Lambert to the Slaughter

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.... and sometimes even sweet justice.

Donald McEachin upset 30-year veteran state Sen. Benjamin J. Lambert yesterday in a Democratic primary in the Richmond, Virginia area.

Lambert, a Democrat, is the politico who not only supported GOP Senator "Macaca" Allen in his race against successful Democratic challenger Jim Webb, but Lambert rode in The Decider's limo to an appearance onstage with Bush at a rally for Allen.

The now U.S. Senator Webb actively campaigned for McEachin who enthused, "Jim Webb did everything we asked him to," .... Webb appeared in advertisements and made recorded phone messages on McEachin's behalf.

Lambert said his support of Allen probably cost him his job. "I thought the Allen folks would have helped me more, but it didn't work out that way."

He thought wrong. The "Allen folks" were being true to character... none.

Sorry to write this is the comments section, but I had difficulty finding contact info for you. In any event, my name is Alex. I'm an editor for Reality Check, a new non-partisan blog that tracks the flip-flops and consistency of the leading presidential candidates on both sides of the aisle. It's a great resource for informed Iowa voters, and anyone who wants to keep the candidates honest. We hope you'll consider either a link exchange or writing a post about us. You can find us at By the way, we've already been featured on Time Magazine's web site site, in the Providence Journal, on Crooks and Liars and received testimonials from a McCain advisor and two former Clinton advisors. Thanks, Alex

Sorry to see Lambert lose...
McEachin is not a nice man who
has been hanging around the halls
of Richmond government in order to
get away from his "pitifully" law
practice....Looks like his "sucking
up" to Jim Webb paid off...Also
you have another reader....Philip

Philip, It seems a little more complicated than McEachin brown-nosing Webb. I think Webb might have supported whoever ran against Lambert because of Lambert's public support of Allen and his appearance at a rally for Allen with Bush.

You evidently have firsthand knowledge of McEachin.... I was just looking at the payback aspect for Webb.

Thanks for your input. Do you think McEachin will have trouble winning in the general election?
