      have been chopped up and gerrymandered to hell and back. So you're left with districts that have just enough GOP'ers in them to elect asshats like Huelskamp.

      represents the Big First District, which is literally the entire western half of the state. It's an R+27 district.
      Though I'm beginning to hear grumbling from the moderate Republicans.
       These are farmers out here, and ranchers, and Huelskamp was appointed to the Agriculture Committee in 2010, only to get thrown off  last year for being a pain in the ass.
      Then he voted against the Farm Bill. So he's still got a solid core of the far right supporting him, but the moderates are getting fed up.
      But all we can hope for to replace him is another Republican.
      And he's actually a lot of fun because he says such stupid things sometimes (this is the second time he's appeared in a front page article!) when he goes on right wing radio. But he's been on MSNBC too. He's a media whore.
