DNC Worked To Defeat Nagin?

Drudge just got wind of what he thinks is a scoop. In 1 inch type Drudge has "DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE WORKED TO DEFEAT NAGIN" (With no link yet.)

My reply? Duh!

Of course they did. If you've read my posts you know why. It ain't that complicated. The best thing for the party was for Mitch to win.

That's why I laugh at the people who bash New Orleanians for electing Nagin. It might be paradoxical but he WAS the reform candidate.

Confused yet? ;-)

In case you still don't get it: It is basically a given that the Dems lost a seat in the Senate last night.

Very thoughtful posts on your site about Nagin and the lost senate seat.

We have seen it in a lot of races through out the country. Politicians keeping people poor so they can get their vote.

Keep people down, so you have a job. Many politicians do that, and it is a pile of crap. Politicians are paid to help this country and put it's people first.

Sure they did - he's a Republican who supported a Republican Governor and a Republican President.

Is it that shocking? Or are you just running Drudge's leftovers like Kim's Iran story?

I've been telling people the slogan this time was "Vote for the incompetent. It's important."

Even small steps in the right direction should be cause for celebration.

And I think you meant a "seat in the Senate", but, hey, we all do brainos from time to time.

I've explained it multiple times. Go read.

Did you mean that the Democrats just lost the House and Senate or did you mean that they lost a Senate seat?

Basically, Jim, Mary Landrieu needs control of NO:A in order to get elected. She's one of their two Senators. Nagin won, not Mary's brother, so things won't happen in her favor in NOLA. It's a little more complex and such, and you have to live close enough to hear about Louisiana politics regularly to hear the entire story.

(I live on the coast of Mississippi, so New Orleans politics aren't that foreign to me -- all the talk radio stations I listen to originate in NOLA.)

Jim it was a brain dump and I fixed it.

They lost a SENATE seat.

The really interesting hint was how.

"The DNC teams actively worked to defeat Nagin under the auspice of the committee's voting rights program."

What exactly does that mean? Whose rights needed supporting? Did they pull support for busing in displaced voters? Did they challenge white voters?

Drudge to Leopold: "I'm the king of phony-sourced rumors, and don't you forget it"

Quote for Drudge's "Oops!":


The Democratic National Committee strongly denies it placed political operatives in the city of New Orleans to work against the reelection efforts of incumbent Democrat Mayor Ray Nagin.

Well-placed DRUDGE REPORT sources claimed DNC Chairman Howard Dean made the decision to back mayoral candidate and sitting Lieutenant Governor Mitch Landrieu (D-LA).

The DNC says the report is "unequivocally and absolutely false."

DNC Communications director Karen Finney explained: "The DNC does not as a policy get involved in Democratic primaries... The only thing that the DNC did was a campaign helping ensure that displaced voters had an opportunity to vote."

The DRUDGE REPORT takes chairman Dean and his spokesman at their word.
