Voters Give Bush-Backing Democrat the Boot

As the old proverb goes, “those who sleep with dogs will rise with fleas.”

And thus Randy Kelly, the Democratic mayor of St. Paul, MN, who decided to sell out his own party and support – and campaign for – George W. Bush in 2004 was crushed by another Democrat in the city’s mayoral election yesterday.

Former City Council Member Chris Coleman defeated Kelly 69 percent to 31 percent, the biggest election loss by an incumbent mayor in St. Paul 's 151-year history.

Kelly, like Coleman, is a member of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (DFL) and did the political equivalent of cheating on your spouse by backing Bush in 2004, which led most members of the DFL to disavow him.

You have all the time in the world to laugh now, weasel boy

Polling of city residents indicated that they were pleased about the direction the city was headed, leading most political observers to conclude that the primary reason for Kelly's defeat was his endorsement of the president a year earlier.

No freaking kidding.

St. Paul is a predominantly Democratic city and you have to question the sanity of a Democratic candidate stupid enough to endorse the man who is arguably the most hated president ever by people on our side of the political divide.

A massive helping of justice has been served in St. Paul.

No prisoners... No compromise... And that also applies to total turncoats who pretend that they’re on our side.
