The Very Definition Of "Trying Too Hard"

From Politico: Primary night yields good news for President Obama and Democrats

President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party, who have been starved for good news through much of 2010, finally received a generous helping Tuesday night....

The headline victory belonged to Sen. Michael Bennet, the Colorado Democrat who, with extensive help from Obama and the party establishment in Washington, galloped to a surprisingly wide 9-point victory over challenger Andrew Romanoff. A former state House speaker, Romanoff once looked well-positioned to rally liberal discontent and give the White House a very visible black eye.

So, a Democratic incumbent won his primary. I think the phrase I'm looking for is "big whoop." Incumbents who choose to run win at a better than 90% clip anyway, regardless of how things are looking for the general election.

Trying to spin this yawn-worthy event into a political boon for the President is a new laughable low, even for this compliant media.

I like the Republican candidate for governor who thinks a Denver program that encourages bicycle riding is an insidious UN plot to subvert the civil liberties of Coloradans.
