Mid-year Elections - Big Deal?
Wednesday, November 09, 2005
I cannot believe how many insignificant news items are put on the front page. We are hearing how the Democrats have staged a comeback by winning governorships in New Jersey & Virginia (without a message or a strategy). Since when has a New Jersey Democrat win been reported as a big comeback? And in Virginia, the Democrat candidate started out with a 70% favored vote and only won by 10 points. Both are no news events! If there is any news here, it is that the Republican candidates were even close. These states have always had strong Democratic undercurrents. If this is labeled a Democrat victory, then they are only thankful that the fall in their ranks has slowed for the moment. -- Stanley Truelove

    Although, Stanley, if Republicans continue their leftward (moderate) trend their days are numbered. An ideologue is always an ideologue, (which means that the Democrats will maintain their base regardless of what they do), true conservatives are not about ideology so much as principle--they will stay right where they are and Republicans will leave them.

    I thought is was funny that the two states had Deomcratic govorners previously.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
