FRONT PAGE CONTRIBUTOR

Mike McIntyre cuts and ru… what’s that? CAROLYN MCCARTHY (D, NY-04) is out?

Carolyn “I’m blaming my lung cancer on my father being around asbestos and not my pack-a-day habit?” McCarthy? Carolyn “I used Heath Shuler’s money-laundering-for-lobbyists scheme” McCarthy? Carolyn “PMA Porker” McCarthy?

Ayup. Announced it at the same time as McIntyre. My response?

“O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
He chortled in his joy.

There are a multitude of pleasures in the world, and many do in fact surpass the one of watching a bad legislator decide that it’s no fun anymore and that it’s time for her to go home. But this is still a happy thing to see. Oh, sure, it’s supposedly an impossible district for us (although Cook is now scoring it as Lean Democrat*); but whoever replaces McCarthy would still be an improvement. Probably.

No, wait, I forgot: “barrel shrouds.” The woman tried to ban them, and she didn’t even know what they were.

Yeah, whoever replaces her would be an improvement.

PS: What, Mike McIntyre? Poor so-and-so was dead in the water and his district is now Likely Republican. …Which we knew, already. Seriously, it’s not like the Democrats were going to retake the House anyway
