    ...tried to assert themselves and force moderation, I'm not certain they can in the short term.

    The nomination process in most states is firmly in the hands of Reactionary Activists. They aren't exactly on cordial terms with the "funders", and yet they expect the funders to fully embrace and unconditionally support whoever they anoint. The funders cannot buy off the activists, at least not quickly enough to change the now established dynamic that will lead to another crop of deeply flawed nominees in 2014. I'd  wager the dynamic will be effectively unchanged in 2016.

    When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative. --Martin Luther King Jr.

      changing the message will help. NAAA A Trans-Vaginal probe is a Trans-Vaginal probe. Screwing over the 99% for the 1% has not changed a lick. Good Luck with that strategy.

      if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.
