When Politico Starts Writing “What If” Stories About Your Defeat….

Politico’s Glenn Thrush wonders in print who will succeed Harry Reid if the Democrat’s leader in the Senate goes the way of Tom Daschle in 13 months.

This is the sort of story that really bleeds an incumbent. Danny Tarkanian has been receiving thousands of contributions from across the country —and you can give “Ten to Tark” today via the online button here— and Nevada’s senior citizens know that Senator Reid is leading the charge to cut at least a half-trillion from their Medicare benefits, which they won’t forget if he carries through on the crazy plan to punish seniors in order to pay the cost of insuring the uninsured, many of whom are healthy young men who just don’t want to spend money on insurance.

Yesterday I urged my audience to call every voter but especially ever senior they knew in New Jersey and Virginia to urge them to vote for Chris Christie and Bob McDonnell in the two governors races in those two states. These two races are referenda on Obamacare, and if the Democrats are defeated decisively in both states, the push for Obamacare will suffer another blow as damaging as yesterday’s two knockdowns of the public option in the Senate Finance Committee.

Congressional Democrats know Obamacare is sinking their fortunes for next year, and that President Obama and Speaker Pelosi are willing to throw them overboard to get the huge expansion of government they are pushing for. Wins by GOP standard bearers in Virginia and New Jersey will send another huge message to wavering Democrats that a vote for Obamcare is a vote for their own early retirement.

The part where Biden and Neil Kinnock met in Hawaii tipped him off

Thomas Lifson in the American Thinker:

Obama is a literary pretender. Case closed. The evidence is overwhelming that Bill Ayers ghost-wrote Dreams from my Father, the book which established Obama’s pose as a brilliant writer (and therefore a fine mind, in the estimation of many).
