    Ohio. When Kasich first strapped on his Golden Dildo of Democracy and went straight into the union busting and other crap, a handful of R state senators stood firm and refused to go along -- and for their troubles I believe they were summarily banished from any committees they were on.

    I don't even know if they survived the 2012 election (I doubt it - Ohio's still baggy on the ends and blue in the middle).

    The problem is the moderates -- who were already afraid of their traditional enemies like the NRA -- are in extreme fear of the Tea Party Ignoramus Caucus and the multi-millions of outsider dark money they allow to be funneled through them.

    It's really sad that so many of the local races are being determined by dollars from hundreds of miles away and from people who can barely find Ohio on a goddam map.

    But that's the way the system's rigged, and it ain't gonna change until the SCOTUS is.

    The Tea Party has become the Kudzu of the GOP.
