For our core, target audience at TMV, I’ll just start your weekend off with something to perk up your spirits. My friend Ed Morrissey at Hot Air makes a disturbing catch of a segment on CNN letting us know just what they think of Independent voters. Apparently, indies are like “feathers in the wind” and are simply starved for attention. Does anyone else find it odd that a “journalist” would make such comments about the voter group which decides pretty much every election, is growing faster than any registered party, and will without question determine how the chips fall in the 2010 mid-terms across pretty much the entire nation?
Contrary to popular dogma from either side of the aisle, independents are the most likely to “throw the bums” out when things are going badly. (Much as they seem to be right now.) If the GOP is in power, we throw them out. Does this mean we’re in love with Democrats? Tune in this November to find out if the gubernatorial races in NJ and VA, along with last week’s Mass. Senate race didn’t give you a clue. Independents may be “feathers” in the minds of some, but they won’t be tickling your fancy as long as a majority of the country thinks things are still on the wrong track. Video follows:
