Pretty close race in a GOP-dominated district

Paul Hackett (D) 54,401
Jean Schmidt (R) 57,974

No specific thread to refer to, it's just fun to watch Democrats lose. Again.

Major Hackett should not have made the inflammatory statements he made about his Commander In Chief.

I read in AP today that the democrat Paul Hackett was a know-it-all veteran of the Iraqi war. Apparently he didn't agree with anything that the President or other Command officials had done up to this time.

Haha Hackett. See ya later.

He called Bush a "chickenhawk", the handy all-purpose slur they use against anyone who supported getting rid of Saddam Hussein. Also called him a son of a bitch.

But since he wanted to win in a traditionally Republican district, he ran ads showing Bush in a positive light, just as Tom Dasshole did in his final election.

this can't be.

on DU, there were posts about tarot card readings saying he would win.

and ppl were sending "good wishes" and "good vibes" his way.

must have been rigged.

Hah. Saw a piece here playing up his veteran experience. As soon as he opened his mouth I wanted him to lose.

Was he the guy McCain went off on for saying that?

It's stuff like that which really makes me WANT to like McCain.

New Ohio Democratic superstar Paul Hackett went into the lion's den of pure Red Southern Ohio and scared the pants off of the GOP losing by less than 4 points in the face of a NRCC promise to "bury him."

No spin - the GOP is on the run. Yeah! No spin here!

Congratulations to Southern Ohio Democrats, the Lefty blogs, especially Swing State Project, and Dems everywhere. We have delivered a lesson - Fighting Dems will win the day.

On to 2006, when we take back the Congress.


"We lost the election, but we really won!" I think this is what education majors call "deferred success".

I don't know, but I would like to look at the actual total numbers of votes, it could be pretty good size number, yeah 4% win is definitely win, no matter what.

The man ran on the basis of pretending to be a conservative...how the hell is that a viable stratagy?
Link Posted: 8/2/2005 7:38:46 PM EDT
...and, sure enough, they're already going on about stolen elections at daily kos. It's fucking hilarious.

Maybe DU and dkos are deep cover Rove false flag operations. Collect all the wingnuts from the other side in one place, drain them of contributions, and feed them conspiracy theories.

The man ran on being a veteran from Iraq, and specifically said he "lead Marines in combat." When in fact he a JAG officer with a civil affairs group. He may of lead Marines and he may have been in a combat zone, but leading Marines in combat would be a stretch.

Thank you Ohio.

They don't trust the votes, want EXIT POLLS to verify the tally

Slight problem, there were no exit polls.

Hackett was 110% pro-gun. He also recieved one of the first CCW's issued in Ohio after the law passed. If not for the friendly incumbent policy, he may have gotten the NRA nod.

After going to DU i see the light, their IS massive voter fraud.
