Sometimes someone can use a line or reasoning that is so out there…so far beyond the pale, that they deserve some recognition, tonight is one of those times. Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD),  who is chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, released a statement on the Massachusetts Special Election that fits in that category, it gets the award for  the DUMBEST Democratic Party Spin off the Night. Rep Hollen’s reason for Coakley’s loss, you guessed it.George Bush;

House Democrats have been preparing since day one last year for what we knew historically would be a very challenging election cycle. After winning five straight competitive Special Elections, the DCCC knows first hand how difficult they are and we are not taking anything for granted this cycle. The DCCC is aggressively focused on ensuring House Democrats have the resources, strategy, message, and get-out-the-vote operation necessary to win in tough districts.

President George W. Bush and House Republicans drove our economy into a ditch and tried to run away from the accident. President Obama and congressional Democrats have been focused repairing the damage to our economy.

Perhaps a Democrat talking about replacing Ted Kennedy did not use his best judgment mentioning “running away from the accident.”  

Elections are about choices and this year’s Midterms will be a choice between continuing the economic progress and independent leadership that House Democrats are delivering for their districts versus Republicans who are eager to turn back the clock to the same failed Bush-Cheney policies that brought our economy to the brink of collapse.

 When the legendary Tom Snyder was on TV, Saturday Night Live’s Dan Aykroyd used to do a classic imitation of Snyder’s show. The problem was it was too good. Soon I couldn’t watch Snyder anymore because he seemed as if he was doing an imitation of Dan Aykroyd doing an imitation of Tom Snyder. It’s getting that way with the Democrats and their Bush Derangement Syndrome, it is so out there…it seems like a parody and has long since morphed into something just plain silly.
