Dems debate tonight in Brookings

Tonight, fresh off of seeing liberal Democrats fleeing his campaign in droves over the gay marriage debacle, “Mr. Analogy” himself, Matt Varilek, will be participating in a Democratic debate with rival Jeff Barth.

ONE NIGHT ONLY!!! Brookings County Democrats are hosting a debate between Matt Varilek and Jeff Barth on Wednesday, May 23, at 7 p.m. at the Brookings Public Library. Esteemed professor emeritus of political science Bob Burns will moderate. Come out and get your debate on!

Varilek has clearly seen a slide in his support, and it will be interesting to see if he can recover the ground he lost. Madville Times has new online polling:

Online polls are very inacurate, but one would assume Varilek would have won that poll overwhelmingly a couple weeks ago. If nothing else, the most liberal voters have signalled to Varilek that he will struggle to garner grassroots support in the coming primary election.

    It is reported that LBJ told a colleague after he signed the Civil Rights Act into law, “that he had just handed the South to the Republican Party for the next 40 years.”

    LBJ was right, but the Democratic Party survived and Black Americans are better off today because of the leadership of the Democratic Party, and ironically not because of the leadership of the “Party of Lincoln.”

    Social change in modern times has always come from the Democrats.
    Democrats have a track record of fighting for equality, while Republicans have a track record of claiming to fight for liberty by protecting the rich and offering “trickle-down” promises to the 99%.

      Dang it! Can I get an answer to my question first? The claim above was that the Dems are intent on committing suicide over the gay marriage issue. I’m asking for someone to give me the headcount on how many voters will be driven from the Dems to embrace Kristi by such a move. Whether Kristi is weak already or not is a separate issue.

      I do hear, though, that Kristi has been dodging the press since graduation. Where’d she go?

        In a close election every vote counts. Just spoke with some dems tonight who like Varilek for his position on gay marriage.

    Yawn! All the politically savvy Democrats have all infiltrated and taken over the SDGOP.

    Matt! Jeff! Come on over and help beat up on conservatives. All you have to do is change party registration and your a full fledged “Republican!”

    Pro-abortion? No problem! Pro gay marriage? No problem! Tax & spend liberal? No problem! Vote against the SDGOP platform 50-80% of the time? No problem!
