    as a political science student, Harris was just beginning to move up in the political world.  He broke into politics fighting against "partial birth abortion."  My son worked on his first campaign as part of some class requirements, and found him a decent family man, straightforward, committed, albeit conservative.  But not nuts.  He is very amused now to see that Andy has gone "the full teabag."

    Ugh.  Who would have guessed that Maryland Dems were giving away a district to someone who would work to shut down the whole government?

      And given him a swing district that Dems could win in a decent year.  Packing as many republicans into that district was completely unnecessary.
