That would be a toxic environmentally friendly fluorescent lightbulb of course.
I guess we can expect a fresh round of stories about how the Republicans are becoming a regional party in light of this report showing that Democrats are bleeding voters faster then zombies in shoot em up video game.
A report released today by the centrist think-tank Third Way showed that more than 825,000 voters in eight key battleground states have fled the Democratic Party since Obama won election in 2008.
“The numbers show that Democrats’ path to victory just got harder,” said Lanae Erickson, the report’s co-author. “We are seeing both an increase in independents and a decrease in Democrats and that means the coalition they have to assemble is going to rely even more on independents in 2012 than it did in 2008.”
Of course, the hardcore liberals will continue to delude themselves by repeating their tired old line about how it all has to do with messaging rather then the message itself.
Even if somehow things in this country managed to turn around in any sort of significant way between now and next November, it appears that the best the Democrats and Obama can hope for is the results they achieved in 1980 in the wake of Jimmy Carter’s disastrous presidency.
Every day now is just a steady stream of revelations that show the utter disdain this administration, not just the president, seems to have for this country. Today’s hits include news that the Ft Hood shooting was just a case of workplace violence, Obama forced to cut short some of his planned vacation to Hawaii, the link between the Fast and Furious program along with the cooperation of the State Department in funneling weapons to drug cartels in order to push through their anti gun agenda, the further digging in of their heels on the Keystone XL pipeline, and on and on.
Lifelong members of Congress are hanging up their legislative careers and those planning on giving it another try are being very careful about covering their tracks in relation to their connections to Obama.
