Kratovil Kronicles – 20080713

According to Politicker MD, 1st District Dem congressional hopeful Frank Kratovil just didn’t have a very good week. Not only is he listed as a loser in their weekly “Winners & Losers” column, Kratovil has managed to make some news almost everyday this week that is damaging to his campaign – particularly in a moderately conservative district like the First.

Kratovil’s campaign admits that they will probably lose the fundraising race to Maryland Sen. Andy Harris (R-7). That’s the kind of message potential donors always want to hear. Of course, there’s no shortage of money coming from special interest groups and lefty pals, despite Kratovil’s claim that he “represents our values”.

This leads to probably the most damning admission of all. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) stated this past week that Kratovil will “work with his party after winning a place in Congress”. As we have noted in the past, Kratovil is just one more example of post-modern Democrat candidate – run as a conservative and govern as a liberal.

In all fairness to Kratovil, we have always contended that he truly is not a liberal. If elected, he will govern as one because that is what Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer will tell him to do. That is also where his money will be coming from. In reality, there is no evidence that Kratovil actually believes in anything, other than electing Frank Kratovil.

To me, more than the events noted above, this is what makes Frank Kratovil a REAL LOSER; not just for this week, but for the entire race.
