    because she likes the perks (and immunities) of public office.

    And since she wouldn't win, the possibility is moot.

    But in a weird fantasy world where she did lose, the district would be LESS likely to go to a dem, If the GOP nominated a more "normal" candidate. The reason she is so close to being ousted is that she is a freak of nature and white male indies have a hard time voting for her.

    But the way the MN GOP is these days, they are almost as likely to nominate a trained squirrel to replace her, so really, all bets are off.

      The Republican Party of Minnesota would find it a challenge to field a candidate who was more of an extremist nutcase than Bachmann - the candidate would in all likelihood be less of an extremist nutcase than Bachmann. To be less crazy than Bachmann is a pretty low threshold.

      Franken has impressed a lot of people. Many people, even here on Daily Kos, assumed that he would turn the Senate into a comedy club. Instead, he's been a serious, well-informed intelligent senator.

      The wolfpack eats venison. The lone wolf eats mice.
