Weekend Winners and Losers - 01/14

Winners
Robert Aderholt - Aderholt scored a coup by securing a Dick Cheney visit for a February fundraiser. Although isn't there a more endangered GOP incumbent that could use a visit from the veep?

Steve Hurst - This Democratic state rep scored a victory as the House passed his bill to put "God Bless America" on some Alabama car tags.

Roy Moore - Moore's gubernatorial campaign gets a boost as the AL GOP holds off outlawing crossover voting. Conventional wisdom has Moore appealing to many non-traditional Republicans.

Mixed
Bob Riley - Got generally good reviews on the State of the State, but complicated things by maybe, sorta plagiarizing Bill Clinton. And don't forget Scanlon/Abramoff...

Losers
Nancy Worley/Troy King - Though Worley seems to have gotten the worst of it, their public squabbling probably has done little to improve public impressions of either beleaguered incumbent.

Don Siegelman - Things aren't going well when you have to constantly insist that you're "staying in the race".

Decatur Daily - I like the Decatur Daily, but can't they do better than this,"Readers prefer those who aren't overweight"?

You're right, I meant Steve Hurst. It's now corrected.

siegelman is the biggest loser of all time, not only that, but he abused our trust and didnt watch out for us while these crimes were committed. he is a liar.

Wonder if Aderholt is anticipating some competition from the Dem side? Any new speculation out there?

I think the crossover voting defeat is good for Riley, not Moore, as a lot of people will opt to vote in the GOP primary to try and defeat Moore as he is viewed as radical by a lot of people.

Pehaps Aderholt will need Cheney to offset whatever comes out of the Abramoff investigation.

"Supreme Court confirmation hearings are under way for Judge Samuel Alito. It's pretty interesting. Democrats want to know his position on privacy. Republicans want to know his position on prison terms for bribery."

troy king is the biggest lose, but worley outweighs him in most departments. at least king isnt a stooge for chief dullard paul hubbert.

when is someone with guts going to run against worley??? A second rate Mayor or Councilmember can beat her. "LETS FIND ONE QUICK"

I think mr charles granger or mr ed packard should run against worley. I think both of them are lawyers, but if they are not, neither is she, but at least those gentleman know the law and are decent people. I have dealt with both of them. Worley is a paranoid freak who runs a rumor control operation and forbids her office employees from mentioning anyone who might run against her. talk about a plantation with a cinderall style ugly step momma...

Troy may be an intellectual black hole, but Worley actually repels intelligence in all its forms.
