As usual, Jon Stewart and company put together some pretty biting commentary using both satire and irony. Last night’s segment with Paul Hackett is no exception and should be a wake up call to Dems when it comes to real leadership and change in this state and country.

Thanks much to onegoodmove for getting this up!

Also worth checking out is commentary by Dave Nalle over at Blogcritics.org:

As for the election in Ohio, gun-grabbing tax and spender Mike DeWine is one GOP Senator I would shed no tears over seeing booted out of office, but while Hackett would have been a marked improvement, a hack like Sherrod Brown really has very little to offer. I suspect that between the negative reaction to their betrayal of Hackett and Brown’s tedious mediocrity the Democrat bigwigs have blown a chance to gain another seat in the Senate, and I’m not weeping for them either.

Yep, another R who would’ve voted for Paul. Strange how that happens. I’m thinking we might not see this mistake made again…or will we? How freakin’ hard would a primary have been afterall? With these two guys, a primary was a win-win situation. What happened was very much the opposite!

PS – For any Brownies who might show up…let me remind you who is currently 16 points down. Thanks.

  • I love that clip! Thanks for putting it up. Paul is just to pretty to be a DINO…:)

  • RMC2000

    I don’t believe and Republican who says he would vote for Hackett. Just trying to drive a wedge betw democrats. and they are laughing all the way to the polls

  • Great viewing. Thanks. (And yet, sigh, so sad, you know!?)

  • Eric

    RMC,

    Here we go with that old argument. This whole fiasco is just a Republican tactic. Yawn. I have personally spoken with rank and file Republicans who were voting for Hackett in the special and also who would have voted for him in Sen06.

    I bet they ARE laughing all the way to the polls…because Dems figured out a way to screw the pooch once again!

  • Betsy McCall

    Have any more information about that poll? As it stands, its not worth spit.

  • Eric

    The poll that says Brown getting pounded? You saw it. What is your problem with it? Care to expand or you wanna just keep with the driveby comments?

  • Damn, I was rolling during the commercial at the end of the bit. Awesome.

  • ROFL!!

    Hackett poked fun at himself and the Democratic Party. Besides my favorite line of “I am for the environment, that’s why I am standing in front of a river,” there were many funny bits including some between Hackett and Helms at the end of the show while the credits were rolling.

    They include Helms says to Hackett “well you’re a quitter and you lost to a girl” then you see Hackett stammering…LOL. Also Hackett says “The Iraq War is the most important issue” and then Helms says “You did something in Iraq?”

    Hackett actually had good timing. Besides radio D.J., he should consider comedy.

    Today Hackett furthers is non-political political career by speaking at the National Press Club on behalf of the IAVA PAC. Contrary to what Hackett thinks, Hackett is a natural politician. Hopefully he will realize this some day.
