Whooped 'em again - "the Republican brand is badly damaged"

MSNBC and the AP have just called the Congressional special election for Democrat Travis Childer in Mississippi's 1st District, one of the most solidly Republican districts in the US. A district that went for GW Bush in 2004 by 25 percentage points. Despite the millions of dollars of attack ads, despite personal campaign visits by Dick Cheney and Mike Huckabee, the Democrats pick up another congressional seat, deep in the heart of Bush country, aka... Jesus Land. This is the seat that Trent Lott once held.

Responding to this result, Mike Huckabee remarked on MSNBC, "The Republican brand is badly damaged."

That's three of three special elections in solidly Republican districts that have been won by Democrats. Chris Matthews remarked... "it would be like a Republican winning in the Bronx." One of these three pickups was the former House Leader Denis Hastert's seat.

Sorry wingnuts. GAME OVER.

Democrat Childers didn't just win, he won solidly by 8 points in one of the strongest Republican districts is America. Yea! Check out this guy Greg Davis... does he look like a Republican or what?
