Mean Jean Schmidt Forced To Debate Right After Her Yes Vote On The Wall Street Bailout/Giveaway


Vic Wulsin has finally trapped Mean Jean Schmidt-- like a cornered rat-- into a debate. It's tonight at 7pm at Anderson Center and it will be televised by WCPO. There will be 3 debaters, Dr. Wulsin, Mean Jean and another far right extremist, David Krikorian.

Ohio's second CD is dark red-- the PVI is R+13-- and if the district had a normal mainstream conservative representative she or he would be pretty safe. But they don't; they have extremist crackpot Mean Jean Schmidt. In 2006 it was a 51/49% win for Schmidt. She spent nearly two million dollars and Vic Wulsin spent just over one million and they were separated by less than 3,000 votes. This year they have raised virtually the same amount of money. And this year there's another factor that Saturday's Research 2000 poll missed: David Krikorian, who is appealing, strictly, to Schmidt's base. Polls that include him, like Momentum Analysis' survey last week, show a statistical dead heat between Vic and Mean Jean.

With M. Jean's hands tied from going too negative on immigration demagoguery because of McCain, Krikorian has the field to himself and is taking male white voters away from Mean. He's billing himself a "Reagan Conservative" and is eating into what she expected to be her margin.

Her yes vote on the Wall Street bailout on Friday could finish her off. She's now officially a flip-flopper and a case can easily be made that she put the interests of her fat cat campaign contributors ahead of the interests of middle class working families in Ohio. And, in fact, Vic's campaign moved quickly to explain to voters where she and Mean differed on the bailout. Vic made it clear that she would have voted NO had she been in Congress instead of Schmidt. This is from Friday's Politicker Ohio:
"While Vic Wulsin certainly thinks Congress has a responsibility to keep the economy running, the bill that the House voted on today was saddled with pork, included no offsets for tax incentives added by the Senate and no long term solution to fix Wall Street and prevent this kind of crisis from happening again," said Wulsin spokesperson Kevin Franck.

Although there's some more recent Mean Jean music clips, I'm thinking it's time to reprise an oldie but goodie from 2006:

When the other side uses extreme artwork and this kind of crude attack language, it's considered smear tactics - and rightly so.

So why is the same conduct acceptable here?

I love Rickie Lee Jones! And these Had Enoughs.

I can't believe Mean Jean won last time, hopefully this will be the end of her.

Anonymous, if she didn't want the picture used, she shouldn't have posed with that sweet smile

How can you call David Krikorian an extremist? he's conservative but not like Schmidt. She's out in right field and Vic Wulsin is holding down left field. David is in the middle, leaning conservative.

downwithtyranny, your comment makes no sense. However, by continuing to make fun of Rep. Schmidt's appearance, you only reinforce the previous point.

It's reasonable to assume that the late, great Texas congressman Henry Gonzales was considered ugly by some. Needless to say, that had no bearing on his ability.

Howie Klein, who operates Down With Tyranny!, is no runway model, but that's irrelevant to the quality of his work. But when his blog is used to make fun of someone's appearance because of a disagreement of opinion, such a response degrades Mr. Klein and this forum, not the intended target.

By the way, Dr. Wulsin is no beauty either. If a right wing blog engaged in these types of schoolyard insults against her, I'd post the same comments in response.

Finally, as many others have pointed out in other forums, appearance seems to be a more "acceptable" weapon when the targets are women.

Less than 24 hours to vote in Voice for Choice.

Vic Wulsin is in the lead but just barely. Case your vote and help get her over the top:
