A senior White House official just called me with a very pointed message for the administration's sometime allies in organized labor, who invested heavily in beating Blanche Lincoln, Obama's candidate, in Arkansas.
"Organized labor just flushed $10 million of their members' money down the toilet on a pointless exercise," the official said. "If even half that total had been well-targeted and applied in key House races across this country, that could have made a real difference in November."
My advice to Labor would be this, take the "senior White House official's" advice and save your money. Don't give a single damn dime to any candidates in the midterms save those who have been nothing but loyal to Labor's issues. And I mean NOTHING BUT LOYAL. If there is any question, sit the race out. Hell if the White House is taking victory laps SURELY they can raise all the money and get out all the votes they need to keep the House and the Senate this year.
At this point I am seriously like fuck those guys.
*Oh and since Chris Matthews was crying like a bitch for weeks to get the President to "show some emotion" and now is acting like the word "ass" is just sooooo uncouth, FUCK HIM TOO!!!
