I saw another sign of pure WIN that speaks how we are winning. It was right here on the Front Page of Daily Kos, but it was not a diary.
See below the jump for more.....
It was a paid advertisement on the front page on Daily Kos.
It was a congressional race advertisement for Republican Chip Cravaack in the Minnesota Eighth District. I looked up a little history for background. The district has a CPVI of D+3, but Chip squeaked out a narrow 1.6& win over 18-term Rep. James Oberstar in 2010 in the Republican wave. Oberstar had not received under 64 percent of the vote in any of his previous four elections. So needless to say Chipper will have a tough time holding his seat. (Gotta love Wikipedia)
Now it always seem dumb to me for someone to put paid ads for Republicans up on this site. It seems like a waste of money. But as Kos has said before, if they want to waste it, he will happily accept it. It seems like even more of a waste since I was seeing the ad in OHIO 500-600 miles away. Not a very efficient use of his money if you ask me. But hey, they have money to waste I guess.
But enough background. What I loved to see is the simple text of the ad. "Help stop the Democratic Takeover of the House!" I guess they must be worried about it, if they are using it to scare voters.
I know those of us DKReaders know the House is in play, but it is still nice to see them admit it, and know they are scared by it (or at least using it to scare, like they do so well. )
