Cook Report says that 14 House races are now leaning Democrat due to government shutdown. Thank you Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin.

Courtesy of TPM: 

The Cook Political Report changed its ratings of 15 House seats Friday, moving 14 of them in the direction of Democrats following the government shutdown. 

"Mostly as a result of the damage House Republicans sustained during the 16-day government shutdown, we are making changes to our ratings in 15 House seats, all but one in Democrats' direction," Cook Political Report said in a statement. 

House Republican seats Cook deemed more in danger include Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI), Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) and Rep. Mark Takano (R-CA). 

The Cook statement warned that while Democrats have acheived fundraising success recently, they still have a while before the 2014 elections. 

"Democrats still have a very uphill climb to a majority, and it's doubtful they can sustain this month's momentum for another year," the Cook statement says. "But Republicans' actions have energized Democratic fundraising and recruiting efforts and handed Democrats a potentially effective message."

You know there are days when I just have to ask myself if the Tea Party was not some super secret psy-ops program developed by a liberal think tank.

But then I think, "Nah, even WE aren't that smart."

Besides we would NEVER have unleashed this thing on the world.


  1. Ohhhhhhh my dayyyyyyyyyyyys! What is that thing in the picture? If that is a human & not a visiting alien, surely, it's not a healthy human?

  2. Just keep posting that picture - if anything displays the truly stupid that is Sarah Palin it is this picture - and she didn't even have anyone who was enough of a friend to tell her what she really looked like.

      "Um, no more than usual."

      "Thanks, Toad. You always flatter me."

    I doubt that Palin makes any difference in anything political. The woman is DUMB, and everyone knows it. The gibberish she spouts makes this woman seem deranged to everyone but the delusional few who still follow her. Rafael Cruz did all this damage with the help of the Kochs. Adding crazy $carah to the mix makes not a bit of difference. What it DOES do is make glaringly obvious that tper's are NUTS, just like these two fame whores. PayMe days are coming to a screeching halt. The Kochs are not going to keep wasting money on that floozy when she gets ZERO results. Maybe she could have Bristles get her a (non existant, but well paying).job at the doctor's office?

      I am CONVINCED that the conglomerate behind the Tea Party look for THE most lunatic people EVER to spew their idiocy. It has to be a prerequisite. HAS to be.

    2. When I watch a Palin interview, I normally do it with the sound off. Megan's facial expression was priceless during that last one. Sarah looked maniacal. Then a friend insisted I listen to it with her so I could "translate" (being an Alaskan and all). We both cracked up listening to her insane babbling. I'm so glad did. It was hilarious. Made Megan's stone face even more understandable. I thought she showed remarkable restraint.

    3. Anonymous9:07 AM

      Lynne...5:15 Am here. You're exactly right. I watch with the sound down too...but what I did? Watch other You Tubes of Megyn interviews, even with Carnival Cruz for lands' sakes. I suggest everyone do the same...totally different demeanor. $arah definitely WAS a WTF?!

    4. Anonymous2:46 PM

      You are reminding me of Katie Couric's expression when Palin rambled with disconnected talking points.

      People I know that loved Gov Palin when she was rolled out conclude "she is crazy!" or "evil!" due to what she says and did. Palin is self deceived blaming anyone or thing except her self:)

    Lawd, I NEVER tire of that trollop pic. The video of her heading to the bus after her Fucks & Frauds stint was also a thing of beauty, watching her clomping in those hooker pumps trying not to fall flat on her face. What a maroon!

  7. Olivia5:27 AM

    It will all be lost if Democrats don't vote in 2014. That's how the Tea Party got a foothold in the first place.

  8. Anonymous5:32 AM

    Sarah you remember the time when you could get $300,000 for a 30 minute speech in Hong Kong? Too fucking bad, those days ain't ever coming again.

    Do you ever look at the 2008 campaign photos and wonder what happened to your "fresh face"? Too fucking bad, it ain't coming back either.

    Do you remember the time when SarahPAC collected millions of dollars a year? Too fucking bad, those days are over also.

    Sarah you are a idiot on a downhill ride into oblivion ... enjoy it.

