In these tumultuous political times it seems like Democrats are searching for an antidote to cure their sagging poll numbers. If pollsters are remotely correct about their predictions for the 2010 midterm elections, the Donkey’s may be licking their wounds. Yes, it seems like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the rest of the Dems may be having a pretty depressing Thanksgiving. If the Democrats want to salvage their chances of staying in power they may need to turn to the Good Reverend. No, not the one who had an affinity for jeri curls and sweat suits. No, not the one who believes in pushing rainbows either. I’m talking about the Reverend who can sing you back into the good graces of your significant other. It’s time for Speaker Nancy Pelosi to tell her Democratic colleagues,“Let’s Stay Together” on the agenda. If Rahm Emanuel continues to tell Democrats to act like limousine liberals Democrats he’ll be asking himself, “How Do You Mend A Broken Heart?”. Finally, President Obama may need to tell the Tea Partyers that all he wants is “Love and Happiness”. Well maybe the old time crooner can’t solve all the Democrats woes, but he probably can do a heck of a lot better than the other Al Green running for United States Senate in South Carolina
When I first heard about Alvin Greene, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate in South Carolina, I thought it was a joke. I was waiting for Ashton Kutcher to jump out of the background and say “you’ve been punked!” Sadly, Ashton Kutcher never showed up. Soon thereafter, I realized Mr. Greene was a real candidate who actually won.
