A state that has given us Walmart, a centrist Democratic president, a rapist-paroling governor, a ban on gay adoptions, and two right-wing Democratic senators and now the worst of those two senators won the primary last night. Blanche Lincoln beat Bill Halter for the nomination and will face the Republican John Boozman (yes that's his real name). Lincoln has spent the last few months trashing labor and every good thing Democrats have done and millions of corporate dollars later, she has won.
You know what, even though she's a Democrat, I hope she loses and her poll numbers look that way too. Conservative and centrist Democrats are killing the party even if they are giving us a placebo majority. Liberalism is the only way to go, triangulation needs strangulation.
