Eric Hovde can cry me a river

Pity Republican U.S. Senate candidate Eric Hovde.

That’s what he wants you to do, if his latest fundraising appeal is any indication. See, Eric Hovde, who’s a carpetbagging one percenter, wants you to feel bad for him because he’s come under attack after he told a friendly crowd that he was “sick and tired of reading sad stories about people struggling in the recession.”

“I see a reporter here,” he said. “I just pray that you start writing about these issues. I just pray. Stop always writing about, ‘Oh, the person couldn’t get, you know, their food stamps or this or that.’ You know, I saw something the other day — it’s like, another sob story, and I’m like, ‘But what about what’s happening to the country and the country as a whole?’ That’s going to devastate everybody.”

Despite Eric Hovde’s best efforts to make me pity him, I’m having a hard time feeling bad for a guy who buys banks in his free time simply because he’s got a thin skin.

Here’s a piece of advice for Eric Hovde: if you don’t want to come under attack as being “anti-poor,” perhaps you shouldn’t make stupid statements about how you’re tired of hearing about the struggles of the poor.

Oh, and in honor of Eric Hovde’s desire to play the victim, here’s some music!

  1. Hovde is a fucking joke. He and the rest of the dumbass out of touch republicans in this country can kiss my ass. They have no idea what it is to struggle to make ends meet for many Americans today. To see the idiots around me continue to support the right is pathetic and they are slowly but surely getting what they deserve.

  2. I have never seen a U.S. Senate candidate that is so disconnected from reality in my entire lifetime. I’m not a Wisconsinite, but this race is one of several U.S. Senate races that might decide control of the U.S. Senate beyond 2012, so Wisconsin politics, like it or not, is back in the national spotlight.
