Perhaps being an empty suit with an empty head crosses party lines?
Jaime Herrera, who has spent the entirety of her adult life in politics in one form or another while lying about Denny Heck being a "career politician" may have managed to achieve the impossible: She may have managed to lose an election that should have been hers going away... snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
The problem? Ridgefield Barbie is incapable of original thought and she makes Obama's reliance on teleprompters look like sheer genius in comparison.
And now? Well, it sure SEEMS that Heck's "got the mo"... and that the numbers are solidly breaking his way... when they need to.
At this point, I remain convinced that we will be the unfortunate recipients of Herrera's luck at being in the right place at the right time. But I'm secure in the knowledge that if she makes it (and that's suddenly a huge "if") her tenure will be short lived, and she'll soon be back in McMorris's office pouring coffee and answering the phone.... where she so obviously belongs.
