Rubber Stamp This

October 25, 2010 - Terry Estep
I'm trying to narrow down my Halloween costume options. Given the tone of the election, I'm thinking an Obama, Reid, or Pelosi mask should earn me a Scariest Costume award. I can lurk outside a conservative's house and jump out screaming "OBAMACARE! BOOGA-BOOGA-BOOGA!" and clean up on the spilled candy when they run back inside to hide under the bed.

I'm ready for the election to be over. The constant polling calls are bad enough, but the constant drumbeat of Raese ads describing Governor Manchin as a "rubber stamp" for the Obama agenda are worse. Has Raese ever put forth a reason Manchin shouldn't be elected other than his concern that Manchin will be Obama's lapdog? If so, I haven't heard it. Even the trucker dudes in the pathetic "hicky" ad touted Manchin as a good governor.

I think the part that makes me laugh is the idea of Raese trying to paint Manchin as a "rubber stamp," but we're supposed to believe Raese won't march in sync with Mitch McConnell and do whatever the Republicans tell him... which invariably will be to vote against anything Obama puts forth. I'd like to see the dreaded Obama-Reid-Pelosi Axis of Super Evil crafting a law calling for kittens and blankets for orphans, just so I can see the GOP vote against kittens and blankets for orphans. Raese would break out his rubber stamp and go along with that vote in a heartbeat.

Raese should've tried coming up with reasons why he'd be a positive force for West Virginia instead of campaigning against Obama, Reid, and Pelosi. I think the reason he didn't is because he doesn't know any.
