Is it “game over” for the U.S. Senate candidacy of Teapublican Jamie Radtke? Based on this evisceration at RedState, as well as this article at Bearing Drift, it sure seems like it. First, a few choice quotes from the RedState article by Erick Son of Erick:
*”I was fortunate not to witness Jamie Radtke’s speech at the RedState Gathering. Fortunate because . . . well . . . here are reviews of her speech from various witnesses to the train wreck”
*”She was a drunk rambling idiot that took 30 minutes to introduce a director who himself was confused.”
*”It was beyond painful. At first, I was just embarrassed for her and felt a little sorry for her. But by the end of it – which I for while feared would never arrive – I was all ‘OMG, I hate you, STFU.'”
*”Jamie Radtke is not a victim. She’s a candidate. And clearly a bad one at that…Game over as far as I’m concerned.”
And if that’s not bad enough, Shaun Kenney of Bearing Drift basically writes off Radtke, writing:
*”For Radtke 2012, it’s time to fold the hand, walk away from the poker table, and fight another battle in the war for the soul of America. There’s plenty more to be done… just not in the U.S. Senate (for now, anyway).”
Looks like “game over” for Jamie Radtke, “game on” for George Felix Allen versus Tim Kaine. Should be interesting!
P.S. For anyone who thinks that Democratic primaries are rough, and that Democrats are so mean to each other, I refer you to the above skewering of Jamie Radtke. And guess what, Republicans somehow seem to survive this, just as Democrats do. It’s amazing how that works.
