    Thank you for all of your hard work.  It does look like they have dressed her up like a sheep, hoping we dont see the fangs.

    Living in HI-02, we have a legacy of sending great Reps to Congress: Patsy Mink having been one of the best of all time in my opinion.  She was one of the few standing up against the VietNam war and an early fighter for women's rights. And Mazie Hirono has been a good progressive caucus memeber.  
    But we have also sent a total loser:  Ed Case, D(ino), supporter of Bush's invasion and occupation of Iraq.
    I fear the pendulum is swinging back to the right again.

      Does make it a bit difficult to figure out the Case/Gabbard campaign of 2004.  Did Gabbard run to Case's left on any issues?  In the Honolulu Magazine article, Case says Gabbard was running "a single-issue campaign" on gay issues--one area where Case was undeniably liberal as far as I know.  And Tulsi's line about gay supporters of Ed Case might be telling too.  But maybe Gabbard was more liberal about some issues in that campaign--anyone remember it?

      And thanks for the compliment--I don't know if the Gabbard campaign is deceptive or just really close-knit and familial--but I think it's notable either way.
