Hackett Gets Hacked!

So, on occasion high profile Dems do like soldiers… as long as they are Democrats running against weakened incumbent Republicans.

But, wait just one minute!

Apparently, Iraq vet and Democrat lackey Paul Hackett is no longer Harry Reid’s biz-nitch. Someone got a hold of some pictures that show Hackett, who WAS running against Mike DeWine in Ohio, committing “atrocities” in Iraq (which sometimes include wearing our uniform and showing up for duty in the minds of many “progressives” littering our political scene). Hackett states that the picts are of some other soldier, but nonetheless Reid and Chucky-Schmucky Schumer dropped him like common courtesy at a high profile Democrat’s funeral observance!

Hackett had to bow out against a kool-aid drinker from the House.

As I had said, the Dems sometimes resemble Tony Soprano in that they toss someone aside (sometimes harshly) when their usefulness is over. Tony Soprano examples: Davy Scatino, Gloria Trillo and Valentina La Paz (hopefully you watch The Sopranos and know who I am talking about). The Dem examples: “Mother” Sheehan (if you recall what happened to her after she announced for Senate) Howard Dean’s presidential campaign, Jim McGreevey and Gary Hart (there are many more, but those are some of your primary examples).

This tossing aside seems to be most characteristic of the far left. Like Dean and Sheehan, Hackett was sponsored and catapulted forward by the liberal blogosphere, darling of dailykos and chris matthews.

Also worth noting, DeWine seems to be on much more solid ground as a result of this development. Despite the WaPo describing this as a circumstance which is unifying the Dems behind one guy, Rasmussen shows DeWine up 9 now, which seems to take another race out of the “vulnerable seats” column.
