Oh, The Times They Are A-Changin'

Democrat and Iraq War Veteran Paul Hackett may have lost the incredibly close race for the open Congressional seat in Ohio's second district, but there is much speculation over what it might mean for Congressional candidates in 2006. Bush won the district in 2004 with 64% of the vote. Republican Candidate Jean Schmidt won with 52%.

The folks over at MSNBC's First Read wrote this:

"To the extent that ethics and the scandals plaguing GOP Gov. Robert Taft's administration kept voters from favoring Schmidt, the national party may worry that the whole Jack Abramoff/Tom DeLay/Bob Ney/dysfunctional House ethics panel ball of wax may do the same in 2006. "

  • "the national party may worry that the whole Jack Abramoff/Tom DeLay/Bob Ney/dysfunctional House ethics panel ball of wax may do the same in 2006."
    Hopefully the ball of wax will turn to a ball of nice warm tar that the whole works are forced to embrace as their own.

  • This post is further proof that you and your fringe friends aren't pro-ethics, you're anti-Republican

  • More like Anti corrupt republican, get off your high horse.

    Nobody is saying its all corrupt republicans only who are breaking the law. There's also democrats, like Buddy Daley and Jim McDermott. I'd rather not have any of these folks in congress who have broken the law.
