Political Diatribes

Another conservative take on the world around us

It’s Time to Party Like It’s 1969!!!

Posted by The Diatribe Guy on May 5, 2010

I’m giddy.

I didn’t see it coming.

After more than 40 years, the man I never thought I’d see leave his House seat is leaving.

This is a good day. May 5, 2010. A day I have longed for.

The day Dave Obey announced his retirement.

Party on.

Seriously, I want top pinch myself.

    Seriously, this crusty old dinosaur is long overdue for a boot. Why my district kept sending him back is a mystery. Making things even better is the fact that there was a real chance that he’d be seriously challenged for the first time this year since… well… 1969. Sean Duffy has run a very strong campaign here and has received national attention. If anything, I’m guessing he will get some major support here to better secure his chances. I almost can’t imagine this seat going to the GOP, but right now between Duffy’s campaign being a strong one, he being a viable candidate, and Obey calling it quits… woo hoo!

    And even if another Dem is elected, at least it’s not Obey. Man, I loathe this guy. Politically speaking, of course.
