The Thursday wrap
Whose flood? Remember all those Democrat candidates on all those stumps complaining about all that money from Republican sources flooding the just-ended campaignâ¢ Well, it turns out that Democrats outspent the GOP on television ads for their losing effort to retain control of the U.S. House. The difference was $142 million to $119 million in the Democrats’ favor. That liberals continue to think that repeatedly saying something makes it so shows why they lost the House.
Dumped dumpers: CBS affiliate KTVA-TV in Seattle fired two news producers at the heart of the never disconnected telephone call who, after they thought it was over, engaged in a conversation that certainly gave the impression they were out to get Republican U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller. Once upon a time, such antics would have been rewarded. Wow, the revolution really must be under way, eh?
A loaded horse: A Boston-area high school suspended senior Dan Depaolis for two days for riding a horse to school as part of a “spirit week” celebration. The school supposedly said it considered the stunt akin to bringing a “loaded firearm” to school. Only if the horse had recently eaten a big bucket of oats coated with molasses and then required a colonic, if you catch our drift.
