    I should give you a tour of this Tennessee hellhole I live in where none of my neighbors will speak to me because I don't go to their whack-a-doo churches.  Or any church for that matter.  We have 50 churches for a population of 9,000.  Fincher WILL be re-elected, I'm sure.  And if I hear that damn "teach a man to fish" story one more time, somebody call 911.

      It's not about reaching out to the whack-a-do people, because that seat was held by a democrat until 2010.

      It's about creating enough cognitive dissonance and chuchgoer dissidence that we push our margins over the line of victory.

      I'm talking about doing the not-evil things that Karl Rove did. You take the positions that allow you to steal the 5-10% of the people from the other camp who agree with you, helping you seats victory. Going after those marginal votes can work, and help give Nancy Pelosi her gavel back.

      We all know that the only vote that matters in  the house is the vote for the speaker of the house, because the speaker sets the agenda.

      We might not win, but we can sure as hell give this prick a run for David Koch's money, which will help relieve pressure on other races.

        has led to multiple spelling fails today.

        Professor and chief, instead of professor in chief. Help you seats victory instead of help you reach victory.

      My best friend is in Crossville.  We talk on the phone almost daily.  He has become such a changed person by virtue of his environment.  Espousing crazy right wing talking points without even realizing where he's picked them up from.

      I gotta tell you, it's painful sometimes.  I'm the only person he speaks to that offers objectivity.  

      We're all suspected terrorists.
