What an amazing night for progressives!(The lefts take)

What an amazing night for progressives!

In Pennsylvania, progressive challenger Joe Sestak defeated Republican-turned-Democrat Arlen Specter in the primary!

In Arkansas, progressive challenger Bill Halter is neck-and-neck with corporate Democrat Blanche Lincoln and firmly advances to a run-off election in 3 weeks. Lincoln only has 43% in a Democratic primary (unbelievable!) -- voters want change, and Halter promised tonight to "finish the job" in the run-off.

Can you chip in an emergency $3 to help Halter "finish the job" in the upcoming run-off? Click here!

Thousands of PCCC members contributed time and money to Halter's campaign.

PCCC members chipped in $170,000 to fund Halter's grassroots voter-contact operation, and boy did that pay off! Political insiders thought that if Halter made a run-off, he'd start off way behind -- but instead, he enters as the favorite.

Can you chip in $3 to help Halter "finish the job" in the upcoming run-off? Click here!

Tonight, we proved that our support can truly help good candidates win!

Thanks for being a bold progressive.

--Adam Green, Stephanie Taylor, Aaron Swartz, and the PCCC team

Obama's strategy so far has been to basically abandon Democratic candidates that fell on their swords voting for him and to give stealth and proxy support to candidates who are even more left-wing than those he used up.

These candidates, in turn, have been running on an 'Anti-Incumbency' platform and some of them have been openly speaking against Obama legislation. They are only playing politics and lying to voters that may not know what they are really voting for. In this sense, the Democrats turn Anti-Obama and Anti-Incumbent feelings into votes for themselves.

LOL!

Dems got creamed tonight. They are trying to shuffle out their incumbents because they are so weak for November. Doesn’t matter, won’t save them. Republicans are delivering the spanking to them in November.

It is vital that Republicans emphasize that “Progressive”
is simply code speak for neo-Marxist.

I always refer to todays left as MARXIST, and Obozo
as a Marxist/Leninist.

Translation PCCC = Liberal Central Command

Regressive is the exact translation for Progressive, the way the left uses the word.

What propaganda, the evil powers in the PCCC are trying to spin themselves silly after these pawns were driven out of office. The Obama-nation is doing everything within it's dark powers to explain away their across the board spanking defeats.

The good news is not just limited to removing treasonous dogs like Arlen 'Scottish Law' Specter and Blanch 'Abraham Lincoln' Brigade. It also delivers a extremely powerful notice to both incumbant Pubbie's and every Demon'crat, the parties over.

Did anyone really expect the “name brands” to lose? It’s still early. Not enough crotch kicks have happened to the sheeple yet. I want to give the Dems false hope. It will be that much sweeter in November.

Pelosi claims to be happy about Democrat incumbents being bounced. The Dem primary winners are generally further to the left than the incumbents. If they actually get elected, the chains tighten on the rest of us.

Let’s hope Pelosi is deeply saddened in November.

Exactly. CCCP was the Russian acronym for the USSR. The similarity to PCCC was 100% intentional. What’s funny is they’d probably get snippy if you siad they had any warm feelings for socialism. Liberals want to dabble with the ideologies of our enemies yet still be thought of as loyal patriots.

I believe this is all an intentional campaign plan by the administration. They big in November....with total Republican control in the House and likely 48 Republicans in the Senate. Come January....the administration goes into a 2-year campaign mode and that’s virtually all they do.

Good. The more far-left candidates the Democrats field in November, the bigger their losses are going to be. Go Progressives, put more conservatives in office!

It might be an amazing night for them but Lincoln will probably win the runoff and Sestak is destined to lose in the general election. More interesting is the tack the Dem candidate will take against Rand Paul. He’s accusing Paul of wanting to dismantle whole bureaucracies and of being too extreme. It will be interesting to see how that plays out.

Who is PCCC?

It's a mirror image of CCCP.

Other CCCP's include:

* Central Committee of the Communist Party of China in the People's Republic of China
* Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba
* Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union in the Soviet Union
* Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam
* Central Committee of the Hungarian Workers' Party

Beat me to it.

This organization has clearly chosen a name which is intended to match the Soviet Union. The country we called USSR actually called itself CCCP. Now we've got this hard-left organization calling itself PCCC.

Not very subtle.
