Kristen Gillibrand?

Liberal Democrats have been wary of her because she ran for re-election with the backing of the National Rifle Association, opposed the federal TARP program to rescue banks, and has been less than enthusiastic about gay marriage.

And she was supported by Schmuck Chewer Chuck Schumer. So what gives? Good news, I guess, but what’s the game plan?

UPDATE 8:20 PM: I was coming home and heard a bit about her, and about Chuckie’s support (and McCarthy calling her “an NRA poster child”) And it came to me:

Shoots? Check

Has small children? Check

Meteoric political rise, beating an entrenched opponent? Check

Comes from an ignored part of her overall polity? Check

Not bad looking? Check

Religious? Dunno, but I’m betting.

Kristen Gillibrand is the Sarah Palin of the Left. Paterson is not stupid; he knows a winning formula when he sees one. Ditto Chuckie. It’s typical of the Democrats though to try something that’s already been done.

    She is a liberal, jsut was a pretend faker on a few issues because of her conservative district. She will revert to true lib form like any snake politician would.

    Reading your update, it hit me that Mr. Beck probably knows a good deal about her. It sounds like her Congressional district is in his neck of the woods–either the one he lives in, or the one next to it. (Of course, they’re a bit more spread out there than what I’m used to; I drive through three Congressional Districts just going to work every day.)

    Billy’s probably heard quite a bit. OTOH, it might not interest him to quantify the exact degree and nature of her ciminality.
