    We need to focus on this, laser-like, for the next 2 years, since we'd pretty much have to run the table on whatever seats are actually within reach.

    The Republicans just helped us get a little closer to it, but I am sorry to report that at least one of those "gettable" seats has just gotten a little less gettable: NY-13, the only seat in NYC currently in Republican hands, in the person of scandal-challenged Michael Grimm.

    A Democratic challenger, Dominic Recchia, has just declared this week, but he is a) from the wrong part of the district, where the votes aren't, and b) so politically repulsive that it's going to be difficult to get local activists to work for him. To give you some idea of how bad he is, our best hope is a primary challenge to him from Michael McMahon, who held the seat previous to Grimm and voted against Obamacare.

    But hey, from Daisy's Chiron to God's TV, I say!
