The Tea Party's Latest Conquest

My beloved readers, your favorite Peasant is happy and
proud to report a landmark triumph in yesterday's special
election in New York's 9th Congressional District, the
district which was represented by the now ex-congressman
who lived down to his name, Democrat Anthony Weiner.
Republican businessman and Tea Party choice Bob Turner
scored one of the biggest election victories of all time in
winning the race for the seat, which has been in Democrats'
hands since 1923, resoundingly defeating Democrat
David Weprin, a New York state assemblyman who was
the handpicked candidate of the New York City Democrat
Party machine. The district encompasses Brooklyn, as well
as parts of Queens, and has a 3-to-1(!) Democrat advantage
in voter registrations. But people there are so angry at Pre-
sident Obama over his relentless spending on so many things
and his disdainful refusal to listen to their concerns about
same, that they sent a strong, clear message: they aren't having
any more of it!

As of 11:00 AM EST today, with 459 of the 512 precincts
counted, Turner had 32,446 votes to Weprin's 27,699, giving
Turner a 54-46 per cent cushion. In Brooklyn alone, solidly
Democrat Brooklyn, Turner crushed Weprin 67-33 per cent,
a 2-to-1 margin! All this in a district which Obama won over
John McCain by a 55-44 per cent advantage! Democrat pollster
and Fox News commentator Douglas Schoen, in an interview
with Newsmax, acknowledged that the win was a "stunning
rebuke" to President Obama and his policies. Gee, you think?

Turner, a television executive, gained the support of former
New York mayors from both major parties, Democrat Ed Koch
and Republican Rudy Giuliani. Koch's backing was pivotal in
Turner's success, as Koch is still one of New York's most
respected and influential Democrats.

This victory, my fabulous readers, is not just a rebuke of a
pitiful putz who resigned a congressional seat in disgrace;
it is also a rebuke of an arrogant, elitist, statist president
and his poisonous policies which are making a bad economic
situation even worse, and who refuses to listen to the people
--- even those who helped elect him but have misgivings
about the direction in which this president is dragging us.
If Obama can't muster a decent level of support for his
financially ruinous programs in what was considered to be
for him a friendly district, then his re-election chances are
becoming slimmer, faster, than a contestant on The Biggest
Loser. And that is good --- no, great news --- for the rest
of us!

Another factor in Turner's victory: the district is the largest
Jewish district in the United States in terms of the number and
percentage of residents. These folks have a huge bone to pick
with Obama concerning his antagonistic policy toward Israel.
Obama wants Israel to cede much of their land, going back to
the map of that part of the world as it was in the 1960s. Very
popular with the Arabic people in the Middle East, but
a bum idea with Jewish voters in New York and throughout
the country! Too bad for Obama that the Arab neighbors of
Israel can't vote for him when he tries for a second term.

There is one cloud, however, on the horizon for U.S. Repre-
sentative-elect Bob Turner and his joyous supporters; his
congressional district is being considered for elimination
as Albany redistricts. The Democrats control both chambers
of the state legislature as well as the governor's office.
But some good news from Nevada: a special election in
that state put a Tea Party-supported Republican into a
congressional seat. And meanwhile, the people of New
York's 9th will have an opportunity to repeat their message
--- again, loud and clear --- that they want no more of the
Democrats and their gluttonous government growth schemes.

So what was all that noise from U.S. Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid (D-NV) about the Tea Party dying? It looks
pretty lively to me! How about you?
