    why does Mitch McConnell always look like he just got done sucking a lemon?

    I would be happy with Jocelyn Benson as congresswoman, although I think she is better suited for SoS. She wrote the book on it. Literally.

    GA-Sen GOP primary is a battle of the crazies. Phil Gingrey complained last month about his 172k salary. Kingston griped about Democrats move to a 5 day work week, stating that "democrats don't care about families." Hopefully, they will both be out of a job 15 months from now.

    I don't think KS-02 is that out of reach. We did have it a few cycles ago (Nancy Boyda). Btw, does anyone know the reasons for Boyda's loss in 08? It was one of the few seats we lost that year, and while the others were at least somewhat understandable (LA-02), I could never figure this one out.

    MS-Sen: If Thad retires, anyone else optimistic for Jim Hood? He's won statewide 3 times and wouldn't have to sacrifice his seat, whereas a congressman essentially would.

      and Bennie can't win.

      ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936

      for Hood to run for something.  Same goes for his predecessor as AG (Mike Moore).  It never happens.
