    They seem to be running out of targets to after, just like the DCCC was in early 2009. Not many people remember the first couple months of 2009, but Democrats were not playing defense those first couple of months.

    •  That's an interesting list (5+ / 0-)

      Don Young AK-AL – always waiting for that other ethical shoe to drop
      Dan Lungren CA-03 – LOST in 2012
      Elton Gallegy CA-24 – retired in 2012
      Ken Calvert* CA-44 – safe
      Brian Bilbray CA-50 – LOST in 2012
      Bill Young FL-10 – has to retire some day
      Tom Rooney FL-16 – fled to safer district
      Lincoln Diaz-Balart FL-21 – retired in 2010
      Mario Diaz-Balart FL-25 – fled to safer district in 2010
      Tom Latham IA-04 – sigh
      Donald Manzullo IL-16 – LOST primary in 2012
      Brett Guthrie KY-02 – okay, this one is ridiculous
      Joseph Cao LA-02 – LOST in 2010
      John Fleming LA-04 – obviously will never lose, but this was closest race in US in 2008
      Bill Cassidy LA-06 – similar, but bullshit loss in 2008 thanks to spoiler
      Roscoe Bartlett MD-06 – LOST in 2012
      Thad McCotter MI-11 – hahahahhahahahah

      James Sensenbrenner WI-05 – head-scratcher
