  •  I just spoke to an orphan Republican in our (0+ / 0-)

    Democratic  county fair tent in a rural, seemingly Tea Party supporting county.  He walked up and asked us the most amazing question, what's it like to be a Democrat in .... county.  We had a forty five minute conversation, the two OFA volunteers working at the time, with this gentleman with whom I was already acquainted.  

    I had always wondered if there were Republicans of good conscience that were repelled by the changes in their party, by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Michelle Bachmann.

    I had to keep reminding myself that this was a life long Republican I was speaking to as he shared his thinking and I could find not one issue or reaction to the far right rhetoric that differed between us.

    As it happened our Democratic US senate candidate was in the tent at the time and we were able to introduce them.  I saw by the look on the visitor's face that he was truly amazed that he was able to meet the candidate face to face.

    He is going to get on our OFA emails and I am still thinking I died and went to heaven.
