View Diary: BREAKING: Wisconsin Dems lose control of State Senate (300 comments)

  •  We had a similar fiasco in New York State (11+ / 0-)

    Democrats finally took back the state senate, and then lost it as a "gang of four" threw their votes to the Republicans in exchange for power.

    All four are gone now, I believe - and 3 of them have been convicted of various offenses.

    Alas, the senate will stay in Republican hands for the indefinite future as alleged Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently prefers having them to play off against the Democratic assembly. He broke his promise to veto a redistricting bill that let them draw their own lines.

    And Cuomo is already being considered for a 2016 run for the White House? Just another corporate Democrat who'd make the DC crowd happy.  He's already scrubbing the state archives of papers from his time as state attorney general that might prove embarrassing. He's definitely taking a page from Romney.

      ...if there is at least one other Democrat on the ballot.

      to make me mad at the democratic party?

      Nominate that ASS Cuomo for Pres or VP!

      I live in NY...Cuomo is a SELL OUT!  He sold out the state union workers, so in my mind he is only just SLIGHTLY (like 0.0001%) better than a repug

      I would still vote for him over the repug nominee, but I would be PISSED as I did it!

      Please, I know there has to be a better candidate for 2016!

      Never underestimate stupid. Stupid is how reTHUGlicans win!
