Yo, Red-State Donkeys! HST Had It Right — "If You Can't Stand The Heat, Stay Out Of The Kitchen!"

Today, The Deadline Poet (Calvin Trillin) looks askance at the probable Donkey candidates in Red-State elections in 2014. The attack ads funded by the Dumbos/Morons have the Donkeys running scared. The HST-model is best: give the Dumbos/Morons hell until they cry for mercy. That should be the plan for Senators Begich (AK), Hagan (NC), Pryor (AR), and Landrieu (LA). If this is (fair & balanced) political advice, so be it.

Delay the pipeline? I’m opposed.
Support Obamacare? Not I.
Though, yes, he is the president,
I hardly even know the guy. Ω
