Blanche Lincoln:

“The larger message being sent to the administration and Congress is: You are with us or you are against us,” said Patterson, Lincoln’s campaign manager. “The left feels frustrated after eight years [of President George W. Bush] their agenda should be at the forefront and should be passed in its entirety in the first year. That didn’t happen and that anger, some of that is being magnified in our race.”

This might – I repeat, might – be a plausible defense for the Obama administration, which can claim that it’s had to make unpalatable compromises because its awesome progressive agenda has been obstructed by Congress, but it is disingenuous at best coming from one of the obstructors herself.

Instead, Lincoln’s campaign manager pretends that his boss is just some kind of innocent bystander, caught up in “the left’s” overall frustration with Congress, and not one of the primary causes of it.

    Oh, those extremist lefties. They wanted this healthcare shit; no one else did. What a bullshit attempt to ignore the fact that the vast majority of Americans want meaningful healthcare reform and gave the Democrats both houses and the WH to get it, while she stands up and obstructs every painful inch forward.

    I don’t even have any words bad enough for someone who thinks that her continued presence in the Senate trumps the lives of 45 million a year plus the financial and physical hardship of hundreds of millions more. And she can’t even get that calculation right: she will lose that seat no matter how she votes, so her belief that sprinting to the right can save her are just that much more of her bad judgment.

    And good riddance. I will be dancing over her electoral grave. Harry’s, too (if the Republicans were smart, they’d be deliberately tanking NV instead of gunning for him; he’s like their secret weapon).

    And I really really want to see Lieberman and Nelson go down hard in ’12.

    Lieberman’s not running again. He’s already begun his new post-Senate insurance/pharma lobbying job, as demonstrated by every move he’s made for the past two years.
