There is some really twisted logic behind the notion that Obama would be vulnerable in 2012 if the economy’s bad, and yet the country would look to a creature of Wall Street like Mike Bloomberg for salvation. Of course, it’s equally twisted that the tea parties exploded in response to the bank bailouts, and yet Bain Capital billionaire Mitt Romney is their favorite for 2012. Maybe that gave them hope.

Today effectively marks the end of the primary election season and the true beginning of the general elections. It’s not only one of the last primary days but one of the biggest, including Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Wisconsin. [Ed. note: Jon will be liveblogging results all night. Delaware polls close at 8pm EDT, with a number of others closing at 9. Look for results and reaction at FDL's Elections page.]

Seriously? This is the person Zuckerman thinks should be representing New York as a member of Congress?
I’m sure someone at the Daily News must know that fifteen of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, two were from the United Arab Emirates, one was from Lebanon and one was from Egypt. That leaves exactly “zero” from Afghanistan who “attacked us.”

Here are just a few of the people who wrote big checks to Reshma. Someone is going to have to explain to me how it’s morally superior to take money directly from people than it is PACS, or how it makes a candidate any less free from the influence of their donors.

Apparently, controlling the Federal Reserve, funding their bonuses with billions in taxpayer dollars and quite nearly bringing down the global economy with their degenerate gambling habits isn’t enough.
Wall Street now wants to punish any Democrat who lifts a hand against them, and they’re willing to fund primary challenges to do it.
