Desperate Democrats dusted off their Magic 8 Balls Tuesday after Democrat Ron Barber defeated Republican candidate Jesse Kelly in the special election to fill Gabrielle Giffords’ House seat. When they asked if Arizona is now a presidential battleground state, the 8 Ball revealed that “signs point to yes.”

Or at least, they hope that’s what it means.

If Obama was able to “carry” Arizona, it would be the first time the state picked a Democrat for president since 1996. But pay no attention to that, says Soros monkey Eric Boehlert. Barber’s win in Arizona is super meaningful.

Boehlert thinks the biased media must be covering something up.

Never mind this:

Real Clear Politics reports Arizona is an unlikely pickup for President Obama.

But as Democrats celebrated a special-election victory, Arizona-watchers said in interviews that the state’s 11 electoral votes seem likely to stay in the red column for Romney. The RCP polling average in Arizona as of late May showed Romney outpacing Obama by six points.

But don’t stop believin’! It’s adorable.

And at least Boehlert isn’t a sore winner (this time) like these classy lefties.
