…Radical far left Democrat Jim Moran refused to take Republican Patrick Murray‘s call last night after Moran won reelection in Virginia.

FOX News reported:

The same congressman who refused to accept military service as public service has also refused a concession call from his opponent he previously insulted.

A senior aide to Republican House candidate Patrick Murray in Virginia’s eighth congressional district, told Fox News that when Murray called Democratic incumbent Jim Moran to concede, the Moran camp refused to take his call.

Representative Jim Moran dismissed military service as public service, though his congressional opponent, Colonel Patrick Murray served 24 years in the military, including tours in Iraq. Moran, [referring to Murray’s Republican run] told a democratic meeting in early October, “What they do is that they find candidates..usually stealth candidates that haven’t been in office, haven’t served or performed in any public service. My opponent is typical, frankly. And of course for 24 years he’s taken a government check, because of course, the military is still part of the federal government, and yet his principle platform is to cut government spending.”

Tonight, Virginia’s eighth district voted the incumbent Democrat Congressman, Jim Moran, back in.

BARNEY FRANK SURVIVED SEAN BIELAT’S CHALLENGE, but as this “train-wreck” victory speech demonstrates,it really got under his skin and he’s lashing out in what looks more like an angry concession speech. I think Barney Frank is actually hurt that he had to take it, not just dish it out this time around. But the Tea Party movement has not yet begun to dish . . . .

But Frank’s childish behavior provides a good lesson in how to deal with the political class. Mock them, and don’t treat them with the respect they — wrongly — feel is their due. They’re not used to being challenged. Keep it up, and odds are they’ll either quit, or embarrass themselves fatally. [Emphasis CAJ]

UPDATE: Reader Kevin Greene emails: “Remember, Glenn … Barney Frank had to shell out $200,000 of his own money to fund his last-minute commercials since nobody wants to donate to him any more. That’s gotta STING!”
