP. At Reason, Jacob Sullum is on the money:

Cripes even Wikipedia got a link instead of Stacy and Stacy was THERE.

I’ve got nothing against RCP but next time Stacy comment on how Allah won’t link to him or to HIS story. I’m going to listen.
