    Citizens United and gerrymandering seems a bit optimistic to me. Hope I'm wrong.

    Furthermore, this is a relatively rare instance in which the interests of Wall Street and Main Street happen to more or less coincide and thus may not represent a significant ideological or political realignment. Again, hope I'm wrong.

      A lot of these people will be insulated from consequences, at least in the House.  But the gerrymandering has also created a sort of reality bubble where they have to keep running farther and farther away from the general public in order not to get primaried by even crazier teabaggers.  I just can't believe that this is a sustainable strategy.  It seems inevitable that the house of cards they have constructed will have to collapse eventually.

        With a BIIIIG push from activated Democrats who are effin' fed up with this GOP stupidity, and finally willing to do what's needed to "reclaim our rogue government"

        Help American return to sanity - vote the GOP OUT OF the House Majority and reduce their numbers in the Senate in 2014 elections. America requires Democratic action in order to survive!
