UPDATED: Damn, Dingell Wins – Rob Steele Gave Good Fight, Closer Than Most

By Debbie Schlussel


As you’ll recall, a few weeks ago, I endorsed and asked you to support down-the-line conservative Republican, Dr.  Rob Steele, for Congress.  As I told you, not only does Rob Steele get it on domestic issues, he gets it on jihad, the Islamic threat, and the importance of supporting America’s only reliable friend in the Mid-East, Israel.  And I told you that I thought Steele actually had a chance to unseat the longest serving Member of Congress who is 84 years old and has held the seat for more than half a century.

My friend, Morrie Amitay, a former head of AIPAC–when it was actually a great organization, told me a few weeks ago that he didn’t think he’d see John Dingell defeated in his lifetime.  Well, Morrie, eat your words, because I want you to live a long time more.  But, so far, John Dingell is GETTING TROUNCED by Rob Steele.  Yeah!!!!  If anything, this should show people that the Muslims in Dearbornistan do not comprise the influential voting bloc they claim they do.  They were 100% behind their Hezbollah-supporting friend Dingell. [UPDATE: Given the results, the Muslims still didn’t make the difference. In fact, most candidates they endorsed lost, including Suzanne Sareini, a Muslim Arab running for the Legislature from Dearbornistan. Dingell was one of the few exceptions, and he won by too large of a margin for the Muslims to have made the difference.]

Thanks to all of you who followed my advice and responded with donations and other support to Rob Steele. Let’s hope the election results above continue to trend that way as the rest of the votes in the race are counted.

**** UPDATE, 10:29 p.m.: Rob Steele still defeating Hezbollah’s Congressman:

**** UPDATE, 10:50 p.m.: Damn. John Dingell now holds a slight lead:

**** UPDATE, 11/03/10 – 12:44 a.m.: Damn. John Dingell wins. Rob Steele came closer than anyone. Maybe next time. Looks like my friend, Morrie, was right. But I predict John Dingell will retire after this term because the Republicans control the Michigan Legislature and will redraw the districts, including his, to be better suited to electing Republicans. To the GOP winners in 2010, go the redistricting spoils, once U.S. Census data is compiled and released.

**** UPDATE, 11/03/10 – 3:25 a.m.: Latest numbers in.

**** UPDATE, 11/03/10 – 8:00 a.m. – Final:

    Blitzer, you sure have the democrat grammar perfected. You just need a little more training from your new black panther brothers.

    Norman B., just because you WANT someone to be a racist does not mean they are one. You just love to bombthrow, and as always, miss your mark by a country mile.

    Of course, as a good Liberal, you have not a bit of problem with Harry Reid winning Nevada by FRAUD. Helen Keller knows this.

    That POS Reid has been behind for years and yet he pulls out this win? We know it’s fraud. The shame is no one is doing a thing about it.

    Skunky on November 3, 2010 at 7:49 pm

Why do people insist on sending the same people to Congress over and over again? Dingell? Frank? Reid? Boxer? Seriously? There’s NOBODY anywhere that can possibly do as “good” a job as them? Why do we insist on CHOOSING to vote ourselves political overlords? I just don’t get it. The more I see of my fellow Americans in places like CA and MA, the more I hold them in contempt.

P.S. Why are there so g.d. many senior f’n citizens in Congress!?!?!?!?!? Retire, you jackasses! RETIRE!!!!!!

    #1- They probably could not have made a living or as much money in the real world.

    #2- They can buy votes with welfare programs and bailouts using our tax money.

Real shame about Steele. A few good wins, but lots of disappointments. Bielat failed to unseat Frank; “J Street” Jan Schakowsky easily defeated challenger Joel Pollack.

One takeaway lesson: A strong candidate is a necessary, but not a sufficient element for a win. However fed up folks will be with Obama in 2012, if the Republicans don’t put up a first rate candidate, we’ll all live with the consequences.

