    ... after all of the crazy stunts, corruption, sleaze, incompetence, stupidity and bitter spite that has flowed from the GOP these last few decades I have a very difficult time believing in the existence of a 'mushy middle' let alone if they can be convinced to vote against the GOP. If they could still vote GOP after everything that has happened then there is nothing 'middle' about them - they are core GOP and they own everything that they pretend to complain about.

    It is worth a try, I suppose. Saving souls is always a worthy pursuit. But if we can get ourselves to the polls then none of that should matter.

    Please do not be alarmed. We are about to engage... the nozzle.

      hope for a miracle from the outside. The one thing that might get thru is when folks start seeing Obamacare isn't killing them but rather helping them. Ultimately a lot of these folks have been swallowing the lies but once they actually see they can get healthcare and it doesn't kill them or bankrupt them...

      My 10th grade history teacher called it "the pocketbook nerve" and the Republicans have been using it to their advantage for a long time. It's how they get folks making $20k/year to vote for tax cuts for billionaires. But this time we're going to be saving folks money, maybe it'll connect with enough of them.

      Spite is the ranch dressing Republicans slather on their salad of racism