    1. Anonymous7:24 AM

      She didn't ever want any political office, she wanted the fame and glamor. She hired the city manager to do her job as mayor, everyone ELSE did her job as "Where's Sarah?" governor. Whacked OUT run for veep. Not even close. Next stop Hollywood for the whole fam damily. Nope. What's left? Tea Party and even MORE worldwide ridicule. Girl can't quit. She's speshul.

  9. Anonymous5:34 AM

    SO glad to see Tom Reed on that list! He's my Rep unfortunately, I didn't vote for him, I voted for Hochul because I have a brain, something that apparently my neighbors lack. Maybe this will bring Kathy back! *crosses fingers*

  10. Anonymous5:39 AM

    Ok I screwed up and confused Tom Reed and Chris Collins, I guess all these tea baggers start to sound the same to me. LOL
    Guess I'm also stuck with Collins huh? :(

    It IS possible we could gain those 14 seats and more, PROVIDED we don't ignore - as many appear to have - that complacence can cost us, just as is stated in the above article.

    "Democrats still have a very uphill climb to a majority, and it is doubtful they can maintain this month's momentum for another year."

    The momentum MUST be maintained and the best way to do that is to be reminding the country of the ramifications of the repubes control.

    By the same token, it has to be done in a way that doesn't get people sick and tired of the MESSAGE - just the people who did the damage.

    1. Anonymous7:23 AM

      We need to remain passionate as we were/are when President Obama was running both times. Volunteer - get out the vote - encourage and remind folks of what the Republicans/Teabaggers are and what they've done to our population.

      Money doesn't count being thrown at races, individual votes do and it's been proven time and time again!!!

    2. We need votes and money to win. Money buys/supports GOTV. GOTV brings in more money--and votes. Campaigns can die for lack of funds.

      If you have more time than money, volunteer more and if you have more money than time, give more in dollars. But do both!

      Anyone, even I, can make a few calls.

    Wicked smackdown by Harry Reid:

    "Ted Cruz is smart. He has always been able to talk down to people. He is now in the Senate. People are as smart as he is. He can't talk down to anyone anymore. But he has still not accepted that in his own head. He still thinks he's smarter than everybody else. He might be able to work a calculus problem better than I can. But he can't legislate better than I can."

    Ooohhh, that's gotta sting!

      Harry Reid pulls no punches.

    There should be a pumper sticker made of that picture of Palin w/some clever message. I'm not terribly creative - but, maybe "Don't vote Republican or for a Teabagger". Other ideas?

    I'm in Alaska and would sure as hell display it!

    She is such a retarded idiot and embarrassment to women and her family!

    What happened to her left arm in the picture?

    1. Anonymous1:45 PM

      I missed it but it is very strange indeed. I am guessing that she thinks this will enhance the thrust of the Belmonts.

    2. Leland5:37 PM

      Try (without barfing everywhere!) blowing up the picture. You will see what looks like her smart phone and a square (?) purse! That which looks like pink flowers is probably the sleeve of that AWFUL pink blouse!

  15. Cory Booker was pretty much a political "gimmee". The next fun election we get to watch is in Virginia on November 5th. Ken Cuccinelli is scared as are a couple of state reps. Fun times!

    I have teabag neighbors, and the husband had a HUGE temper tantrum because Cory Booker won AND can still perform gay marriages because he's still mayor of Newark, and that farcking librul judge overturned Gov. Crispie Creme's ban. He was kicking the trash can, picking up the trash, putting it back in the can... you get the picture. This level of anger/hate is unsustainable.
    I'm so pleased President Obama put a line in the sand, and didn't gloat. The GOP brand is in the crapper, the baggers are bragging they "Won" and will primary Republicans who voted with the Democrats.
    They always eat their own.

    The baggers got what they deserve, now it's up to us to keep the momentum going. It was so refreshing to watch Hillary Clinton today speak for a Democratic candidate.

    Who would appear in public looking like a Cheap Whore and think that she looks good? Only Sarah Palin would.

    1. Anonymous8:02 AM

      Oh....I thought that was a cheap whore in a Halloween costume. :-)

    2. Anonymous10:55 AM

      I hope that an entrepreneurial costume maker will sell the Sarah Palin cheap whore outfit, because I don't think you could find that combination hanging on a rack in a department store, thrift store or in anyone other than the cheap whore's closet. Especially the big ole oversized fake tits. As we say in the South, Sarah is something else (other than what she thinks she is).