Just like Pro football, the fix is in. I have no tust in the elections. The good old boys know all the tricks.
Detroit is down to 3/4 mil from 2 Mil. no one in there right mind will move back because of the cheating and back room deals. So keep your slums dems, Keep em. I am taking my bussiness out of this area.

Dale on November 3, 2010 at 7:55 am

I had real hopes for Dingell’s defeat, and Reid’s. What an
illustration of the need for term limits. At least Dingell
and Frank and Wrangel and others will lose their chairmanships
and maybe we can stop the madness of the Obama agenda, late as
it is.

And the fraud factor can be assumed to be higher in districts where Muslims are a presence than in other districts, considering their terrorist proclivities, food stamp fraud, etc.

Little Al on November 3, 2010 at 9:16 am

At least ther will be a new Speaker of the House.

texag57 on November 3, 2010 at 9:18 am

I worked hard for Dr, Steele, we need to get Ann Arbor out of our district… It is 23 MILES away from the rest of the 15th. Liberalism is their religion first and foremost.

sharon on November 3, 2010 at 9:23 am

Guys, we need to term limits for all of these senators and congressmen/congresswomen. Texasg57 your totally right, most of these career politicans can’t make it in the real world by getting themselves a regular job, so what do they do, they go into politics and become politicans and they rely on those who are on public assistance, and those who are on public assistance/welfare shouldn’t vote in the first place, because what there doing is voting for a raise from those who work and pay taxes. Dale, you have a point, election these days are a like sports, if you’ve studied history, you would’ve studied the 1919 World Series where it was fixed between the Reds-White Sox by Arnold Rothschild, and I also think that theirs some rigged voting going on. How else could you explain that hack Harry Reid retaining his seat? I think the elections in Nevada was “rigged” by the unions who nakedly backed Reid, if the elections in Nevada wasn’t rigged, then Sharon Angle would’ve won the election last night. And since I’ve bought up the word rigged, I think the FBI should do some investigating about some of these voting machines and voting booths across the country, to see whether or not it’s rigged or not. Because those who are doing rigged voting should be in jail right now with an orange jump suit for their crimes against this nation.

The failure of a number of sour-grapes Republicans also hurt Sharron Angle.

Little Al on November 3, 2010 at 10:52 am

Blitzer, Harry Reid won because of the scam of early voting. You can go to a early voting poll held at grocery stores. From Oct 16 thru Oct 29 you can go to any poll and say you want to vote. You don’t have to prove you reside at the residence on your ballot. Even if you move you can just give your date of birth and they will furnish you with a ballot at your old address. That wouldn’t happen in almost any state. So many people have moved because of foreclosures and evictions that they don’t reside at the address on file at the county registrar and they are still allowed to vote. That is crap. When you vote your voter registration states that you reside at the address for at least 30 days. These people should have been purged from the voter rolls like most states would do. Plus illegal aliens and green card holders vote. They can get a license and the state of Nevada does not check citizenship status of voters. The 9th circuit just ruled that people who sign a voter registration card swear an oath and that is valid. States can’t purge rolls of non-citizens or felons based on that oath. They aren’t allowed to check status of citizenship.

    Re: Reid’s tainted, stolen “victory”: Not to mention the heavy hand of the purple shirts of SEIU, on top of it all, plus help from Hezbollah.

    ConcernedPatriot on November 3, 2010 at 3:38 pm

Stumbled upon this site.yikes! You people really scare me – so much hatred. So much contempt. And to really believe that the Republicans won so many seats and then accuse the democrats of illegal activities and voter fraud if they didn’t win… could that be possible? Democrats control the elections yet they lost the most contests. yep, yep, yep, makes perfect sense. At least one of you is correct in saying the Republicans better have a damn good candidate in 2012. Don’t even think about letting Palin in there – she is not particularly bright, well read or well informed. Think MODERATE, not extreme. Oh and try to watch a little news on other stations besides FOX, you might open your minds just a little. Bye, bye………

What happened here was pretty clear. As the night went on the dead and the disenfranchised vote began to get counted each time they voted.
