    I want zona to come in and say that obama is a shoe-in in next years election.
    This was a democratic seat for nearly 100 years. Sounds like there is trouble in paradise with the dems and their teflon leader.

    This Weiner business really exploaded in the faces of the House Democrats. No way is Weiner pressured to resign if they had not thought his seat was a given.

    GOP political novice Bob Turner defeats Dem assemblyman David Weprin in N.Y. special House race to fill seat vacated by Rep. Anthony Weiner, as election result is seen as a referendum on Obama's policies

    Curiously, Fox News did not spin this as a referendum on Anthony Weiner, but Obama's policies. Fair and balanced, no doubt.

    But voter frustration over the sour economy and President Barack Obama's policies made the improbable a reality, as a Republican political novice, Bob Turner, scored an upset victory in a special election Tuesday over David Weprin, a Democratic assemblyman from a prominent local political family. The surprising results in the Brooklyn and Queens-area district portend a perilous national environment for Obama as he prepares to seek re-election next year.

    Your right Fox News and the Huffington Post are just right wing hack sites, huh, No Mas?

    Not a great margin, if Turner follows the hard line Republican party platform I'd be willing to bet he won't survive the next election and it'll be another 80 years before another Republican is elected to that seat.

    I kind of hope the lesson here is that both parties need to STFU with the bullshit and start representing those that elect them.... be they liberals or conservatives.
