    I'm sure they applaud having Cooper who votes with them and gives them bipartisan cover much more.

    In a blue district we should NOT be supporting wanker conservadems.  We have to tolerate some in order to get Nancy the gavel back but here WE DO NOT.  Frankly I'm sick of this bullshit by many in our party that we have to support  conservadems at all.  In recent weeks I've seen the same commentators shoot down ideas of Ashley Judd running because she's too liberal and then the same commentators shoot down liberal choices and ideas in more liberal areas.  I can understand Kentucky if there is a better more moderate choice but being there isn't any I'm all for going balls to the wall.  The GOP does and they've successfully managed to pull a few off (Rand Paul?!?) and shift the overton window right.  But I CANNOT understand nor tolerate this constant push by people on our side to always be moderate and take the centrist path even when there is overwhelming support for more liberal politicians and/or policies.  When the fuck are we going to focus on the BETTER DEMOCRATS as opposed to just more?  

    Here is a clear case of a district where we can push for BETTER.  I highly doubt the orange dickhead will be applauding our efforts especially if we succeed.

      I swear I'll send $5 to ANYONE that runs against him, even a ReThug!
      The rest of your remarks are irrelevant. GradyDem is not speaking against primarying Cooper.
