    You're free to remember it however you want.

    I looked at 2010 as a repeat of the idiocy of 2000.

      I think you are confusing the voting public at large with all the "I'm gonna hold my breath till I turn blue" kossacks here. IMO, 2010 was actually like a lot of off year elections, people don't show up unless they are motivated.

      Let's all face it, the teahadists were way more energized than progressives were. We have a new election coming up, and it's time we get as energized as they are.

      I have no doubt that the NAACP and similar organizations are working their asses off right now. Let's join 'em.

      Try facts next time, they're refreshing!

      I consider myself part of the left, and in 2010 I worked every weekend in a district almost 2 hours from my home, to save the seat of a Congressperson notably more moderate than I am (but a very decent person). We won that race by less that 400 votes.

      You can thank me now, and apologize.
