Awww…get Nick Lampson’s blankie, he needs a nappy-poo!

Poor Nick Lampson, he’s just all tuckered out these days:

“I need a break. We all do,” says democrat Nick Lampson, who is defending his seat in the 22nd Congressional District. “It’s an exciting period, though, when we have an opportunity to meet so many people.”

Well, I have good news for you, Nick!  It looks like you’re about to have a long break

Some great news out of Texas!

There was a lot happening in Texas’ 22nd District this weekend, starting with this press release from the Olson campaign.  It seems that the Houston-area CBS affiliate KHOU has rejected an add from the DCCC promoting Rep. Nick Lampson:

[Friday] KHOU Channel 11 pulled a misleading television ad by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee that falsely smeared Republican Congressional Candidate in Texas’ 22nd congressional district, Pete Olson. KHOU decided to pull the ad after it was presented with a letter, affidavit by Pete Olson and evidence proving that the DCCC knowingly ignored evidence disproving the false claims.

[…]

“Voters are tired of these tactics by long-time politicians and their operatives,” Olson said. “It’s time for a change in Washington – the kind that will bring character, leadership and Conservative values back to our Capitol, and return government to the side of the people instead of the side of the party. The voters of the 22nd district deserve better than this.”

Yes, they do.  And speaking of ads, the NRCC has released a new one highlighting Rep. Lampson’s misplaced priorities.

Something tells me that TV stations won’t be forced to pull that ad.   But, if polls are correct, the people of Texas’ 22nd District wont have to worry about Nick’s tricks for much longer.  From the Houston Chronicle:

U.S. Rep. Nick Lampson, D-Stafford, trailed Republican challenger Pete Olson by 17 percentage points early last week, according to the survey by Zogby International. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.

Things are looking up!  Perhaps voters are starting to realize that Blue Dog Democrats talk centrist, but don’t act it.

Just what is Ron Klein scared of?

He has backed out of a debate with Republican challenger Allen West. 

You can’t really blame him.  It’s hard to debate when you’re on the wrong side of the facts.

John Murtha manages to say something stupid…again

Take a peek at how Rep. John Murtha is defending himself after calling his constituents racists:

“What I said, that indicted everybody, that’s not what I meant at all. What I mean is there’s still folks that have a problem voting for someone because they are black,” Murtha said.

 

Murtha said the history of southwestern Pennsylvania is rife with racism.

 

“This whole area, years ago, was really redneck,” Murtha told Channel 4 Action News.

Get it, constituents?  You’re not racist, you’re just rednecks.  Rednecks who are racist. 

How this man has managed to spend 34 years in the House of Representatives is beyond me.

Nick Lampson can’t even count on his own wife’s vote

Here are the details from Erick Erickson at RedState (emphasis in the original):

If I were one of the Texas-22 citizen questioners attending this debate, I would ask a simple question of Congressman Lampson: does Lampson anticipate getting his wife’s vote in the November election?

Turns out, according to sources we have in Texas, that Nick Lampson’s wife is not even registered to vote in Texas 22.

She lives in Beaumont, TX – at an address well outside of the district – and this is where she is registered.  She’s in the 2nd District, and is represented by Republican Ted Poe. The address is on Collier Road in Beaumont.

Why does it matter?  Well, you can find out why at the link.

I’d rather be average and smart…

…than “beautiful” and stupid.  Nick Lampson’s “beuatiful” spokesman Trevor Kincaid would obviously prefer to be the latter.  Take a look at the errors, lies, and inaccuracies he provided to the press on behalf of his boss, Nick Lampson, and ask yourself if you think that Lampson is spending this $60,000 a year wisely.

I love the smell of Democratic desperation in the morning….

Wait a minute…who’s a racist?

Well, according to Rep. John Murtha, his own constituents are.  Just listen to ABSCAM John:

The 17-term Democratic congressman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in a story posted Wednesday on its Web site: “There is no question that western Pennsylvania is a racist area.”

[…]

Murtha, who backed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in the state’s April primary, told the Post-Gazette that the older population has been “more hesitant” to support Obama. But in the past three months, he said groups he deals with regularly, such as veterans and senior citizens, have decided to back Obama.

Wow.   Perhaps Obama’s comments in San Francisco about “bitter” Pennsylvania voters was part of a larger campaign strategy.  Who knows?  As Jack M. at Ace of Spades notes, “veterans and senior citizens” are two groups that Murtha belongs to.  Maybe he’s projecting.

Murtha’s challenger, LTC Bill Russell, issued the following statement on his website:

“Once again Mr. Murtha is using the prestige and platform of public office to make wild, reckless statements about the people he represents in Congress.”  Adding, “Because the people of Western Pennsylvania aren’t wholeheartedly embracing Barack Obama’s values and positions on issues like the right-to-life, taxes and the 2nd Amendment doesn’t makes us racist.  That’s the cheapest of cheap shots.”

Russell said Murtha’s latest comments reveal a “strange, arrogant disconnect from the people who live and work in Western Pennsylvania.  He forgets that this is a melting pot of hard-scrapping immigrants. My wife Kasia is a Polish immigrant, my neighbors in Johnstown trace their ancestry to all corners of the earth.  He needs to apologize.  He needs to set the record straight.”

He’s also released a 30 second TV ad.

Keep hitting him, LTC Russell!
