The Folks at "The Daily Show" Pontificate on How Dems Can F&*k Up in November

As I watched the pundits talk about this idea that the nomination of tea party people as the GOP standard bearers for the upcoming (since they really are pretty much disgruntled Republicans), I found it interesting that a fair few of those pundits saw this as a good development for their Democratic challengers. Now most people who follow politics know that Democrats can be particularly adept at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, and I wonder if we do not have the potential of seeing the same for November.

I couldn't help but laugh out loud last night while watching "The Daily Show" opening segment which brought out John Oliver, Wyatt Cynac and Jason Jones to discuss just how the Democrats still have ample time to "fuck this up."

It's just so true.

I think that Democrats should be particularly concerned about these tea people from a political perspective. As conventional wisdom and recent history show, the mid-term elections are all about older white people, the group that has loathed Obama from the very beginning. If that is the case, then the craziest of the conservatives will indeed ascend into office. Personally, I think that this indeed will happen. I sometimes think that perhaps they need to get in so the world can see just how twisted their political perspectives happen to be, and then I sober up.

Regardless, we will see if indeed the Democrats "fuck up" even their glimmers of hope for November.
