Democratic Primary for Maryland's 8th Congressional District

Jamie Raskin 38,902 33.7%

Buh-Bye ........



The Empire does NOT always win!!



Matthews and Trone were Establishment favorites in what turned out to be the most expensive congressional primary election in US history--over $15 million spent.

Jamie Raskin, a state senator and constitutional law professor, was preferred by the voters, despite being vastly outspent by his opponents.

6. What's the karma

for one of the most mean-spirited posts I've ever seen? Hands clapping and everything.
OP might want to watch out for karma.

5. Reminds me of how LePew got over in Maine. Twice.

 

Here, the two establishment candidates split the vote, allowing the good guy to prevail.

9. Trone spent almost 13 million and lost. I like that.

Political offices should not be up for sale to the richest individual.

12. Wow! Scum??

Is that now how we are describing members of our own party who do not align with us in all areas? And you expect to be able to build a nation wide majority?

Just for kicks and grins...how do you describe the republicans?

13. I don't know Kathleen, just that Tweety is a misogynist & a flunky. Allow me to explain.

Yeah, Tweety was (and *thought* he was) one of ours. But he made it plain that he fell in love with RAYGUN. It's about Tweety being a D.C. *FLUNKY*. A D.C. flunky gets all his "power" from his Boss. If the Boss is a WINNER and powerful, then everybody (all the other flunkies, plus media) follow him around, too, and ask him what he thinks and stuff.

But if the Boss LOSES, the whole pack of them all run over to the new one.

So starting with when Other Flunkie G.E.RUSSERT tutored Tweety into becoming a media yakker, I monitored Tweety, back to the FAKE impeachment days, then saw him kiss Mc5planes' ass, and Shrub's ass. Anyway, fast forward. I saw Tweety treat Kathleen dismissively and demeaningly when he deigned to let her on his show, along with his fellow Catholic school a-hole plaigiarist BARNICLE - how they giggled like Catholic school schoolboys while Kathleen was talking.

So, my point is (and I do have one), what happened to Tweety's vaunted armchair quarterbacking about political know-how, how come he couldn't pilot Kathleen to Victory?!1

14. Really? I've only seen her on his show once & he was very gracious to her

then. And he always speaks reverentially of her when he mentions her (eg, "my queen".

(I don't watch MSNBC anymore, but I used to until a few months ago.)

16. Very satisfying

 

The only person Kathleen Matthews would have deserved defeating was Chris Matthews.

17. Guess it goes to show that all that slurping and drooling over HRC didn't help.

Maybe he'll want his support of her back?
